Volkswagen will debut an updated version of its CC "four-door coupe" at the Los Angeles Auto Show later this month. Officially announced ahead of its live unveiling at the show, the 2013 CC features subtle interior tweaks along with major updates to its front and rear fascias that give the car a new look.

Inside, car shoppers won't notice many changes to the 2013 CC compared to its predecessor, which also received slight tweaks over 2011 versions. According to Volkswagen, the largest update is redesigned climate control switches; though other revisions include an analog clock that replaces the hazard light switch in the center of the sedan's dashboard and extra buttons on either side of its gear lever.

But while interior changes are limited to a few minor tweaks, exterior updates are far more prominent. In back, new LED taillights that mimic the units on the all-new Passat and Jetta are added, replacing the CC's characteristic circular rear lamps. And crisp yet delicate new creases are added to the sedan's rear bumper and trunk lines, providing a slightly more distinctive shape.

In front, the CC undergoes even further changes. The sedan swaps out last year's headlights for boxy new units with LED running lights that mirror the design used on Volkswagen's new Touareg SUV. Also featured is a new grille, styled after Volkswagen's European-market Phaeton luxury sedan, which includes revised upper and lower sections that help underscore the CC's more aggressive new look.

Released in 2008 as a 2009 model, the CC continues to achieve quiet success in bringing some flair to the generally dull midsize sedan segment. Featuring distinctive swoopy styling and just four seats, Volkswagen's "four-door coupe" recorded just over 2,000 sales last month and managed to sell more than 25,000 units since the beginning of the year - figures that will likely be driven higher by updates for the new model year.

We'll be on hand at the Los Angeles International Auto Show later this month when Volkswagen officially pulls the cover off its 2013 CC and announces further details, including its engine sizes, trim levels and possibly even pricing.
