- The Arteon will be replacing the CC sedan in VW line-up
- It will be built on VW's MQB platform
- It will get the latest driver assistance systems from Volkswagen
The company also says that the Arteon is differently designed than the other cars in its line-up and will have a spacious interior despite the fastback styling. The Arteon will be sharing parts with the Passat as far as interior is concerned and will also get VW's active info display, as an option. VW hasn't revealed any technical specifications for the Arteon but the test mules and the prototypes were using a 2.0 litre TSI engine that churned out about 190 bhp and also a US spec engine that again is a 2.0 litre but produces above 270 bhp. Once the car is launched, VW will be providing more engine options as well. Also, the Arteon will get a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic gearbox as well. The Arteon is said to be using VW's MQB platform which is also used in the Passat and other VW models. Upon launch, the Arteon will go up against the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.
With regards to the name, VW says that the name is a combination of 'art' which is a description of the lines of the car and 'eon' which says that the car is a premium model. The Volkswagen Phideon sold in China also uses a similar naming philosophy. There is no word on whether the Arteon will make it to India or not.
