For the 2013 Model Year, the CC gains new front and rear styling and an extended range of standard equipment that includes Bi-Xenon headlights and LED taillights. The new CC makes an even bolder move towards the automotive luxury class, offering a sleek, dramatic look at a highly attainable base price of $30,610. With its sweeping roofline, dramatic body detailing, low-to-the-ground stance, and elegant frameless side windows, the Volkswagen CC offers expressive, head-turning design for the cost of a traditional sedan.
Arizona Volkswagen drivers will be drawn to the new radiator grille, Bi-Xenon headlights, and the hood design. The entire area comprised of the new front bumper, headlights, and radiator grille exhibits clean lines that correspond more closely to Volkswagen’s “design DNA” styling than previously. Like the Passat, the new CC also has an extra air intake beneath the bumper. The foglights are housed inside “winglets” that are integrated in this intake.
More visual tension
At the rear, the bumper was given greater volume, enhancing the swoopy nature of the coupe-like C-pillars and the very long, swept-back rear window. The entire rear section now shows more geometric surfaces and a greater emphasis on horizontal lines. The new taillights finish with a horizontal sweep at their lower ends. In contrast to the previous model, the new rear lights have LED elements that respond quickly, use less energy, and are longer lived.
Each Volkswagen CC Tucson model features a blend of luxurious materials, rich textures, and intuitive controls. All the seats can be covered in V-Tex Leatherette or leather and are available in both solid and striking two-tone color schemes. The front seats are heatable and come with standard 12-way power adjustment, with four-way power lumbar and adjustment for height.
Up front, a leather-wrapped, three-spoke steering wheel features integrated controls for the CC’s multimedia system. The gauges are surrounded by chrome trim, which extends through the CC Sport range, while the CC 2.0T Lux and VR6 models feature either full brushed aluminum or engineered ebony trim. New standard interior features include front head restraints that adjust fore-and-aft as well as up-and-down. In this new design, the head restraint can be pulled forward and, because it lies closer to the head, further helps reduce the risk of whiplash in a crash.
Arizona VW drivers will appreciate the variety of entertainment options that are available with the CC. The 2.0T Sport comes with a touchscreen Premium VIII sound system with HD radio, eight speakers, a six-disc CD changer, SD memory card reader, AUX-in for portable audio players, and SiriusXM™ Satellite Radio with 3-month trial subscription. Bluetooth® connectivity and Media Device Interface (MDI) with an iPod® cable are also standard. The 2.0T Sport Plus and 2.0T Lux have VW’s RNS® 315 navigation system.
To add to the versatility and flexibility of the CC, the rear seatback is split 60/40 and folds forward to connect the trunk to the cabin to increase load space. There’s also a pass-through behind the armrest to accommodate longer items, like skis. Another new interior feature is remote latching for the rear seatback. Levers mounted under the rear shelf on the right and left sides of the trunk make it easy to unlatch both sections of the split seatback. The trunk itself has a capacity of 13.2 cubic feet.
Engines and Transmissions
The award-winning, 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injected TSI® four-cylinder engine generates 200 horsepower and the 3.6-liter narrow-angle VR6 engine produces 280 horsepower.
All 2.0-liter models are front-wheel drive. The 2.0-liter engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG® dual-clutch automatic transmission. The six-speed transversely-mounted DSG unit features two wet clutches with hydraulic pressure regulation. In addition to its fully automatic shift mode, DSG has a Tiptronic® function to permit manual gear selection. Mated to the manual transmission, the 2.0T achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.
The VR6 engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic shifting, driving either through the front wheels on the new VR6 Lux model or via 4Motion all-wheel drive on the topline VR6 Executive model, which is also equipped with paddle shifters. Producing 265 lb-ft of torque, the 3.6-liter VR6 offers refined, responsive performance. The EPA estimated fuel economy for the front-wheel-drive VR6 Lux is 17 mpg city and 27 mpg highway; the corresponding numbers for the VR6 4Motion are 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
All 2012 Volkswagen CC Arizona models are equipped with a sport-tuned suspension to satisfy the driver looking for lively, involving handling coupled with a smooth, comfortable ride for daily driving.
Up front, there’s a strut-type suspension with coil springs and telescopic dampers, low-mounted lightweight forged-aluminum control arms, and an anti-roll bar. At the rear, the CC has a compact multilink coil-sprung suspension with upper and lower transverse arms and a longitudinal link on each side to control wheel location.
The rear suspension components are mounted in a subframe made of high-tensile steel to help reduce weight and increase rigidity. The subframe is also acoustically decoupled from CC’s bodyshell to significantly lessen road noise and vibration.
An electro-mechanical, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering system with variable speed assistance helps ensure driver confidence. Advantages of the system include its mild self-centering action, its ability to help compensate for different driving hazards such as crosswinds and steep road cambers as it dispenses with the usual engine-driven pump.
Safety and Security
Safety and security in the CC starts with a strong, rigid, laser-seam-welded bodyshell and crash-optimized, energy-absorbing front end. For those inside, there’s the protection of a suite of airbags that includes front and side airbags from the driver and front seat passenger, and Side Curtain Protection® head airbags for those in both the front and rear seats. Three-point safety belts have belt-force limiters for all the seats.
A number of aids and enhancements work seamlessly with the CC’s drivetrain and suspension to help get the car and its occupants to their destination safely. They include Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), and Engine Braking Assist (EBA).
Every CC also includes the advanced Volkswagen Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard warning lights if the car is involved in certain types of collisions.
And for real peace of mind, the CC, like every Volkswagen, is covered under the no-charge Carefree Maintenance Program. All scheduled maintenance is covered for the length of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty—three years or 36,000 miles, whichever occurs first.
Each 2013 CC model comes exceptionally well-equipped. At launch, there will be five different models: the sporty 2.0T R-Line model will go on sale early in 2013. To learn more about the 2013 Volkswagen CC, visit our new Volkswagen Arizona dealership.
