The new Volkswagen CC comes with new front and rear styling and a range of standard equipment that includes Bi-Xenon headlights with the Adaptive Front Lighting System and LED taillights.
The Volkswagen CC will be revealed at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show. Volkswagen will first offer the new CC in Germany in February 2012, then in stages across Europe, America, Russia, China (local version starting in 2013) and all other sales regions relevant to this vehicle class. The 2013 VW CC will go on sale in the spring in the U.S.
The Volkswagen CC will be powered by innovative petrol and diesel direct-injection engines; all of the diesels (TDI) are equipped with a Stop/Start system and battery regeneration mode (for recovering braking energy) as standard. All petrol engines also have battery regeneration functionality. The TDI engines output 103 kW / 140 PS and 125 kW/170 PS.
The petrol engines of the European CC versions develop a sporty 118 kW / 160 PS, 155 kW / 210 PS and 220 kW / 300 PS of power. In the USA, the Volkswagen will once again launch with petrol engines that output 147 kW / 200 PS (TSI) and 206 kW / 280 PS (FSI). All engines go to work with excellent efficiency. A prime example is the 140 PS TDI. Together with a manual six-speed gearbox, its combined fuel consumption is just 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 125 g/km CO 2).
