Initial facts about the new Arteon1: preview to the virtual world première on June 24th

  • Dynamic four-door fastback to be updated and additionally launched in second body type as the Arteon Shooting Brake
  • Comprehensive upgrade of the model line with new high-tech drives and intelligent comfort and assistance systems 

Wolfsburg (Germany) – The Arteon is Volkswagen’s Gran Turismo – avant-garde, full of energy and efficient. Volkswagen is now giving a first preview towards the new Arteon. Alongside the classic Gran Turismo, a second product line variant will also be available in future as a Shooting Brake. This model is both dynamic and elegant, and impresses with the flexible concept of an estate. Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Group Design and Volkswagen brand’s Design department: “With the Arteon Shooting Brake we have created a new balance between speed, power and space.”

Volkswagen will introduce a major update of the model line for the debut of the two Arteon versions. In the vehicle interior, the Arteon will be given a completely new cockpit environment to match the exclusive charisma of these models. Integrated here: the latest modular infotainment matrix (MIB3) systems to ensure the best possible connectivity. From a technological perspective, the drive range has been re- aligned, too. 

All engines feature high levels of efficiency as well as low emissions and powerful torque. This maximum efficiency is achieved by innovative, future-oriented engine and emissions technologies. Furthermore intelligent assist systems will also be introduced in this avant-garde model line. One example: thanks to “Travel Assist”, highly assisted driving – within the system limits – will be possible in the new Arteon models for the first time if required. Designed particularly with long-distance journeys in mind, these Volkswagen models will take over steering, acceleration and braking up to speeds of 210 km/h – under the control of the driver.

The world première and detailed information about the Arteon and Arteon Shooting Brake will follow in June.
