Volkswagen revealed price of its new cheap alternative to Mercedes CLS, the 2013 CC R-Line. The R-line is a sportier version of the CC, and starting from $32,195, it costs about 1500 bucks more than a basic Sport model, and about 10 grand less than the top of the line VR6 4Motion Executive version.
What the R-Line adds to the CC include an aggressive front end that incorporates a large lower air intake and projector-style foglights, side skirts, and R-Line badging, plus a set of 18-inch “Mallory” aluminum-alloy wheels, and stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates. It also gets the RNS 315 navigation system.
That is about it for the R-Line package. The power comes form a 2.0 liter turbocharged and direct-injected TSI four-cylinder engine, developing 200 horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque, delivered to the front wheels via either a sixspeed manual or a dual-clutch DSG auto with paddle shifters.
standard equipment on all CC models include Bi-Xenon headlights; LED taillights; LED license-plate illumination; rain-sensing windshield wipers; Climatronic automatic dual-zone climate control; heated 12-way power front seats; touchscreen Premium VIII sound system with HD Radio, eight speakers, and a six-disc CD changer; Bluetooth technology; iPod connectivity; V-Tex leatherette seating surfaces; and matte chrome interior trim.
