Well over a year since the introduction of the updated and renamed CC sports sedan, Volkswagen announced the launch of the new R-Line editions in the UK. The German brand’s dealerships will begin accepting orders from tomorrow, November 8, but customers will have to wait until late January for delivery.
The R-Line grade builds on the equipment list of the GT, adding a different front R-Line front grille with round fog lights, R-Line front bumper, R-Line logo in the radiator grille, sill extensions, LED daytime running lights and 18-inch ‘Mallory’ alloy wheels on the outside, and R-Line multi-function steering wheel and trim on the inside.
The difference in price with the GT is +£650, with prices for the R-Line beginning at £29,505
VW will offer the R-Line with two engines, a 207hp (210PS) 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol and a 175hp (177PS) 2.0-liter turbo diesel BlueMotion Technology which includes battery regeneration and Stop/Start systems. Both powerplants can be had with either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch DSG gearbox.
