Volkswagen is launching the new Arteon and the new Arteon Shooting Brake on the market in three equipment lines: Arteon, Elegance and R-Line.
Arteon basic version. At the order launch, the Arteon equipment line will be available in conjunction with a 110 kW (150 PS) turbocharged diesel engine (TDI) and a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox (DSG). Thanks to new twin dosing technology, the TDI engine boasts ground-breakingly low NOx emissions coupled with high efficiency. As standard, the exterior features LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED tail light clusters and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Considerably more exclusive than that of its predecessor, the interior has, for instance, a completely redesigned dash panel including Digital Cockpit Pro (digital instruments), an 8.0-inch Infotainment system with navigation system (Discover Media), and touch sliders for the electronically controlled air conditioning system. Another new feature is the leather multifunction steering wheel. What is more, standard equipment now includes sport comfort seats (at the front) with lumbar support (electronically adjustable on the driver side), cruise control system with speed limiter, and the Keyless Go central locking system.
Elegance and R-Line. The basic version is followed by the enhanced Elegance and R-Line versions. Elegance offers an emphatically sophisticated configuration, while R-Line focuses on dynamics. On the outside, both equipment lines are fitted with their own individual 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights including Light Assist (automatic main-beam control), dynamic turn signal in the LED tail light cluster, and individual front aprons with extra chrome features.
On the inside, the standard equipment is enhanced by seat covers in Alcantara/leather, genuine wood (Elegance) or metal applications (R-Line), aluminium-look pedal caps, and touch islands on the multifunction steering wheel. In addition, both equipment lines are supplied with elements such as driving profile selection, front seat heating and Park Assist (at front and rear).
Volkswagen will gradually launch more engine, gearbox and model variants on the market over the coming months. For the first time in the Arteon, this will include a plug-in hybrid drive whose purely electrical range is large enough for day-to-day distances to be driven with zero local emissions. Furthermore, a new top-of-the-range R model will also be available in both body variants.
