VW’s Latest Luxury: the CC
The CC is available to order now, with prices starting at £24,200 for the 1.8 litre petrol engines car, rising to £30,100 for the economical BlueMotion CC GT TDI, which comes as standard with a DSG gearbox.
Essentially, the CC is a replacement for the Passat CC, a much cheaper luxury alternative to the Phaeton.
The CC differs from the Passat CC because it features VW’s new design, which will be rolled out across the whole range in the next few years.
On board, touch screen satellite navigation is included as standard, as is iPod and Bluetooth connectivity, and a digital radio.
Basic Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) are included as standard, too, as are 17 inch alloy wheels and bi-xenon headlights.
If customers move up to the GT trim level, the cheapest of which is £28,285, equipment levels improve further, with the inclusion of heated front seats, full Nappa leather upholstery, three-mode adaptive chassis control, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, 18-inch alloy wheels, front fog lights and heat insulating tinted glass from the B-pillar back.
Other options 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; a rear-view camera; front climate seats with massage function; and an electrically deployed towbar.
VW has started taking orders for the CC, and deliveries will start on April 16th 2012.
