Volkswagen debuted a new, sport-inspired midsize sedan at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show. The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon Gran Turismo– which rollovers the looks of the Sport Coupe Concept GTE Volkswagen initially displayed in 2015– accepts the “four-door coupe” body design with a long hood and raked roofline. And it will use a powerful engine to support those appearances.
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Trims and Features
Three trims have been validated for the Arteon. The base trim will come basic with LED headlamps and taillights, keyless entry and start, an eight-speaker infotainment system with USB input, automated climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and a leather steering wheel with paddle shifters (on DSG-equipped models).
The 2 higher-tier trims will get 18-inch wheels, special exterior accents, heated front seats, and leather and suede upholstery with contrast stitching. The Arteon R-Line will offer a more aggressive look and feel, with a special steering wheel and bumpers. An Elegance trim will be concentrated on high-end and provide more chrome exterior trim pieces. Extra upgrades will include a head-up screen and a brand new infotainment system with a 9.2-inch touchscreen user interface and gesture control.
Volkswagen will likewise debut numerous security features in the 2019 Arteon. An updated adaptive cruise control system will instantly change travelling speed based upon posted speed limits. New adaptive headlamps will predict upcoming curves and adjust instructions appropriately. The new Emergency Assist system will slow the car down and, if possible, steer on the shoulder must the motorist become incapacitated.
The Arteon will have a somewhat longer wheelbase than the comparable size Passat yet have slightly less total length thanks to brief front and rear overhangs. This need to translate into a roomy front seat and good rear legroom (although four-door coupes normally don’t prosper when it concerns rear headroom).
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Engine
A number of engine options are readily available, however not all of them will make the journey to U.S. shores. A turbocharged 2.0-liter making 188 horse power, powering the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automated transmission, will definitely be provided and will be very familiar to American customers. A more potent 276-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, which will include a seven-speed automated and all-wheel drive, will be offered in Europe. There’s no word yet whether this hotter engine will be offered in the U.S., but if exactly what you’re hoping for is a correct infant Audi A7 now may be the time to start a petition or email campaign. No diesel alternatives will be provided in this nation. U.S. fuel economy estimates have also not yet been launched.
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Release Date
VW is calling it the Arteon however the version due to reach the United States in mid-2018, as a 2019 model, will possibly be the CC when again. While the CC has never ever been a big seller here, in the lack of the Phaeton it helps fill the important flagship sedan role for VW.
