Volkswagen Arteon – New Halo Car Cometh
Good morning, Bob Aldons from Car Business with information about the replacement for VW’s CC. The sleek shape of Volkswagen’s future has a name and it’s not a CC – introducing Arteon. The press release from Ben Wilks of Volkswagen is glaring for one reason – no mention of a diesel power plant, only the 206kw turbo petrol.
Arguably, if you’re a car perv, then perhaps the lack of diesel may be a turnoff. Me? I’m convinced that diesel is a better alternative and even in 140kw guise, is a better option than a pretty hungry petrol engine. However, here’s what Ben had to say.
The official name for the new Volkswagen’s range-topping four-door coupe was released late last night along with a sketch. According to Volkswagen, it’s a new model name for a new halo car, a showcase for the brand’s tech and design.
Appropriately visually captivating, headlights and Volkswagen emblem merge into a new interpretation of the front section, complemented by overt accents including standard 19-inch alloys, frameless windows, Matrix LED Headlights and dynamic scrolling indicators.
“Arteon is going to be synonymous with technology and value too,” says Volkswagen Australia’s General Manager of Marketing and Product Ben Wilks. “It takes the brand to a new level.
“Arteon in every sense surpasses any prestige car around or immediately above its price point. There’s standard kit onboard this Volkswagen the equivalent of which would set you back a great deal more if packaged in a luxury brand car or SUV.
“With our first in Australia head-up display coupled with Active Info dash, you’re looking at the most advanced driver interface to date. With its driver assist systems, Arteon takes a big step toward autonomy.”
Creature comforts include the new 9.2-inch multi-media screen, ventilated front seats and Nappa upholstery. The drivetrain, shared with the range-topping Passat, is the highly-praised 206kW turbo four driven through a six-speed DSG transmission and 4Motion All-Wheel-Drive.
As to the name, ‘Art’ describes the saloon’s lines. ‘Eon’ identifies it as a premium model.
The Arteon will be unveiled in March at Geneva and goes on sale in Australia in October
