Sporty four-door coupe will come with a £1000 R-Line package

Volkswagen’s Passat CC R-Line will be made available in the UK next year.

The design package will be available with all of the car’s engines and a VW source revealed the mods are likely to add a £1000 premium to the list price.

R-Line features include 17-inch alloy wheels (18s are optional) equipped with 235/45 tyres, along with a new front spoiler and side skirts. R-Line badging on the sides, new front foglights and smoked rear lights complete the exterior changes.

Inside, the model gets a three-spoke multifunction leather steering wheel, sports seats and climate control.

Sales are set to start in the UK in the second half of 2010.

Re: VW Passat CC R-Line for UK

the car looks nice and great. I like the styling of the car. I also love it that has major upgrades which include alloy wheels, upgraded fog lights, and R-Line badging. I wonder how many are they selling in the market especially that it is reported that additional cost will be added

well i thought this would have been obvious why hasnt sold that well people will not pay full list prices for cars that dont have the audi bmw or merc badge (lets face it these brands are taking over in the premium sector) hence bye bye saab and a lot of people are badge snobs and those that arent are looking for something with discount i.e mondeo insignia vw offer nothing!

I don't know what planet you have been living on but I can't remember the last time I sold a Passat (any model) at full list price, don't be fooled into thinking people pay full list price for 'premium' badges either. Volkswagen have also been offering 0% finance on the Passat CC for the last 6 months and that has been extended to March 2010 - a huge saving if you are borrowing money and allows you to earn a bit of interest on your savings if you aren't. The Passat CC is also much cheaper and better equipped than its 'premium' counterparts too with so far pretty strong residual values. The Passat CC is not a 'core' model for VW, it is a 'niche' offering which means it has as much value for Volkswagen in terms of building brand image as it does in the volumes it sells.

I'd have the CC in a minute and in the past have chosen a SAAB 9-3 as my company wheels in spite of BMs Audis and Mercs being on offer.
