HERNDON, Virginia — The Volkswagen CC, as part of a midcycle freshening, gets new front- and rear-end styling for model year 2013. The car will be publicly unveiled later this month at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show and goes on sale at U.S. dealers in the spring.
Introduced four years ago and marketed in Europe as the Passat CC, the car is billed by VW as a "four-door coupe" and is intended to appeal to some of the same upscale buyers who shop such competitors as the Audi A7 and Mercedes-Benz CLS550.
VW said the 2013 CC will be "technically and visually updated," with adaptive bi-xenon headlamps and LED taillamps, among other hardware upgrades.
The 2012 VW CC is priced from $29,335, including an $820 shipping charge.
Edmunds.com says: Nibbling away at the lower end of the A7/CLS segment, the CC was designed, like its rivals, for people who like the styling of a coupe and the convenience and seating capacity of a sedan.
