2012 VW launches at AMI

2012-06-04 12:50

Volkswagen used the Auto Mobil International show in Leipzig, Germany, to show off four new models - the CC R-Line, Scirocco GTS and Beetle and CrossPolo special editions.

 

Volkswagen's CC and Passat are now available with an R-Line package to, the automaker says, "complement and enhance the dynamic sporty body design of our top models".

The Touareg was the first model to be offered with the R-Line Package in 2012.

Volkswagen CC
With the R-Line package, VW's flagship CC sedan gets a redesigned front bumper complete with vertical chromed bars painted in gleaming black and bottom radiator grille. Individualised side sills, 18" alloy rimss (five double spokes) and a further chromed element integrated into the cover above the fog lights complete the exterior package.

The radiator grille is adorned with an R-Line logo.

The CC is characterised on the inside by door tread plates with R-Line lettering and a leather sports steering wheel with multifunction controls and R-Line logo on the middle spoke. The R-Line package costs R12 250 (2.0 TDI with BlueMotion Technology) and R10 200 (2.0 TSI and 3.6 FSI V6).

Passat
For the Passat, the R-Line package adds new front and rear bumpers in R-design to create sporty accents. In front, the attention is drawn to the large cooling air inlet and integrated fog lights. Integrated in the radiator grille is an R-line logo.

At the rear, there is a diffuser styled in black. Just as dynamic in appearance is the harmoniously integrated rear spoiler. Side sills painted in the body colour add presence to the side profile which is further enhanced by the 17" alloy rims.

The R-Line package is available in the Passat model range for R10 200.
