Time to Check Out the 2013 CC

Will the Passat hit another 10,000 units mark this month after Volkswagen fans feast their eyes on the “Comfort Coupe?”

While it has lower MPG and a higher price tag, the CC sets itself apart in many ways from the Passat, and should no longer be considered one in the same, even though the new front-end redesign looks very familiar.

In addition to the new grill, the CC also gains new, daytime LEDs up front and a different style of LEDs in the rear, making it a bit more sleek looking than the 2012 model. They have also eliminated the rear console, to give passengers more room, or fit a total of 5.

The base model is one of six different  trim levels, but even the lowest-priced Sport PZEV (partial zero emissions vehicle) Sedan comes loaded with features.  Bluetooth, eight-speaker six-CD changer sound system, and heated driver’s seat are just some of the niceties that come standard. Of course it also gets the Volkswagen safety-feature–treatment, and it has already earned a “Top Safety Pick” from IIHS. Aside from the manual transmission, PZEV, there’s the Sport with an automatic.

The Sport Lux versions (auto. and PZEV man.)  get flashier interior, a navigation system, and other upgrades over the non-Lux Sport.  

The CC Lux also has both transmission options, and some of its enhancements include: heated passenger seat, flash memory for the navigation system,  and extra 12-volt ports for all your charging/power needs.

All of the above models come with a 200HP, 4-cylinder 2.0 liter engine, capable of doing 0-60 in 6.5 seconds.  The MPG is estimated at 22 in the city, 35 on the highway.

If you want to up the horses to 280, you can opt for the  3.6 liter VR6. You’ll lose a bit of the MPG, but you’ll gain some vroom. They also throw in true leather seats and voice directions to the navigation.

The last tier gives you the VR6 with 4Motion all-wheel-drive, front and rear parking sensors, a video monitor, and a pumped-up sound system with 10 speakers.

Golf fans can test their R models against the CC R-spec that should come out later this year.
