Chronology
PredecessorVolkswagen CC

The Volkswagen Arteon is a five-door liftback/shooting-brake manufactured by German manufacturer Volkswagen.[1] The Arteon was unveiled on 6 March 2017, at the Geneva Motor Show, and at the Chicago Auto Show for the North American market.[2][3] It is direct successor to the CC, however Volkswagen announced that the Arteon is positioned to be more upmarket than the CC.[4][5] The vehicle is based on the MQB platform.

Launch[edit]

Launched in Europe during 2017, the Arteon is positioned above the Passat, and was heavily based on the 2015 Volkswagen Arteon concept car shown at the Geneva International Motor Show.[6] The Arteon made its debut for the United States at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.[7] Volkswagen delayed the launch in the United States of the Arteon due to unspecified issues with the emissions testing. Vehicles started arriving at dealerships in the US in April 2019.[8] It became available in the Canadian market in spring of 2019.[9]

Model year changes[edit]

2020[edit]

In 2020, the Arteon was given a facelift. New shooting brake bodystyle,[10] plug-in hybrid, and performance Volkswagen R variants[11] were launched. The facelift included a new 10.25in (26 cm) digital instrument panel in front of the driver, and an 8.0in (20 cm) or 9.2in (24 cm) infotainment touchscreens.

Arteon Shooting Brake[edit]

In 2020, a five-door station wagon variant, known as the Arteon Shooting Brake was launched.[12]

Arteon R[edit]

The Arteon R performance model, launched in 2020, featuring Volkswagen's 2.0L turbocharged petrol engine producing 316 bhp and 420 N⋅m (310 lb⋅ft). It will only be available in four-wheel drive through a seven-speed DSG gearbox. 0–100 km/h time (0–62 mph) is around five seconds. The Arteon R is available in both liftback and shooting-brake variants.[13]

eHybrid[edit]

In 2020, a plug-in hybrid of both the Arteon and Arteon Shooting Brake was launched, known as the eHybrid. Available with only the 2.0L petrol engine, it offers an electric-only range of 34 miles, and a combined output of 215 bhp.[14]

Production[edit]

The Arteon is built in Emden, Lower Saxony, Germany.[15] A version for the Chinese market, called the CC, is built in Changchun, China. The Arteon is based on Volkswagen's modular MQB platform.

Engines[edit]

In Europe, the Arteon initially featured three turbo direct injection engines at launch: a 2.0L 280PS TSI petrol engine and two diesel engines with 150PS and 240PS. Three additional engines were introduced shortly after, the 1.5L TSI Evo petrol engine with 150PS, as well a petrol and a diesel engine, both with 190PS.[16]

In the United States, it was available in three trims — SE, SEL, and Premium — with one engine: all Arteons of 2019 will have Volkswagen's workhorse 2.0 litre turbo four, tuned to produce 268 hp and 258 lb ft of torque. Power is managed by an eight speed automatic transmission, with the choice of front or all wheel drive.[17]

Safety[edit]

The Arteon can be fitted with an optional safety system called Emergency Assist 2.0, and it takes advantage of four existing Volkswagen safety programs: Adaptive Cruise Control, Side Assist, Lane Assist and Park Assist. The Arteon will notice if a driver has not touched the accelerator, brakes or steering wheel for a certain length of time, and it will attempt to alert the person with sounds, visual cues and even a physical brake tap. If that does not work, Emergency Assist 2.0 takes over: the car's hazard lights switch on and it steers itself to a safe nearside lane. The system uses Lane Assist to recognize lines on the road and Park Assist to actually steer the car. Radar detection via Adaptive Cruise Control and Side Assist helps ensure the Arteon will not hit any other vehicles.[21]
