Along with refreshing the midsize sedan for the new model year, Volkswagen added a sporty version to the CC's lineup. The R-Line will start just over $33,000, including a destination fee, when it goes on sale at the end of this year.
Available with the CC's 200-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, the R-Line looks more aggressive than regular CCs thanks to unique bumpers, side skirts and taillights along with a large lower air intake and projector-style chrome-ringed fog lights. Shaded taillights and specific 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels give it a more menacing look.
The R-Line slots in between the base 2.0T trim and 2.0T Sport Plus model. Full 2013 Volkswagen CC pricing is after the jump:
