      Volkswagen's stylish "four-door coupe" is the final vehicle in VW's lineup to get a design refresh bringing it more in line with the rest of the new design language that has been rolling out over the last four years. Exterior sheet metal looks to be the same, but with new grill treatment, new bumpers, new headlamps and new tail lamps. Inside there are new door panels on the interior and a few other updates here and there. Feature and model lineup changes specific to the U.S. market will be released closer to launch in the Spring of 2012. The new updated CC will be shown for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 16th, 2011.

      Agree.........very similar to the new Passats grill, which I don't care for either. Other than that, like how the car looks

      Rear end is a vast improvement ...the front, not so much.

      Maybe it's just my monitor but it sure reminds me of the Cadillac Caterra from the 90s.

      The new jetta, passat, and now the CC seem to have no chin at all. Whatever aggression that the CC had from the front seems lost.

      Curious as to what an R-Line model would look like. I think a grill swap might make a big difference.

      I like it. I think it's an improvement over the current one. Now, if they could just get the front wheels pushed a little more towards the corners, and offer it in a 2.0t AWD, I'd buy one.

      I don't like the front grille... Plus by the time it gets states side, based on recent VW track record, I am sure we will lose the the HIDS, get the el-cheapo (RNS-315) instead of the real thing (RNS-510)

      From the back, the car is really amazing... As well as the interior...

      it looks like a Chrysler humped a (Ford-designed) Jaguar

      Waiting to see one in the metal, but first impression is that this could have been a lot worse. Wonder where the price is going, and does it now seat 5? Maybe it'll end up as the "German" alternative to the "American" Passat.

      I don't understand Volkswagen's new front end design on their latest cars.

      They need to recruit the Audi designers. The new Audi front ends scream "Here comes an aggressive and bad-azz German piece of art and machinery."

      I'll start saving now for an Audi! Unless Volkswagen goes 90210 and gets a much needed nose job!

      I was hoping to see what this refreshlooked like before the Golf R arrived. Now that it's finally here I think I'll go with the Golf R. The CC lost its agressive styling, and I bet that an R version will be like 2 years down the road. Overall I like it, but that front grill and lack of shin is>

      Oh well... The R will have what the CC will lack --> 2.0T AWD Navi and room for 5 (kinda).

      VW fixed the ass, but messes up the front.

      I can't wait to trade on my 2.0t 6m cc for one of these hopefully with some more features. I like the look think it will look more agressive in person. I hope for 4 motion navi vented seats and hid's with a manual tranny
