2013 Volkswagen CC: New Engine and New Name
What you see up there is the facelifted version for the 2013 Volkswagen CC. Yes… no more “VW Passat CC” as Das Auto decided to drop the name “Passat” as the German automaker wants their four-door coupe to be fresh and that is why the 2013 CC undergoes a facelifted program. The next-gen of CC carries more angular design for VW’s style. Can’t wait to see the 2013 Volkswagen CC without the Passat tag? Make sure you attend the 2011 LA Auto Show next week.
Okay, you have read our title right? We already shared that there will be no more “Passat” for the 2013 Volkswagen CC; which means that now we have to bring you about the new engine option. But, before we get there, do you know what other reasons why Das Auto risks not to use the “Passat” name anymore? We suspect it has something to do with the idea of VW Groups wants to be the world’s automaker which delivers so many vehicles globally.
Now, back to our main discussion, the new engine for the 2013 CC. The four-door coupe will no longer powered by the 3.6L V6 engine for the US and North American market. And that is about it. Das Auto doesn’t refer any engine replacement for the 3.6L V6 as they merely said that this kind of engine doesn’t suit to the market conditions there. Don’t worry, we pretty sure that VW is currently working on new engine range which will be unveiled on this month’s LA Auto Show.
