Those who fancy four door coupes should take note of the fact that the redesigned 2013 Volkswagen CC is about as affordable as four door coupes come with a starting price of $30,250 in Canada.
For that, customers are graced with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a six-speed dual-clutch DSG transmission. The exterior will come standard with 17-inch “Verme” alloy wheels with all-season self-sealing tires, Bi-Xenon headlights, LED taillights, LED license-plate illumination, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The cabin of the new CC will feature Climatronic automatic climate-control, heated 12-way power front seats, touchscreen Premium VIII sound system with HD Radio, eight speakers, and a six-disc CD changer, Bluetooth, iPod® connectivity, leatherette seating surfaces, and a premium matte chrome interior trim. The standard transmission is a six-speed manual with the option of a six-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic. This is only the beginning.
Upgrade to the 2.0T Sport Plus package — a new package for the CC — and VW adds LED Daytime Running Lights and AFS, stylish new 18-inch “Mallory” alloy wheels with all-season 235/40 tires, and the RNS 315 navigation system. The Sport Plus will start at $32,850.
Step up to the 2.0T Lux for $35,355 and receive a standard with the six-speed DSG automatic transmission. Its additional standard features over Sport Plus include new 18-inch “St Louis” five-spoke aluminum-alloy wheels, brushed-aluminum interior trim, a power-tinted-glass sunroof, and ambient interior lighting.
Want a V6? Go for the VR6 Lux package — another new level for 2013 and retails for $37,730. With it comes a 280-hp, 3.6-liter VR6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. Compared with the 2.0T Lux, it adds a headlight washer system with heated nozzles, and a rearview camera. Also inside the cabin is the RNS 510 navigation system that features a 6.5-inch touchscreen, leather seating, “Interlagos” 18-inch alloy wheels, memory seating and mirrors, and new engineered ebony trim (available on select V6 models).
In addition to all of the the features offered on the VR6 Lux, the flagship CC — the VR6 4Motion Executive – adds 4Motion all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission for an MSRP of $41,420. Standard equipment includes polished 18-inch “Interlagos” alloy wheels; Tiptronic® paddle shifters; a driver’s seat with massage function; Park Distance Control with front and rear proximity sensors, DynaudioPremium Sound System, and a power rear sunshade.
