Facelifted Volkswagen CC
New Volkswagen CC to debut in LA
This is the new Volkswagen CC. The four-door coupé version of the VW Passat has now dropped the Passat name, and has been given a new look and even more safety equipment to make it more of a cut-price Mercedes CLS rival than ever.
Making its debut at the Los Angeles Motor Show later this month, sales will start in the UK in January 2012.
At the front, the updated VW CC gets bi-xenon headlights complete with LED daytime running lights, while there’s also a more upmarket chrome grille and a smarter lower bumper.
More heavily scalloped sides are another change, while at the rear the CC’s lights have been swapped to new LEDs. There’s also a larger bumper too. Inside, there’s a new Phaeton-style analogue clock on the dashboard and optional brown trim.
New features aimed at improving safety include fatigue detection – which warns the driver if he or she is nodding off at the wheel. Other gadgets include automatic adjustment for the headlight beams and a system that recognises road signs and displays them on the dashboard. Special seats are available with a massage function too.Read full article
