2018 Volkswagen Arteon Premiere- 2017 Geneva Motors Show

The new 2018 Volkswagen Arteon is one of those things which show how the great manufacturer plans future changes in order to follow the market demands but their own capabilities. As the new model, close to the previous one, Arteon represents a worthy successor of the previous CC model from Volkswagen. The name Arteon is actually made from two names – art and e-on which means literally “art which is moving”, which this car surely is.

Exterior

When we look the first scratches of the 2018 Volkswagen Arteon we concluded that Arteon is an elegant car with coupe-like sweeping roofline, with gentler edges and finest lines and angles. As the matter of fact, the shell is shared with Passat, so expect the same body size and base. As we already said, the roofline is flat and lower than on Passat, while spy photos, though with the fully covered car, show impressive front end, cat-like headlights and wide grille with an air intake in the middle. The rear end, on the other side, has not shown much so we have concluded that it will be upgraded in order to prepare Arteon for the market race with the modern competitor, but with recognizable taillights as on many previous Volkswagen models. The main change in design we saw on the side of the car, but being covered, Arteon has not shown much by now.

Engine

The other biggest question is which powertrain manufacturer will put in 2018 Volkswagen Arteon, at least the options for it. All we saw by now says that we should compare this car with the CC model, so the engine is somewhere on that level, too. If we are right, that can be 1.4-liter engine TSI with 218 horsepower paired with the electric engine as the Passat GTE did couple years before. As the matter of fact, there are many similarities with the Sports Coupe Concept GTE, shown in Geneva Car show two years before, with the same changes and hybrid engine model. Based on the MQB platform of the Passat Q8, Arteon has placed the engine in the middle of the vehicle, with the drive sent to the front wheels, and it is supposed to be offered all-wheel drive option, too.
