Volkswagen released details of the Euro-spec CC, plus new images of this gorgeous saloon.

The new CC as you know, is not called a PAassat anymore. VW has purified the car’s bloodline and moved it upmarket by giving it a fancier, less sporty, design, and greater build quality and equipments.

In many ways the new CC is like the Phaeton. They’re both fabulous cars, beautifully made and generously equipped with amazing features. But they’re not as popular as their rivals from Stuttgart, Munich and even Ingolstadt.

The grown up CC will go on sale in February 2012 in Germany, then in stages across Europe, America, Russia, China (local version starting in 2013) and all other sales regions relevant to this vehicle class. The car comes with a rich lineup of diesel and petrol engines. All of the diesels (TDI) are equipped with a Stop/Start system and a battery regeneration mode (which recovers braking energy) as standard equipment. All petrol engines also have battery regeneration functionality.

The European six-cylinder version (300 PS) is delivered with DSG and 4MOTION all-wheel drive as standard equipment. In the case of the 280 PS US-CC that also sports all-wheel drive, a torque converter automatic is used. All engines go to work with excellent efficiency: the 140 PS TDI offered in Europe, for example, together with a manual six-speed gearbox consumes just 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 125 g/km CO2); with DSG fuel consumption is 5.3 l/100 km. The 200 PS TSI – a popular engine in America – attains a fuel economy of 21 (City) / 33 mpg (Highway) with manual gearbox and 22 / 31 mpg in the DSG version.

The 2013 CC comes with two individual seats at the back, but you can opt for 3 seats if you need it. Another new option is a brown interior; this includes the dashboard, which coordinates especially well with the also reconfigured wood accents and colours of the leather seats.
