Volkswagen continues to expand the line of models created exclusively for China. In a review of the Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake, with photos, price, trim levels and features.
The new wagon Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake. The Arteon liftback has been produced for the third year (in China, the car is offered under the name Volkswagen CC), starting in the summer of 2017. From the very beginning of production, Volkswagen promised to add a station wagon to the model line. However, something did not work out. And here’s a real surprise – the Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake station wagon on the assembly line of a German company in China. At the same time, the cross-wagon was immediately launched into production with increased ground clearance and a crossover body kit around the perimeter of the body.
The Volkswagen Arteon is expanding its range with a more family-friendly wagon variant (Shooting Brake).
The VW Arteon is called in China as Volkswagen CC. The Shooting Brake is just as wide and tall as the original sedan version, with an identical wheelbase too. It has however grown in length, from 4,865 mm (191.5 in) to 4,869 mm (191.7 in). In China, the Arteon will continue to utilize a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline unit, with 186 HP in 330 TSI spec, and 220 HP for the 380 TSI. Both configurations will use a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox, while the German carmaker’s 4MOTION all-wheel drive system is also expected to be available.
The cost of the new Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake wagon in China will be more expensive than the price of the Volkswagen CC liftback, offered for 246.8-301.8 thousand yuan. Buyers of new items are oriented to the price tag of 270 thousand yuan.
A lot of differences between the liftback and station wagon. The body of the Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake has an original front bumper with stylish C-inserts. Chrome décor and lining of unpainted plastic. Massive stern with large LED marker lights and a tailgate with sloping glass with a large-sized spoiler.
The stylish Volkswagen CC Shooting Brake station wagon has a technical part like the Volkswagen CC liftback. A choice of two gasoline 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engines with a 7-speed robot gearbox DCT with two “wet” clutch discs. Front-wheel drive.
The base engine is 2.0 TSI (186 hp 320 Nm) and the more powerful 2.0 TSI (220 hp 350 Nm).
