VW releases first video with the new Arteon

Article by Christian A., on March 17, 2017

Volkswagen fans have long waited for the introduction of the first VW Arteon at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. And just a few days after, the company launches its first promotional video that has got us wanting more.

In the promotional ad, the Arteon features a chrome grille and LED headlights, with advanced dynamic cornering light, and an easy open trunk with a 563 liter boot capacity that extends to 1,557 liter if the rear seats are folded down. It also comes with an active information display, ranging from a 6.5-inch to 9.2 inch display. In addition, it is equipped with the 3Zone “Air Care Climatronic” that provides users with the perfect temperature, while making sure that it gives off clean and healthy air. Plus, it changes the temperature depending on the conditions outside the car. It also offers predictive cruise control and self-steering emergency assist for a smoother, more efficient ride.

More than that, the Arteon has a simple but elegant design. It has got a horizontal air vent that stretches from one end of the dashboard to the other. With high-quality leather, six-way adjustable seats, and a legroom of about 1,016mm. The higher models even have options to choose from three interior themes - black, dark grey, and a combination of both colours (in different materials and textures), with heated chairs with massage functions, and a panoramic roof deck giving you a better view.

There will be six engine options at the launch - three petrol and three diesel variants ranging from 147 to 276 horsepower. But only two will be available at this June’s launch. These will be the 240 horsepower 2.0 TDI diesel, and the 280 horsepower 2.0 TSI four-cylinder. There are also petrol models that come with a 1.5 liter (entry-level) and a 2.0 liter engine.

Luckily for German residences, Volkswagen is now taking orders and the hatchback will be hitting streets this June. But US residences will have to wait until next year. The new model is expected to cost more or less £30,000 for the base model. It seems like there will be plenty of discussions to be made about the merits of the VW Arteon coupe versus the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe before the VW coupe’s arrival this autumn.

Let us hope that the Volkswagen Arteon lives up to people's expectations. After posting that video that got everybody thrilled, we’re anticipating that it will all be uphill from now for the model.
