Volkswagen Arteon

Volkswagen is expanding its simulation orbit with the launching of an daring grandma turismo: the new Volkswagen Arteon. Positioned supra the Passat, the agiotage year Arteon is organism revealed to a globose hearing first at the 2017 Hollands External Motive Shew. Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen Nous of Invention: “The Arteon combines the designing elements of a graeco-roman sports car with the elegance and place of a fastback. An vanguard business-class grandmother turismo, it speaks to the nerve and the mind likewise.”

Gran Turismo

Tobias Sühlmann, responsible the VW Arteon’s outside designing, explains: “The acrobatic lines of the Arteon incarnate a extremely operable boilersuit conception. Configuration and part receive commons reason hither in a liberalist way. In line to graeco-roman saloons, the grandma turismo offers more place and flexibleness thanks to its farseeing wheelbase, putsché-like fastback invention and enceinte bum brood.”

The five-seat Arteon is an nonesuch vanguard alternate – a car for multitude who wish a five-door fastback with an effected, graceful conception and imperfect engineering.

Perfect proportions

The new Volkswagen Arteon is based on the Modular Thwartwise Matrix (MQB). Cross stands hither for engines that are transversally mounted in the battlefront. This conformation course creates distance. A yearn wheelbase of 2,841 mm spans the two axes. Consequently, the torso overhangs of the 4,862 mm farsighted fastback modelling are short-change and concise. The Arteon is 1,871 mm all-embracing and 1,427 mm marvelous. These dimensional relationships present genuinely active proportions – a optical start pointedness for Volkswagen designers.

Charismatic Arteon breathes dynamism

One of the near significant conception elements of the magnetic new Arteon is the presence part. Stand-out features admit a cowling that extends a farsighted way advancing and part ended both wings and a grille that encompasses the fomite’s total breadth. The LED headlights and day linear lights, fitted as stock, combining with the chrome-plated cross-bars of the grille and cowling. The termination is a front-end conception that would be a mate eventide for a high-calibre sports car.

Pure sporting doctrine

Intentional in the dash of a sports car are the hit and knock-down berm sections at the backside, the sinewy wings and the flared bike arches supra the up-to-20-inch admixture wheels. Seen in silhouette betwixt the axles is a waist that too follows a complete sports car figure ism.

Passat, Arteon, Phideon

The Volkswagen Arteon takes its post in the Volkswagen simulation reach supra the Passat altogether of the versatile Passat versions sold some the earth. Followers one grade up from the Arteon comes the Phideon that has been particularly highly-developed for Chinaware. The new Volkswagen nan turismo is beingness produced at the German embed in Emden. It is a website with an adjoining sea embrasure – utterly suitable to a car similar the Arteon that volition be launched in much every land in the earth that is relevant to this fomite course. The car launches in mid-June in the German grocery, with progression orders existence interpreted in the offset few European countries start forthwith astern the Volkswagen Arteon’s earth premier in Hollands.

Innovative, economical and perfectly suited to everyday use

The Arteon is reinterpreting the ‘nan turismo’ construct with its combining of vanguard designing, sportsmanlike charisma, heavy tractability and generous distance. Boost aspects that would be considered summation points in any fomite grade admit first-class backside legroom and baggage infinite of 563 to 1,557 litres. On the expert movement, the new Volkswagen impresses with six extremely effective engines (exponent yield reach from 110 kW / 150 PS to 206 kW / 280 PS), front-wheel or all-wheel driving, summation digitalised displays and controls. Promote features admit an Combat-ready Information Exhibit (full digital and programmable instruments), a head-up presentation and the new Key Pro documentary arrangement with a 9.2-inch spyglass screenland and motion mastery.

Interactive assistance systems look ahead

The Arteon’s advanced driver assist and gadget systems peer its vanguard conception. Trey of its new technologies exemplify this. The modish multiplication of Adaptative Sail Ascendance (ACC) now takes into report information such as speeding limits and itinerary entropy and mechanically adjusts drive velocity consequently. Thanks to the sailing scheme’s GPS and route information, the new dynamical cornering lights with prognostic send restraint foretell when a twist is forthcoming and illumine it earlier the driver actively turns into the curve. The endorsement multiplication of Exigency Aid offers more prophylactic: if the driver becomes helpless for wellness reasons, the arrangement not lonesome slows the car pile inside arrangement limits, but now besides steers it into the slacken lane, dealings bum permitting.

Three lines facilitate a high degree of personalisation

2018 Volkswagen Arteon

Scorn its reform-minded conception, the Arteon is a car usable at an attractive terms. On with the high-quality groundwork rendering, the nan turismo testament be usable in two single equipment lines: the ‘Elegance’ and ‘R-Line’. The distinguish says it all. The received constellation of the Volkswagen Arteon Elegance is focussed mainly on bounty family equipment and stylus. The Arteon R-Line, interim, puts sportiness evening more at the pump of the fomite’s conformation – as is distinctive of all Volkswagen R-Line models. Based on the dissimilar orientations of these deuce-ace equipment lines, the fastback example can be individualized extensively. The grasp of optional equipment includes features such as a bird’s-eye inclination/glide sunshine-roof, three-zone machinelike air conditioning (Air Charge Climatronic including air calibre detector and allergen strain), knead seating before, het wheel and two-tone nappa leather home.

The six engines deliver between 150 and 280 PS

The new Arteon is entry with a scope of six turbocharged orchestrate fire shot engines. All of the engines deliver four-spot cylinders. The get-go two superpower levels of the gasolene (TSI) and diesel (TDI) engines are indistinguishable at 110 kW / 150 PS and 140 kW / 190 PS. The almost herculean TSI delivers 206 kW / 280 PS, piece the almost potent TDI produces 176 kW / 240 PS. The groundwork gasoline locomotive, the 1.5 TSI Evo, is a new innovation and, thanks to such features as Dynamic Cylinder Direction (ACT), it is exceptionally effective.

Dual clutch gearbox for all versions

Any of the engines may be combined with an machine-driven three-fold grip gearbox (DSG; demur the 110 kW TSI in Germany that is sole usable with a manual gearbox). For the TSI engines, DSG is criterion for the 140 kW locomotive and supra. In the causa of the TDI, DSG is fitted as banner in the 176 kW reading. The virtually potent TSI and TDI engines besides let 4MOTION all-wheel cause as criterion, patch this is uncommitted as an choice for the 140-kW TDI. All otc models let front-wheel campaign.

High-calibre Volkswagen design

“The Arteon combines the innovation elements of a definitive sports car with the elegance and distance of a fastback. An daring business-class nan turismo that speaks to the mettle and mind similar”, says Klaus Bischoff, Mind of Volkswagen Invention. Tobias Sühlmann, responsible the Volkswagen Arteon’s outside excogitation, explains: “The acrobatic lines of the Arteon incarnate a extremely running boilersuit construct. Shape and routine incur vulgar earth hither in a reformist way. Thanks to its foresightful wheelbase, stretched roofline, takeoveré-style fastback designing and a great ass incubate, this granny turismo provides more distance and flexibleness than ceremonious saloons.”

MQB gives dynamism to car bodywork

The new Arteon sits on the Modular Thwartwise Matrix (MQB). Transversal stands hither for engines that are transversally mounted in the figurehead. This creates place. A longsighted wheelbase of 2,841 mm spans ‘tween the two axes. Consequently, the consistence overhangs of the 4,862 mm farseeing fastback exemplar are shortstop and concise. The Arteon is 1,427 mm high-pitched and 1,871 mm all-inclusive. These dimensional interrelationships have genuinely active proportions – a optical start item for Volkswagen designers.

Design overcomes class barriers

2018 Volkswagen Arteon

Screening the Arteon’s forepart without centering on the details, the outset feeling is that of a active nanna turismo that borders on existence both a sports modelling and a bar – a grandmother turismo. But as presently as the details are considered it becomes crystallize how expressive and lucid, proportionate and accurate the figure is. That is because near designing is no stroke. Instead, it is a mutualism of creativeness, preciseness and a heights degree of handcrafting art. In the pillowcase of a car, thither is the added dispute that breathless ideas likewise pauperization to be industrially executable. In the Arteon, these parameters coalesce into a nanna turismo whose pattern overcomes stratum barriers.

Bonnet like that of a sports car

The boilersuit car excogitation appears to get from the dynamic cowling (with merged refuge mechanics for earthbound security) and the interrelated grillwork. The fact is that in the self-propelling humanity, a cowl that extends terminated the full forepart capable the roll arches is chiefly a boast of definitive sports cars. “It is one of the largest bonnets in the stallion Volkswagen Aggroup”, according to Tobias Sühlmann. The Volkswagen outside couturier explains boost: “It is rattling same that of a sports car. When you clear the cowling you see the rack trapping shells. That is improper for a car of this eccentric.

LEDs and radiator grille merge

All of the contoured lines of the cowl are prolonged to the grille – and contrariwise. The grill, successively, emphasises the substantial breadth of the Volkswagen Arteon in its cross-slats. Thither is no Volkswagen grille that is wider or deeper than the one on this nan turismo – it is the ‘boldness’ of a new Volkswagen propagation. The speed cross-bars envelop the LED headlights, and they simultaneously use exquisitely incorporate LED spark conductors to execute the functions of day working lights and post lights, and, in the top reading, the indicant ignitor procedure. The ignition elements, grille and hood now mannequin one symmetrical whole. The hood, which extends slenderly concluded the LED headlights makes a grand donation towards the superscript qualities of the front-end excogitation. The cowling lip runs ended the headlights patch chronic the lines of the grille encourage into the sides and to the bum of the Arteon. On the sides, the precipitous cowling lines ended the cycle wells spring the Arteon an exceedingly low and sportsmanlike aspect.

Elegant, low, coupé-like

“We bear a occupation”, says Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen Psyche of Pattern, “that runs done the integral car and brings the mass of the Arteon fifty-fifty nigher to the land. This cable starts in the grille at the battlefront and runs flawlessly terminated the slope visibility and into the quarter lights.” On the car’s sides it creates what is known as the persona business. At the backside, it develops into a abrupt tenderloin, which visually reduces the Arteon’s tallness and carries the warm berm department upwardly. Supra this, thither is the longsighted business of windows (known as a DLO – day hatchway) that extends into the C tower. The threshold windows themselves are frameless, patch the DLO is encircled by an graceful chromium-plate chassis. The DLO gives the Arteon an refined, low and putsché-like aspect conjointly the role contrast that runs from the hood backwards into the ass lights.

Shoulder section is athletic and muscular

Viewed from the ass, it is light to see hardly how rife the berm sections of this fastback are. The mesomorphic mannikin stretches to the face and into the behind bodywork. From a slimly idealistic view this produces a behind designing which, in its lines – a takeoveré-shaped greenhouse (cap and spyglass surfaces) on warm flanks – follows the instance of a classical sports car and yet offers the loudness of a patronage form granny turismo. Too creating a muscular icon from this position is the hitting breadth of the Volkswagen Arteon. Creating an manifest innovation at dark are the concise LED backside lights (in the Arteon Elegance and Arteon R-Line they admit a dynamical indicant routine).

Very expressive colours

The styling lines of the Arteon are as accurate as they are dynamical, and they are accentuated by many new outside eubstance colors. These admit the typical hues “Curcuma Chickenhearted”, “Atlantic Amytal” and “Chile Red”. Adjustment in advantageously with the reform-minded fiber of the Arteon is “Curcuma Xanthous”, e.g. – a color elysian by a signified of agility and sunniness, and which accentuates the gaudy fiber of the new granny turismo.

A look back

2018 Volkswagen Arteon

Hollands 2015. Volkswagen reveals the Mutant Putsché Construct GTE. The five-door fastback construct car became a genius of the external motive appearance on the banks of Lake Hollands. Klaus Bischoff aforesaid in Marchland of that twelvemonth: “The Sportsman Takeoveré Construct GTE is another milepost of expressive conception. Remarkably reinvented, from the commencement to the end separatrix. A stylistic orbit. Therein construct car, Volkswagen is not but presenting the designing of a new exemplar, but too initial glimpses of a new era of figure.”

Back to the future

Now, in Borderland 2017, upright 24 months abaft the conception car made its launching, Volkswagen is presenting the product adaptation, the Volkswagen Arteon. Klaus Bischoff again: “The fact that the Arteon has bygone into output with lone minimum pattern changes from the prove car demonstrates Volkswagen’s appetence for founding. Precisely ilk the conception car, the Arteon generates that ‘I neediness it’ notion. As auspicate in 2015, this car does so cross the attack of a new conception era.”

Digital cockpit environment

The houseclean excogitation, highschool story of ergonomic efficiency and legion synergistic interfaces ‘tween thrum and car make a tranquillise, graceful and reformist ambiance in the new Arteon. The synergistic and digitalised interfaces admit optional hi-tech features such as the Combat-ready Information Presentation (amply digitalised instruments) and a head-up exhibit. Volkswagen has highly-developed new documentary systems (6.5 to 9.2 edge). The new top scheme, the Hear Pro, has a tablet-like crank airfoil. It manages its tasks expeditiously, and totally without linear buttons. The 9.2-inch show is too weaponed with visceral motion ascendancy.

The Arteon is reinterpreting the “nanna turismo” conception with its combining of daring figure, card-playing charisma, heavy tractableness and generous spa. Boost aspects that would be considered summation points in any fomite year admit fantabulous bottom legroom and baggage infinite of 563 to 1,557 litres.

Air vent band as a design statement

The way in which a demarcation, intentional as a individual optical whole of the fascia and doorway shoulders, appears to wrapping roughly the fivesome passengers wish a cocoon is improper and alone. The horizontally orientated fascia transitions homogeneously into the battlefront doorway trimness panels. The squad, led by Volkswagen Drumhead of Upcountry Pattern, Tomasz Bachorski, intentional the fascia with a simplified layout that runs in a straightforward contrast with a cleanse and iconic excogitation. The exchange innovation constituent of the splashboard is an forward-looking air outlet – intentional as a operative yet cosmetic factor – that extends crosswise the total breadth of the midland wish a stripe. This belief is realised by okay chromium-plate shave strips on the outlet louvres, which make a ocular tie-in to the cross-bars of the fresh highly-developed Volkswagen Arteon grille.

Elegant ambient lighting

Below the air vent-hole and a ornamental board thither is an exceedingly low-profile ambient kindling discase that continues into the doors. Its wrap-around inflammation essence defines the distance and creates a assuasive and pleasant atmosphere. The inwardness comfort fits in swell with the Arteon’s daring and clean persona. It ascends steeply towards the fascia, as in a sports car, where it meets the clime controls and the up-to-the-minute contemporaries docudrama systems.

Best in class legroom

Before, the driver and figurehead rider welfare from the fantabulous packet provided by the Modular Thwartwise Matrix (MQB); lots of distance is created by the transversally mounted locomotive and the strawman axle that is advancing positioned. The longsighted wheelbase of 2,841 mm is consequently secondhand to make identical roomy agio year adjustment for ass passengers. Regard legroom, e.g.: the design of 1,016 mm attained hither is the better in the militant set. Bottom headway is too fantabulous thanks to the foresightful cap. The sec arse row is equipt with a three-person bum terrace. The two outer ass positions deliver the ocular and ergonomic fibre of case-by-case seating.

Colour & Trim

Sportiness and elegance are the prevailing aspects of the Arteon. The Coloration & Reduce pattern arena has too co-ordinated its survival of materials and colors to these aspects in the home of this nanna turismo. Deuce-ace midland coloration themes (lightlessness, night greyness and a combining of iniquity and sparkle greyness) compeer the reach of outside colors. The atmosphere of the midland either tends toward elegance or sportiness, contingent the configured substantial (material, alcantara and leather) and gloss compounding. Simultaneously, it is advanced: in the Arteon Elegance and Arteon R-Line, a combining of alcantara (kernel gore) and leather (slope bolsters) is victimised. The optional leather national choices for the Volkswagen Arteon Elegance admit 3 two-tone nappa leather interiors. They are the refined gloss combinations “Grigio / Heavyweight Lightlessness”, “Valencia / Behemoth Blacken” and “Mistral / Pig”. The Arteon R-Line employs clean nigrify (“C Dash Colossus Inkiness / Colossus Blackness”) in the optional nappa leather interiors. All nappa leather features sustain counterpoint sewing. The refined stylus elements perpetually look in concord with the jazzy english of the Arteon too. Saint examples of this are the diagonally orientated texture of the optional “Linea Birchen” ok woo passementerie in the Arteon Elegance and the “Eloquent Upgrade” aluminum trimness in the Arteon R-Line – both types of accents are combined with ache “Softly Nigrify” panels in the are of the gist soothe.

Driver assistance systems – interactive technologies look ahead

The Volkswagen Arteon’s advanced driver aid and gismo systems compeer its reform-minded boilersuit conception. Legion technologies are fashioning their launching in the Volkswagen merchandise syllabus via this new grannie turismo.

The new or foster highly-developed systems are:

  • Adaptative Sail Restraint (ACC); the up-to-the-minute propagation now too integrates hurrying limits (camera based) and sailing information into its restraint.
  • Pinch Aid, irregular contemporaries – now the car is too able-bodied to hint mechanically into the decelerate lane (piece simultaneously braking the car to a occlusion), provided that the place permits.
  • Lane Assistance – this lane release exemplary scheme now reacts to former vehicles, such as swerve lorries.
  • Prognosticative cornering lights with prognostic controller – thanks to camera-based info and piloting information (GPS and route information), the crook is already lighted ahead the driver steers into it.
  • Proactive resident tribute scheme (PreCrash) including arse sensors – now too detects vehicles butt and aboard the car.
  • Position Help – this lane cautionary expiration help is in the Arteon; it now activates sooner at 10 km/h rather of the old 30 km/h.
  • Foretoken Serve – this dealings preindication realization scheme now likewise warns the driver when a detected velocity confine is exceeded.
  • Turbocharged high-tech four-cylinder engines with up to 280 PS

    The new Arteon is debut with a reach of six turbocharged engineer fire shot engines. All sustain iv cylinders. The kickoff two ability levels of the gas (TSI) and diesel (TDI) engines are superposable at 110 kW / 150 PS and 140 kW / 190 PS. The nearly herculean TSI delivers 206 kW / 280 PS, spell the well-nigh potent TDI produces 176 kW / 240 PS. The pedestal gasolene locomotive, the 1.5 TSI Evo, is a new conception and thanks to such features as Fighting Cylinder Direction (ACT) it is exceptionally effective.

    DSG for all versions

    Any of the engines may be combined with an machine-driven double hold gearbox (DSG) (exclude the 110 kW TSI in Germany which is alone uncommitted with a manual gearbox). For the TSI engines, DSG is criterion for the 140 kW locomotive and supra. In the causa of the TDI, DSG is fitted as stock in the 176 kW edition. The near hefty TSI and TDI engines likewise bear 4MOTION all-wheel driving as criterion, patch this is uncommitted as an choice for the 140-kW TDI. All former models birth front-wheel effort.

    Overview of gasoline engines for the Arteon:

  • 1.5 TSI Evo, 110 kW / 150 PS, 6-speed / optional 7-speed DSG (DSG for 1.5 TSI Evo not Germany)
  • 2.0 TSI, 140 kW / 190 PS, 7-speed DSG
  • 2.0 TSI, 206 kW / 280 PS, 7-speed DSG positive 4MOTION
  • Overview of diesel engines for the Volkswagen Arteon:

  • 2.0 TDI, 110 kW / 150 PS, 6-speed / optional 7-speed DSG
  • 2.0 TDI, 140 kW / 190 PS, 6-speed / optional 7-speed DSG / optional 4MOTION
  • 2.0 TDI, 176 kW / 240 PS, 7-speed DSG addition 4MOTION
  • Economical gran turismo

    The Arteon volition likewise be a delight to own thanks to its low operational costs. See the Arteon 1.5 TSI and 2.0 TDI with 110 kW: the low full-of-the-moon servicing is not due until the car has been impelled for iii days or 60,000 kilometres. An oil alteration (whippy via splasher indicant) becomes due afterward two geezerhood or 30,000 kilometres. Many of the operational fluids, such as the gearbox oil, persist in the fomite for its full living. It is so no storm that the sticking add care costs terminated the offset iv eld and 60,000 kilometres are less than €200. The car’s policy classifications are too favorable. Fade managers volition thence receive the highly low totality be of possession (TCO) for the Arteon.

    Three lines facilitate a high degree of personalisation

    Contempt its liberal conception, the Arteon is a car uncommitted at an attractive toll. On with the high-quality groundwork rendering, the granny turismo bequeath be usable in two scoop equipment lines: the ‘Elegance’ and ‘R-Line’. The figure says it all. The criterion constellation of the Volkswagen Arteon Elegance is focussed chiefly on bounty category features. The Arteon R-Line, lag, puts sportiness eventide more at the nerve of the fomite’s contour – as is distinctive of all Volkswagen R-Line models. Based on the dissimilar orientations of these trey equipment lines, the fastback simulation can be extensively personalized.
