Volkswagen has announced the price list of the 2013 CC R-Line. The R-Line offers even higher level of equipment than standard and GT trims. It also gives the CC a unique styling and appearance.

The R-Line builds on the already generous equipment list of the GT, adding a distinctive R-Line front grille with round fog lights, R-Line front bumper, R-Line logo in the radiator grille, sill extensions, LED daytime running lights and 18" Mallory alloy wheels.  The interior features an R-Line multi-function steering wheel and trim adds a distinctive touch to complete the look.  Despite the additional kit, the R-Line commands a premium of just £650 over the equivalent GT, with prices starting at £29,505.

Two engines will be available with R-Line trim – a 2.0 litre 210HP TSI petrol and a 2.0 litre 177HP TDI with BlueMotion Technology which includes battery regeneration and Stop/Start systems.  Both engines come with a choice of either a 6-speed manual or smooth-shifting DSG gearbox.  The petrol engine returns up to 38.7 mpg UK on the combined cycle, while the manual TDI returns a very frugal 58.9 mpg UK.

The CC R-Line is available to order from Volkswagen Retailers from tomorrow, with first customer deliveries due in late January.
