Came in hot at the Geneva International Motor Show is the successor of the CC sedan – the Volkswagen Arteon.
The all-new VW sedan needs no close inspection to set itself apart from the CC model. Of note, the Arteon's more aggressive and LED headlights are way different at first glance; most especially its grille, which is made flowing from the headlamps down to the vehicle's bumper.
Additionally, the Arteon features dynamic exterior design, including frameless side windows, GT character lines along its side, and a fastback trim on its rear. This pulls it farther in terms of impressions from the CC.
However, appearance isn't everything the Arteon can boast. With its wide-opening rear gate, access to the 563L luggage area is easy. Even more, the 2,841 mm-wide wheelbase gives the cabin an ample amount of both leg- and head-room for the front and rear seat occupants.
As for its powerplant, the Arteon will be offered in a range of 3 TSI engines and 3 TDI diesel engines, both come with a 4MOTION AWD variant. Of note, a 1.5L engine starts the range for the TSI engine, while the remaining options come in 2.0L (both gasoline and diesel engines). While all TSI powerplant is mated with 7-speed transmission, the TDI has an option of either being mated with a 6-speed or 7-speed gearbox.
All powerplants are in a 4-cylinder setup with direct fuel injection, and will generate power ranging from 150 hp to 280 hp.
