With the coupe-styled 4-door sedans gaining popularity, VW tried out the idea first with the Passat CC in 2008. Ten years later it replaced the CC with an upmarket and more luxurious Arteon.
The Arteon comes with a slightly longer wheelbase than the similar size Passat yet have slightly less overall length thanks to short front and rear overhangs. The car is built on a tried and tested platform which is also used on sibling models like the Audi A3/Audi TT and upcoming Audi Q3, as well as the Volkswagen Passat and upcoming Tiguan. In most of these applications, the platform has been praised for its composure and road manners.
While the styling and proportions usher in a new dimension, the interior has been made with many bin parts. The cabin is a mix of current Passat and VW Golf fittings.
A turbocharged 188hp 2.0-litre powers the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. A more potent 280hp turbocharged four-cylinder with a seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, will be offered in some markets.
Safety features in the Arteon include updated adaptive cruise control system will automatically adjust cruising speed based on posted speed limits. New adaptive headlamps will predict upcoming curves and adjust direction accordingly. The new Emergency Assist system will slow the car down and, if possible, steer on the shoulder should the driver become incapacitated.
The R-line trim adds more luxury features.
