VW Touareg R-Line arrives & Volkswagen cut price of VW CCThu, 24 Jan 2013
Volkswagen has launched the Touareg R-Line in the UK with sporty looks and extra equipment, and cut the price of the VW CC.
A lot of VW’s SUVs – big and small – do conspire to look a bit bland in standard guise, so to give sales a bit of a boost VW is busy rolling out the R-Line option to tart up their cars a bit.
Latest to arrive is the VW Touareg R-Line – Volkswagen’s biggest SUV – which gets the full R-Line makeover with a sporty take on the Touareg’s look by adding new butch bumpers and side skirts, the addition of a set of 20″ Tarragona alloys, R-Line badges – inside and out – and panoramic roof.
Standard kit for the Touareg R-Line includes bi-xenon lights with LED running lights, LED rear lights, keyless, powered tailgate, leather, SatNav with 8″ colour screen, DAB, Bluetooth, Climate and stop-start.
Engine choices for the new Touareg R-Line are the 3.0 litre V6 diesel with either the 204PS engine at £44,025 or 245PS at £45,645, both of which get an eight-speed auto ‘box. VW say the Touareg R-Line gets £4,000 worth of extra equipment for a £750 premium.
At the same time as launching the Touareg R-Line, VW has announced they are cutting the price of the VW CC, with the entry-level CC dropping in price by £470 (now £24,050) and the best-selling CC GT 2.0-litre TDI 140 PS by £1,320 (although you will no longer get Adaptive Chassis Control – it’s now an £850 option).
Both the 2013 Touareg R-Line and the reduced price VW CC ar now on sale at VW’s UK dealers.
