PRESS RELEASE: VOLKSWAGEN UNVEILS NEW CC
Volkswagen's stylish four-door coupe receives major updates for the 2013 Model Year, including freshened front and rear styling
Wolfsburg — When the Volkswagen CC debuted four years ago, it was the first affordably priced four-door coupe on sale in the U.S. What looked at first like a niche has developed into a completely new segment: nearly 270,000 people around the world have bought Volkswagen's sedan that has the looks and heart of a sports car. The CC mixes practicality with style and attainability.
Volkswagen is presenting a technically and visually updated version of the vehicle at the LA Auto Show, held at the LA Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles between November 18 and 27. With new front and rear styling and an extended range of standard equipment that includes Bi-Xenon headlights with the Adaptive Front Lighting System and LED taillights, the new CC makes an even bolder statement in the entry-luxury class. The 2013 Volkswagen CC will go on sale in the Spring in the U.S.
