Volkswagen is enhancing the appeal of more of its core models with the debut this month of a number of eye-catching special editions.
Available to order now the new cars share the attractive qualities of enhanced styling, a richer mix of equipment and keen value for money as the brand underlines the allure of some of its most charismatic creations.
Kicking off the latest range upgrades is the new Look up! – open for order now and based on the already popular Move up!. The 1.0-litre 60 PS three-door Look up! is offered with sporty 15-inch Fortaleza alloy wheels, unique interior trim, black wing mirror casings and black foil decals.
Available in a range of prominent colours – Saturn Yellow, Tornado Red or Pure White – the new model adds almost £1,000-worth of extra equipment and styling features for its £9,995 price (RRP OTR), an increase of just £70 over the price of the standard Move up! model.
Svelte Volkswagen CC Black Editions boost value
Two new Volkswagen CC Black Edition model trims, both with extra style and value, are also making their UK Retailer debuts this month.
The Volkswagen CC GT Black Edition and CC R-Line Black Edition both feature generous extra specification and styling enhancements to build on the already comfortable and stylish CC GT and CC R-Line.
The new Black Edition versions add a styling pack with black front grille, electric tilting sunroof, and 18-inch Lakeville alloy wheels on the GT Black Edition and 18-inch Talladega alloy wheels on the R-line Black Edition.
Interior specification includes new Carbon Nappa leather upholstery with carbon fibre-style decorative inserts on front and side doors, plus black piano inserts in the centre console. The new special edition models are priced from £29,150 (RRP OTR) – just £575 more than the current GT and R-Line models.
Striking Scirocco GTS special edition earns its stripes
The stunning new Scirocco GTS has a cool 220 PS as standard, and is available in both manual and DSG transmissions.
Powered by a petrol engine unique to GTS it boasts maximum torque of 350 Nm at just 1,500 rpm; top speeds, where legal, of 153 mph (manual) and 152 mph (DSG); and, for both the manual and DSG variants, an acceleration time from 0 to 62mph of only 6.5 seconds.
The GTS shares the Scirocco R-Line’s impressive exterior styling kit, adding GTS-specific badging on the front grille and rear tailgate, plus black gloss door mirror casings and 65% tinted rear glass. The car is available in a selection of eye-catching exterior colours: Urano Grey is offered as standard, while optional colours are Flash Red, Pure White, Oryx White, Indium Grey and Deep Black. Each paint colour has specific colour-coordinated GTS decal stripes to bonnet, roof and tailgate.
The interior builds on the R-Line trim with Vienna leather upholstery including GTS logo on front sports seats, and red stitch detail.
Additional styling features inside include piano black dashboard decorative inserts, a specific GTS gearstick with golf ball effect gear knob, seatbelts with two red GTS stripes and chrome side door sill protectors that, again, include the sporty GTS logo.
The Scirocco GTS is priced at £28,195 (RRP OTR) for the 2.0 TSI 220 PS with six-speed manual gearbox, or £29,695 (RRP OTR) for the six-speed DSG version.
Commenting on the latest raft of special edition offerings across the range Volkswagen UK Head of Marketing, Rod McLeod, said: “These attractive new special editions clearly enhance the already strong appeal of some of our most exciting and charismatic models, and I’m sure our customers will be as enthusiastic about their arrival as I am.”
