Feb 23, 2017

  • New fastback model is positioned above the Passat
  • Headlamps and radiator grille merge to create completely new front end design
  • Avant-garde Gran Turismo is a stylish entry in the premium mid-size class

Herndon, VA  — The key objective for the designers and developers of the Arteon was to combine avant-garde design with a high level of versatility. This resulted in an interior architecture which is exceptionally spacious, with ample head and legroom for all the seats. This is exceptional for this type of body style.

Key design elements of the Arteon include its completely new front end, in which the LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights merge with the chrome-plated crossbars of the radiator grille and the hood. The car’s remarkable shoulder section is another defining feature of its design.

Other features making their debut in the Arteon include the latest generation of driver assistance systems, features that are typically reserved for luxury automobiles. This unique combination makes the Arteon one of the most attractive products in its segment.
