      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.

      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...

      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).

      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

      So I guess 4 door coupe means tall people bump their head on that curved roofline trying to get in or out of the back seat.

      I like the new CC. Nicer tail lights and DRLs/foglights.

      I think a little paint job on the front grille may solve the problem

      Its the uglification of the VW line-up. Thank goodness for Ford and Hyundai. VW has been hypnotized by the ugly stick.

      I like it and think its a nice improvement. I was never a fan of the rear end and now I am. the tail lights look audi a4 to me?

      a 4 door coup is a segment invented by MB which gets rave reviews. the only problem: only drug dealers, CEO's a public employee union members can afford them. Thus, VW developed the CC as an affordable alternative. It works and has proved to be a good seller if not a home run.

      I have to laugh at everyone saying how horrible the new CC looks. It's always the same thing with every new model in the past 10 years on the Vortex. So many people seem to have so much hate for new models and pine for the previous generation. It never changes.

      Personally, I think the grille is the least attractive part of the styling, just like it's the least attractive part of the new Passat. It does look better in person, but I'm still not a fan of the vertical chrome in the grille. Overall I like the car. It looks like a crisper, more taught version of the current CC with sharper styling lines and shoulders. I'll be interested to see what VW does with the full re-design if they decide to put a little more distance between the Passat and CC.

      Stop with the hyperbole.

      In the recent updates, some vehicles were redesined and some had the new look bolted on.

      Redesigned: Golf, Jetta, Passat.
      Bolted on: Eos, CC, Tiguan, Touraeg.

      The redesigned cars don't look bad. The Passat may be uninspiring but that's what they were looking for.
      The Eos and the CC are just ugly. Why? Because they took a properly designed car (love it or hate it) and simply bolted on the new grill and some angular bits.

      As I've said before, VW needs to go back, and reproduce the older cars. Throwback style. I'd buy one.

      I'm still not sold to the new grill design however the lines are better than the Passat. The original CC is still more inspiring.
