Article by Christian A., on March 21, 2012

The new Volkswagen CC models has arrived in the UK with a starting price of only £24,200 (RRP OTR) for the entry-level 1.8-litre TSI 160 PS. Its price could go as high as £30,100 for the top-of-the-line GT 2.0-litre TDI 170 PS DSG with BlueMotion Technology. Volkswagen offers the car with the practicality of a four-door and the sleek styling of a coupe.

The CC comes with a competitive list price and whole-life prices. The CC also has a generous standard specification. Its features include RNS 315 touchscreen satellite navigation system, DAB digital radio, iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, 2Zone climate control, 17-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights and brake energy recuperation.

For safety, the vehicle is offered with a driver alert system, ESP electronic stabilization program and four-way adjustable front head restraints, to lessen the risk of whiplash.

The standard equipment offered with the top GT trim includes heated front seats, full Nappa leather upholstery, three-mode adaptive chassis control, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, 18-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights and heat insulating tinted glass from the B-pillar back.

It also comes with the following attractive options: High Beam Assist, which automatically controls the dipping of the headlights; Side Assist, which keeps track of the car’s blind spot; Lane Assist and adaptive cruise control with City Emergency Braking function; a rear-view camera; front climate seats with massage function; as well as electrically deployed towbar.

Klaus Bischoff is the Head of Design for the Volkswagen Brand. Together with his team, they reworked the front as well as the rear body parts of the Volkswagen CC. This resulted to a more elegant and dynamic image of the new Volkswagen. The exterior details of the car were modified including its new alloy wheels and distinct color.

The front detail is exceptional. The radiator grille is a complete makeover with the addition of bi-xenon headlights and bonnet. The headlight housings have LED daytime running lights.

Compared to the old model, the new model exhibits a cleaner look with its horizontal lines and the harmonious designs of the radiator grille and headlights. The new model comes with extra air intake beneath its body-colored bumper. The fog lights are positioned next to the winglets.

The new model only goes to show that the car belongs to the global brand. The radiator grille has 3-chrome fins that resemble those on the US-Passat and Phaeton.

Just like the outgoing model, the new Volkswagen CC is also produced in the Volkswagen’s plant in Emden, Germany. It has direct access to the overseas port which enables the car to be easily shipped anywhere in the world in just a few days.
