2013 Volkswagen CC spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

The 2012 Passat may be garnering the majority of our attention over at Volkswagen, but looking ahead, it appears that the swoopier CC is due for a facelift. Unsurprisingly, these camouflaged testers show a front fascia that's more akin to what we see on both the Passat and Jetta. We've always been big fans of the CC's styling, so let's hope that the more sedate front end still translates well onto the sedan's overall shape.

We can expect a slightly revised rear fascia to accompany the changes up front, and new wheel choices will likely be offered for the 2013 model year. The CC's interior will get a slight touching-up, as well. Mum's the word on powertrain options, but we wouldn't be surprised if the 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four and 3.6-liter V6 carry over largely unchanged.

      Well it won't be a 2012. Maybe a 2012.5 because I already own a 2012 CC and other than some minor interior trim changes it is the same as the 2011. Glad I got it before the beak change though.

      The CC was striking (especially for VW) when it first arrived, but I don't think it's a design that will age well. The rear in particular is droopy and reminds me of a 1996 Taurus/Sable. I think the Sonata will also look dated very quickly.

        hahaha, I have always said that the tail lights of the CC resemble the 96 taurus!!!, but I disagree about the overall style. It will age well.

      Any more overhang and they'd have diving boards protruding off either end.

      could they make that front overhang any longer? maybe have it eat into the front door....

      Ugh. The CC is the best looking VW (well at least of the ones we get here in the US). I unfortunately expect them to bland it down with this redesign.

      I'm amazed there are people who thought the CC ever looked good. U-G-L-Y, CC ain't got no alibi.

      I personally HATE the new "corporate" front end. It looks cheap and boring... I used to like Vdubs... Not anymore...

      I agree with Shiftright. VW seems to be doing everything in their power to abandon what made them so special. I looked at the photo and thought "Buick." Sad.
