Sports coupe meets luxury sedan to create high-performance art.
It's not every day that a car blurs the lines between sedan and coupe. With the Arteon, Volkswagen combines space and comfort with sharp design and performance. The result? A gran turismo like no other.
The car features elegant lines and a sleek profile with ample cabin and boot space, thrilling performance with a high power output of 280 PS, and superb grip thanks to the 4MOTION permanent all-wheel drive system. It all comes together in a perfect blend of performance, luxury and design in the Arteon.
A new era of design for Volkswagen cars.
The Arteon is eye-catching from every angle. From the front, the lines of its signature wide radiator grille flow seamlessly into dual LED headlights, while a large clamshell bonnet extends over the entire front end right up to the wheel arches - much like a sports coupe. Running across the car's elongated silhouette, a strong character line starts from the radiator grille, stretches under frameless windows and ends as a sharp undercut at the Arteon's rear body work - a design feature that adds to the gran turismo's sleek, lowered profile.
The Arteon also impresses with muscular shoulder sections that flank a large rear hatch. On the inside, there is a class-leading 563 litres of boot volume for anything from golf bags to baby strollers.
Slide into a new level of luxury.
Slip inside the Arteon, and you'll discover a cabin space that envelopes you with elegant design accents and innovative features.
The long wheelbase translates to unparalleled legroom and excellent headroom for both drivers and passengers as they stretch out on sumptuous black 'Nappa' leather seats. Elegant ambient lighting in a choice of 3 colours (blue, white or yellow) runs across the dashboard to all four doors, adding to a soothing driving experience. Look up, and you'll see a panoramic sunroof - perfect for bringing natural light and fresh air into the cabin.
Adding to its sophisticated looks is a plethora of innovative features. The Active Info Display gives drivers a customisable digital instrument cluster, while the 9.2-inch Discover Pro infotainment system includes gesture control that lets you navigate pages with a simple swipe of the hand.
There's also the assurance of safety, with assistance systems such as Front Assist with City Emergency Brake, Side Assist, Area View, and an updated proactive occupant protection system. These are innovations that have been tested and proven - the Arteon comes with the highest 5-star safety rating from the Euro NCAP crash test series, one of the most comprehensive and stringent safety test standards in the industry.
A powerful engine for thrilling performance.
The drivetrain of the Arteon has been specifically enhanced to give you a highly-direct and precise steering response, a low roll angle, and excellent driving dynamics. The 2.0-litre turbocharged TSI engine in the Arteon R-Line develops a peak power output of 280 PS, and its maximum torque of 350 Nm is available through a wide engine speed range of 1,700 to 5,600 rpm. This helps propel the Arteon from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds.
