The VW Arteon
Three months ahead of its world premiere, Volkswagen is providing a first look at the fascinating contours of its new top saloon, the Arteon.
The totally new model sits above the Passat and emphasises emotionality in the upper mid-class.
Volkswagen is also introducing with the Arteon a highly expressive, horizontally accentuated brand look.
The bars of the radiator grille extend here into the three-dimensional front headlights, while LED lighting elements additionally emphasise the striking layout and demonstrate dominance.
The four-door saloon impresses both through revolutionary design and great practical value in use.
While the doors' frameless windows reflect the typical stylistic elements of a grand tourer, the top-hinged and wide-opening tailgate provides optimum access to the huge boot.
The name Arteon – with the emphasis put on the first syllable – is made up of two component parts: 'Art' describes the saloon's harmonious lines and emotionality.
The ending 'eon' identifies it, in the same way as Volkswagen's top model for the Chinese market, the PHIDEON, as a premium model.
The new Arteon is being publicly unveiled for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show. Its launch will follow in Summer 2017.
