In this week’s video, we go for a test drive in the refreshed 2013 Volkswagen CC Lux.
In the newest issue of Winding Road, the Subaru STI and Mitsubishi Evo go head to head in a final bout for this generation. Plus, we have lots of other great automotive content this month’s issue.
We think the CC succeeds admirably at this mission. Upon approach the CC looks good, in a classical way. It isn’t quite voluptuous, but it is clearly designed with care rather than appearing to be the byproduct of a cost-engineering exercise. On the inside this feeling repeats itself, especially in the available Euro color combinations. The metalwork is clean, with attractive fit, and the materials are good. As is common on so-called four-door coupes, the rear headroom won’t work for passengers above six feet in height, but otherwise the seating is quite comfortable in the firm Germanic oeuvre.
Volkswagen has released images and info on the refreshed CC. Already a looker, the 2013 CC wears new front and rear fascias, and also features a raft of new standard equipment.
What do $30K sedans tell us about the state of mass-market car-making, circa 2010?
