Volkswagen Arteon Makes US Debut at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show


Since receiving its splashy world premiere in Geneva past year, the Volkswagen Arteon has been largely out of the news - this despite the enormous potential of the coupe-style sedan, which will replace the Passat CC and represents VW's return to high-end carmaking. But it also features shorter front and rear overhangs, something that translates into improved interior space.

"The Arteon is Volkswagen's brand shaper", said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen.

With the recent launches of the all-new Atlas and completely redesigned Tiguan, Volkswagen has made it clear it is shifting direction to catch up with the massive explosion of SUV and CUV sales. The Arteon also features frameless side windows for a cleaner appearance, 18- and available 19-inch wheels, and standard LED headlights and taillights.

Inside, the Arteon's longer and wider body means that it offers more interior space than the Passat CC.

Arteon's refined interior combines high-tech features with everyday usability. The 2019 Arteon sports heated front seats with leatherette seating surfaces as standard, and offers available ventilated front seats, massaging driver's seat, driver memory, Nappa leather seating surfaces, and heated rear seats. Keyless access and push-button start come standard, as does an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Safety features include a rear camera, emergency auto braking, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.

Add to that a Dynaudio audi system, panoramic sunroof, power (open and close) trunk as well as a host of drive assist technologies like automatic emergency braking, and you have yourself an inviting and relaxing luxury vehicle.

An adaptive suspension will be standard to give drivers the ability to switch between a more comfortable ride and a firmer, more dynamic character.

The 2019 Arteon will be available in SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels and when it arrives in the third quarter of 2018.
