Future of VW Style Coming in All-new Arteon

Combines Luxury Space With Hatchback Versatility

Volkswagen recently unveiled it’s all new flagship sedan, the Arteon, which the company says is the future of the company’s styling philosophy. The design is based on a concept GTE released in 2015 and will replace the CC in the company’s lineup. “The car looks simply great – it arouses emotions and creates desirability,” according to Volkswagen executive Dr. Elmar-Marius Licharz. “Many of the details of the show car have made it into production.” The Arteon will first be released in Europe, then eventually make its way to the United States. Stay in touch with Chapman VW Tucson for an arrival date.

Fastback Design Provides Large Cargo Space

When compared to the CC, the VW Arteon is wider, longer and the sloping fastback design makes room for a real hatchback trunk. With the rear seats folded down, it provides up to 55 cubic feet of cargo space. A shoulder line runs the entire length of the car, delivering both aerodynamic performance and an aggressive look that’s in concert with the Arteon’s sporty nature. Although the engine choices haven’t been announced for the U.S., Europe’s version of the Arteon will offer six potential choices paired with either a seven or six-speed transmission. VW’s 4Motion all-wheel drive will be available, providing greater control on the track and in inclement weather. “It’s the perfect car for people who appreciate great style and great value for money,” according to Licharz. “That is how we are challenging premium car makers without becoming one ourselves.”

No Lack of Technology in Arteon

As you might imagine, a new vehicle in the 21st century will be loaded with modern technology. The Arteon certainly isn’t lacking in that department, featuring VW’s 12.1-inch digital cockpit that works together with a heads-up display to provide vital vehicle information in the driver’s line-of-sight. A 9.2-inch touchscreen powers the navigation, information and entertainment functions of the vehicle, utilizing gesture controls. The new VW Arteon also features an emergency assist system that will engage when the driver is ill or unconscious. It takes over control of the vehicle, moving it to the emergency lane and during on the hazards lights before stopping. Along with the full-size Atlas SUV, the Arteon is another exciting new vehicle coming from this vaunted German automaker. Check in often with Chapman VW Tucson to see when the new sedan will be available for a test drive.
