As the new 2017 VW Arteon gears up to hit the market worldwide over the coming weeks and months, Volkswagen released further details about the deluxe sedan and gave us a bunch of videos as well. The Arteon has been given all it needs to succeed: a cool design, excellent features and equipment, and refined engines.
Engine-wise, the 2017 VW Arteon comes with three turbo direct injection engines at launch: a 206 kW / 280 PS TSI (petrol) engine and two TDI (diesel) engines with 110 kW / 150 PS and 176 kW / 240 PS. Later on there will be added to the range a 1.5 TSI Evo (110 kW / 150 PS with cylinder deactivation) as well a TSI and a TDI engine, each with 140 kW / 190 PS. An automated DSG dual clutch gearbox is standard on most models, and some even come with standard 4MOTION all-wheel drive, depending on the model and market.
There are three trim levels to choose from when it comes to speccing up the 2017 VW Arteon, ‘Arteon’, ‘Elegance’ and ‘R-Line’. Standard kit on all models include LED headlights, innovative progressive steering, Lane Assist lane departure warning system, Front Assist area monitoring with City Emergency Braking, alloy wheels and the Composition Media infotainment system.
Spending more on higher trim will get you awesome features such as Active Info Display (fully digital and configurable instruments), a head-up display, and the Discover Pro infotainment system featuring a 9.2-inch glass screen and gesture control, panoramic roof, three-zone automatic climate control system (Air Care Climatronic with air quality sensor and anti-allergen filter), front massaging seats, steering wheel heating, exclusive ‘Business’ and ‘Top’ special packages, three-colour ambient lighting, adaptive chassis control, 18-, 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels and fine Nappa leather options.
The Arteon slots neatly above the Passat in VW’s range and is, to some extent, the poor man’s Phideon. The official market launch in Europe will take place in mid-June in Germany. Asia, America, Africa and Oceania are set to follow within the next few months.
