The regular CC is a great looking family sedan - it has one of my favorite interiors. This R-Line might not be worth the $3k cost, but does make it look even better.

I wonder what VW’s sedan are not that appealing to car buyers. I think VW sedan are just trash when you compare the old school version of lancer or mustang versus the latest model of VW sedan.

Of course Volkswagen has the personal touch to create a good sports car like Passat CC R-Line. As I read all the article, they bring up all high class modification on this car and also switching the wheels into sports type and it’s made up of alloy. It also has CCS or the Climate Control System.
