2013 Volkswagen CC R-Line

Volkswagen Unveils Sportier CC R-Line

Volkswagen will unveil the R-Line version of the CC at the Auto Mobil International show in Leipzig on June 1 with U.S. availability coming in late 2012.

This CC model will be available in the U.S. at the end of 2012 with the 200-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged TSI engine, mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. But it's not the horsepower that sets the CC R-Line apart from the standard CC because they both have the same ratings.

Compared with the Sport model, the R-Line gains a more aggressive front bumper design that incorporates a large lower air intake and projector-style foglights with a striking chrome motif. Side skirts and the R-Line logo on the grille further differentiate it from the Sport model, along with shaded taillights and unique and dramatic 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Interior enhancements include stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates and the multifunction steering wheel for the DSG-equipped model has paddle shifters.

If they put a TDI motor in the CC I would buy one in a heartbeat.
