Volkswagen is in the process of expanding its lineup with some stylish new models falling under its performance-themed 'R-Line' range.

The latest is the R-Line version of the recently-updated 2013 Volkswagen CC, which is making its official world debut on June 1 at the 2012 Leipzig Auto Show in Germany before heading to U.S. showrooms before the year is out.

Volkswagen’s R-Line models don’t get any serious performance upgrades like the automaker’s R range, which in the U.S. consists solely of the 2012 Golf R model, though there are still a number of items worthy of mentioning.

It misses out on the CC’s V-6 engine and instead comes exclusively with the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Peak output is 200 horsepower and the engine can be matched to either a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch automatic.

Specific R-Line items include an aggressively-styled front bumper with projector-style fog lamps, sporty side sills, tinted tail lamps, custom 18-inch alloy wheels and R-Line badging all ‘round. Inside, there are stainless-steel R-Line scuff plates and paddle-shifters mounted to multifunction steering wheel.

Luxurious goodies include bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing wipers, automatic climate-control, 12-way adjustable heated and powered front seats, a touch-screen interface, an eight-speaker stereo and Bluetooth and iPod connectivity.

While the CC R-Line model won’t be available for sale until later this year, the regular model has been on sale since March and is priced from $30,250. Expect pricing for the new CC R-Line to be announced closer to launch.
