New VW CC to Debut in Los Angeles - Web Exclusive

The CC will debut at the LA Auto Show before going on sale in the US in early 2012.

The Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16 will see the first public appearance of the new CC – VW’s stylish four-door coupe. And with more than 270,000 sold worldwide, the sleek sedan has a strong following.

Based on the styling of the new VW Passat, the revised CC gets a new radiator grille with horizontal lines similar to other current VW models. It’s topped by a reprofiled hood, while the bumper has an extra air intake and silver ‘winglets’ that frame the foglights.

Along the side, the frameless doors are carried over from the previous CC, but more sculpted sills give sharper styling.

The rear bumper has also been completely redesigned, with more emphasis on horizontal lines and a reworking of the chrome strip. The new tail lights incorporate LEDs, as do the licence plate lights. As before, the VW logo doubles as the handle for the trunk, and can now optionally contain a rearview camera.

New options for the CC include High Beam Assist, which automatically controls dipping of the headlights; Side Assist, which monitors the vehicle’s blind spot; Lane Assist and adaptive cruise control with City Emergency Braking function; front climate seats with massage function; as well as an electrically deployed tow hitch – although these options are available for the European market and we’ll have to see if all are carried over to US cars.

The Europeans will get a wide range of engines, including a 1.8L TSI 160hp or 2.0L TSI 210hp plus a 2.0L TDI common-rail diesel with either 140 or 170hp. US customers can expect a 200hp TSI 2.0T as well as a 140hp TDI motor.

The CC will debut at the LA Auto Show before going on sale in the US in early 2012. More details and pricing will be available nearer the launch date.

Earlier this year, Subaru announced the WRX STI would get a 5-horsepower boost for 2019. No, it wasn’t much, but at least the STI would no longer be outgunned by the turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang. Subaru’s latest special edition STI, however, comes with a much less underwhelming boost in power. It’s called the WRX STI TC 380, and
