"The Arteon combines the design elements of a traditional sports vehicle with the elegance and space of a fastback", says Klaus Bischoff, head of design for the Volkswagen brand. Overhangs at the front and rear are shorter than in the CC, and the auto is slightly wider and about the same height by comparison. "Arteon has the style and performance of a luxury Gran Turismo for about the price of a fully loaded midsize sedan". Based on the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) that underlies most of the newly-emerging VW models, the Arteon is over five inches (127 mm) longer than the outgoing CC, at 111.9 inches (2,842.3mm) in length. Arteon's wheelbase is more than 5 inches longer than the CC and also features shorter overhangs. Compared to the CC, Arteon features a more cab-backward design.
The stylish Volkswagen Arteon has a wide and a coupe-like design.
Eye-catching exterior details include a grille that stretches across the width of the sedan's front, curved full LED units, chrome accents, and a "sizeable rear hatch with integrated spoiler".
Arteon is offered with standard 18-inch alloy wheels, though 19s are available. Arteon comes standard with tri-zone automatic climate control and heated leatherette-wrapped thrones for your rump's pleasure.
