2019 Volkswagen Arteon
Coupe Design, Sedan Space
The all-new 2019 Arteon is based off the award-winning MQB platform, the newest Volkswagen flagship offers a sleek fastback design, an upscale interior, innovative technology, and available 4Motion® all-wheel drive.
The Arteon is based on Volkswagen’s Modular Transverse Matrix architecture, which allows for a more cab-backward design, giving Arteon a completely different look than the outgoing CC. Arteon’s wheelbase is more than 5 inches longer than the CC — 111.9 inches compared to 106.7 inches — and is paired with shorter overhangs for more dynamic proportions. Arteon is longer and wider as well, translating into
more interior space.
Arteon’s refined interior combines high-tech features with everyday usability. Premium materials throughout and trapezoidal design elements give the vehicle an upscale, yet modern feel. 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.
Standard features include KESSY keyless access and push-button start, 3-zone Climatronic automatic climate control, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect technology that offers compatible smartphone integration with the three major platforms — Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.
The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is available, offering drivers a reconfigurable display of key data and the ability to position navigation data front and center for easy viewing. Other available features include Volkswagen Car-Net connected vehicle services; Dynaudio premium audio; a panoramic sunroof; and a power trunk with Easy Open and Close, which allows drivers to walk up to the vehicle with keys in a pocket or purse and simply kick a foot under the rear bumper to pop the trunklid. Closing the trunk only requires a touch of the button.
Arteon offers a comprehensive suite of available driver assistance technology. A rearview camera is standard, along with Forward Collision Warning and Autonomous Emergency Braking, and Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Traffic Alert. Available driver assistance features include: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go; active Lane Departure Warning; High Beam Control; Parking Steering Assistant including Park Distance Control; and Overhead View Camera.
The new Arteon will be powered by Volkswagen’s 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® engine, making 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The power is taken to the front wheels via a standard eight-speed automatic transmission; 4Motion® all-wheel drive is available on every trim level. Arteon features a standard DCC® adaptive damping system, which manages the suspension’s rebound and compression rates individually, helping to improve vehicle dynamics, and a standard Start-Stop system designed to help improve fuel efficiency.
