Volkswagen Introduces the Arteon

February 13th, 2018 by

The Car of the 21st Century Has Finally Arrived

The Volkswagen CC was one of the best vehicles on the road during its day – but unfortunately, that day has long since ended. But when you’re replacing a model as popular as that one, you can’t just make changes for the sake of it. Lateral moves don’t get you very far in the automotive industry – as the old saying goes, “go big or go home.”

With that in mind, be prepared to “go home” in style by way of The Arteon – a stylish four-door hatchback that will make you forget about that Volkswagen CC you loved so much almost instantly.

Under The Hood

First thing’s first: if you had to make a list of all the areas where The Arteon truly excels, performance would undoubtedly be right at the top. The vehicle features an impressive turbocharged and intercooled 2.0 litre inline-four, which brings with it an impressive 270 horsepower and 280 foot pounds of torque. All of this represents a pretty substantial increase over the model that this is replacing, the CC. All this, and you get an Aisin eight speed automatic transaxle to call your very own.

Comfort and More

The Arteon also comes with a wide array of features aimed directly at another quality that matters the most: your comfort. You can upgrade to optional 14-way ergo Comfort seats in bold Nappa leather, for example, to provide extra special support to your back during those long car rides.

The multifunction leather steering wheel also lets you control both your vehicle and any connected devices quickly and easily, all without even thinking about taking your hands off the wheel. Additionally, the vehicle offers up to 563 litres of luggage space to call your very own.

The Technology

The Arteon also makes an impressive display in terms of one of the most important factors of any modern vehicle: the technology at the heart of it all. VW’s Head-Up Display makes sure that all key driving information – from speed to traffic signs and other assistance systems – are directly in your field of vision at all times. You also get warning and navigation messages pushed to a display on the windscreen so stunning you’ll need to see it to believe it.

Likewise, The Arteon has a unique “Mobile Phone Preparation Premium” interface that allows the vehicle to access your smartphone’s SIM card both directly via a SIM-card slot or wirelessly thanks to Bluetooth rSAP functionality. This means that you can always guarantee the absolute best reception at all times in the most simple and effective way possible. To top it off, The Arteon’s integrated WLAN (wireless local area network) allows you to tether that cellular connection to up to seven different devices as well.
