Volkswagen Arteon Sales Figures

Volkswagen Arteon

The Volkswagen Arteon is a fastback sedan introduced by the German automaker Volkswagen as a more upscale and stylish alternative within its lineup. First unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, the Arteon succeeded the Volkswagen CC, albeit positioning itself slightly higher in terms of luxury and design.

Volkswagen Arteon Overview

The Volkswagen Arteon is a mid-size fastback that was introduced in 2017. It is based on the Volkswagen CC, but it has a more aggressive and sporty design. The Arteon is characterized by its sleek design, featuring a coupe-like roofline, a wide and prominent grille that merges seamlessly with its LED headlights, and a sculpted body. The interior is equally refined, with high-quality materials, a modern design, and an array of technological features.

The Arteon is based on Volkswagen’s modular transverse matrix (MQB) platform, which underpins many vehicles across the VW Group’s range. Despite its coupe-like silhouette, the Arteon offers a spacious interior and a generously sized boot, courtesy of its long wheelbase.

The Arteon is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It is available with a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Arteon is available in three trim levels: SE, SEL, and SEL Premium. The SE trim comes standard with features like a 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. The SEL trim adds features like a panoramic sunroof, a JBL sound system, and a power-adjustable passenger seat. The SEL Premium trim adds features like a leather interior, a heated steering wheel, and a head-up display.

The Arteon is positioned above the Passat in VW’s lineup, catering to those who want a blend of luxury, style, and performance. It can be seen as Volkswagen’s attempt to bridge the gap between its standard lineup and more premium brands. Reception has generally been positive, with praise directed towards its design, comfort, and features, although it faces competition from both premium and mainstream competitors in the segment.
