Revealed: 2013 Volkswagen CC Ahead of LA Auto Show

2011 LA Auto Show

Volkswagen reveals their refreshed 2013 CC four-door coupe ahead of its LA live debut.

In the midst of the 2011 SEMA Show, Volkswagen decided that it's the perfect time to unveil the refreshed 2013 CC ahead of its live debut later this month. While not a completely redesigned model, the 2013 CC is still based off the previous generation Passat, which is no bad thing considering the North American model is now different than the European model (it too is based on the older car). The CC made its debut four years ago and was immediately celebrated for being a stylish, affordably priced four-door coupe.

Although official pricing has yet to be announced, we don't expect to see a significant change; however, VW has done a number of cosmetic enhancements to keep the sleek sedan's front and rear ends in line with the company's current design language. Besides the new front and rear fascias, the updated CC also gains some standard features such as Bi-Xenon headlights with the automaker's Adaptive Front Lighting System and LED taillamps. Other new features include fatigue detection, an RCD CD player, stainless steel door sill plates, and even longitudinal adjustment for the front seat headrests.

Engine wise, it seems that VW has made no changes, as the 2.0-liter, 200hp TSI engine will remain as the base engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. A six-speed DSG automatic is optional for mid-range models. The top-of-the-line Executive model will continue to pack a 3.6-liter V6 with 280hp. The refreshed 2013 Volkswagen CC is set to go on sale this spring in the U.S. We'll have more details from LA beginning on November 18th.
