VW Passat CC R-Line LaunchesWed, 16 Dec 2009 00:00:00 -0800
The new VW Passat CC R-Line
So far VW has managed to add an R-Line model to the Golf, Scirocco, Touran, Tiguan, Passat Variant and Touareg and of course to the regular Passat offerings with the Passat R-Line being introduced on the saloon and Estate back in May. And now we get the VW Passat CC R-Line.
Sadly – as with all recent R-Line offerings – we’re not getting power improvements but just a cosmetic job. Still, that seems to be more imprortant to buyers than the power upgrades in these odd times, and we have to admit that the R-Line spec is appealing. It does make VWs look far more purposeful without looking silly, as we found when we recently reviewed the Tiguan R-Line.
The Passat CC R-Line gets R-Line “Mallory” alloy wheels with 235/45 tyres (18″ optional), the usual R-Line badging, front spoiler and side skirts. The rear light lenses also get smoked. Inside the Passat CC R-Line gets Ali tread plates with R-Line logos, multi-function leather wheel and the ubiquitous ‘R’ logos splashed around. You also get a set of fogs and VW’s ‘Park Pilot’ system.
The R-Line option is available across the Passat CC model range and adds around £2,000 to the price.
