Rounding out the R-Line design are a set of 17 inch "Mallory" alloy wheels, with 18 inch R-Line rollers available as an option. Upgrading the Comfort Coupe’s luxurious interior, Volkswagen has added a host of customized aluminum kick plates complete with engraved R-Line Logo as well as a sports inspired three spoke leather trimmed multifunction steering wheel. With the new Passat CC R-Line, VW is taking their most stylish full size car to date and injects a healthy helping of fun, giving the CC a whole new attitude.
Press release after the jump.
R-Line equipment is already offered on seven Volkswagen models. Now the Passat CC is getting a sportier touch. Orders are now being taken for the four-door coupé with R-Line package.
On its exterior, 17-inch (optional 18-inch) R-Line "Mallory" alloy wheels with 235/45 tyres lend a sporty touch to the Passat CC R-Line. The front spoiler and side skirts, each painted in body colour, were also re-styled. In addition, R-Line logos embellish the front side sections; the rear lights are smoked.
Inside the Passat CC R-Line, standard features include details like four customised tread plates in aluminium (with R-Line Logo in front) and a three-spoke leather-trimmed steering wheel with multifunction keys. The R-Line package has front fog lights and the Park Pilot system. The Passat R-Line leaves few wishes unfulfilled; even the base version of the Passat CC includes comfort and convenience features like sport seats and a climate control system.
The R-Line package is available with all Passat CC engines. Prices start at 2,200 Euros for the Passat CC 2.0 TDI (140 PS / 103 kW) with a 6-speed gearbox. Counting versions already introduced on the Golf, Scirocco, Touran, Tiguan, Passat, Passat Variant and Touareg, a total of eight models with R-Line equipment are now on the market.
