Volkswagen revealed today how much customers will pay for the stylish R-Line version of its 2013 CC four-door coupe. The 2013 Volkswagen CC R-Line starts at $33,020 (including an $825 destination charge) with a six-speed manual transmission, while versions with a six-speed DSG dual-clutch cost $34,120.
As on all other Volkswagen models, the CC R-Line treatment consists solely of equipment and aesthetic upgrades. Cars so equipped wear 18-inch "Malloy" wheels, a new front fascia with a lower lip and sportier foglight surrounds, stainless-steel door-sill plates, new side skirts, special R-Line badges, and touchscreen navigation. The R-Line package is available only on versions of the 2013 Volkswagen CC equipped with the 200-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four engine.
Those price tags place the R-Line close to the middle of the Volkswagen CC pricing scale. The 2013 CC 2.0T Sport starts at $31,075 (after destination) with a manual transmission or $32,175 with DSG, the 2.0T Sport Plus is $33,675, and the 2.0T Lux requires $36,180. Stepping up to the 280-hp 3.6-liter VR6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission costs $38,555 for the V6 Lux model. The flagship Executive trim, which adds all-wheel drive, costs $42,245.
The rest of the 2013 Volkswagen CC range has been on sale since the spring, but the CC R-Line won't reach Volkswagen dealerships until the end of this year.
