Volkswagen debuted a new, sport-inspired midsize sedan at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show. The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon Gran Turismo– which carries over the looks of the Sport Coupe Concept GTE Volkswagen first displayed in 2015– embraces the “four-door coupe” body style with a long hood and raked roofline. And it will provide an effective engine to support those looks.
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Trims and Features
Three trims have actually been confirmed for the Arteon. The base trim will come basic with LED headlamps and taillights, keyless entry and start, an eight-speaker infotainment system with USB input, automated environment control, power-adjustable front seats, and a leather guiding wheel with paddle shifters (on DSG-equipped models).
The 2 higher-tier trims will get 18-inch wheels, unique outside accents, heated front seats, and leather and suede upholstery with contrast stitching. The Arteon R-Line will use a more aggressive feel and look, with an unique wheel and bumpers. An Elegance trim will be focused on high-end and use more chrome exterior trim pieces. Additional upgrades will include a head-up display screen and an all-new infotainment system with a 9.2-inch touchscreen interface and gesture control.
Volkswagen will also debut a number of security features in the 2019 Arteon. An upgraded adaptive cruise control system will automatically change cruising speed based upon published speed limits. New adaptive headlamps will predict upcoming curves and change direction appropriately. The new Emergency Assist system will slow the car down and, if possible, guide on the shoulder ought to the driver ended up being incapacitated.
The Arteon will have a somewhat longer wheelbase than the similar size Passat yet have somewhat less overall length thanks to short front and rear overhangs. This must equate into a roomy front seat and great rear legroom (although four-door coupes typically don’t fare well when it concerns rear headroom).
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Engine
A variety of engine options are available, but not all them will make the journey to U.S. shores. A turbocharged 2.0-liter making 188 horse power, powering the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automated transmission, will definitely be used and will be very familiar to American consumers. A more potent 276-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, which will come with a seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, will be offered in Europe. There’s no word yet whether this hotter engine will be available in the United States, however if exactly what you’re hoping for is an appropriate infant Audi A7 now may be the time to begin a petition or e-mail project.
No diesel options will be offered in this nation. U.S. fuel economy estimates have likewise not yet been launched.
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Release Date
VW is calling it the Arteon but the version due to reach the United States in mid-2018, as a 2019 model, will possibly be the CC as soon as again. While the CC has actually never been a huge seller here, in the absence of the Phaeton it helps fill the essential flagship sedan function for VW.
