The long wait is over for the newest offering from German carmaker Volkswagen – the new Volkswagen Arteon. This new four-door grand tourer (gran turismo) is making its global debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.
Subbing in for the Volkswagen CC four-door fastback, the new VW Arteon – in terms of size -- will be slotted above the VW Passat and below the China-only Phideon sedan. Its dimensions are 4,862 mm in length, 1,871 mm in width and 1,427 mm in height as well as a wheelbase of 2,841 mm. This means that the Arteon is around 9.4 cm longer, 4 cm wider and 2.8 cm lower than the Passat.
Its wheelbase is also 5 cm longer than that of the Passat. Although both the Passat and the Arteon are underpinned by the same platform -- Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) – the latter offers more legroom and more cabin space enough to comfortably accommodate up to five occupants.
