VW CC R-Line model introduced, available now from £29,505

The VW CC four-door coupe is now available as a new R-Line model.

Based on the existing GT grade, the R-Line adds extra styling kit for a premium of £650.

The CC R-Line includes a sportier front bumper and grille with R-Line badging, round fog lights, LED daytime running lights, sill extensions and 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels.

Inside, R-Line trim and multi-function steering wheel complete the upgrades.

Two engines are available: a 2.0-litre TSI petrol with 210PS, or a 2.0-litre TDI diesel with 177PS.

Both are available with either six-speed manual or dual-clutch DSG gearboxes.

In manual guise, the petrol model returns 38.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of 169 g/km, while the diesel records 54.3 mpg and 137 g/km.

Both CC R-Line models are available to order now, priced from £29,505 for the petrol and £30,045 for the diesel.
