Interesting, VW is making pondering a new performance version of the CC (via). The enhancement is via a new 3 stage turbo that lets you dial in your fuel economy versus performance; nifty idea. On the low end, Eco Mode gives you 222Hp at 33/27 MPG. On the high end, Full Power Mode, gets you 313Hp (they didn’t list MPG though; guessing its not so great.)
The interesting part is that the engine itself is still the venerable 2.0L 4 cylinder that I’m totally enjoying in my ’08 Passat. For me, 200Hp is more than enough for daily driving; probably too much, actually (I’ve accidentally squawked the tires a few times!) but, I’d love to see what Full Power Mode feels like.
