2013 Volkswagen CC debuts at L.A. Auto Show
The German automaker Volkswagen revealed a few days ago at the Los Angeles Auto Show the new generation of the CC model which will no longer carry the “Passat” designation. Some of the most noticeable exterior modifications include a new chrome grille, revised headlamps that now feature LED daytime running lights, along with a new bumper. At the back we find updated LED tail lamps, along with new bumper and boot designs.
Inside the cabin there are new trim options and climate controls as well as new stainless steel door sills. Probably the most important change inside is the inclusion of a three-seat rear bench which replaces the previous two individual bucket seats.
The U.S.-spec model will be available with the same engines as before: a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter unit that produces 200 hp and a beefier naturally aspirated V6 3.6-liter that generates 280 hp. Both of these engines benefit from the direct injection technology.
For the new model Volkswagen decided to add a bunch of systems like the Side Assist Plus with Lane Assist which warns the driver of the car’s blind spots and it can also make the necessary direction changes in order to avoid an accident. The U.S. model will also be available with an optional Dynamic Light Assist plus a traffic sign detection system.
The 2013 Volkswagen CC will be launched at first in Germany in February 2012, followed by the rest of Europe and the United States.
