2018 Volkswagen Arteon Quotes

Volkswagen has released a sketch of its replacement dubbed “ The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon ”. The name, Volkswagen says is derived from art and eon. The “art” part of the name refers to the vehicle’s lines while the “eon” part identifies the sedan as a premium model. However, from the scanty details the automaker has released, it is easy to confuse the sedan for a hatchback or a 4-door coupe due to its slanting rear design.

However, this sports sedan was performed very poorly. Because of that, we can now expect the newly model with the new name, and with a better look. Not only the look will be better, but everything else as well. We can expect the same but stretched version of MQB platform. We don’t have official photos of this model, but we have some photos of GTE concept from the year 2015, on which will be Arteon based. Also, there is a sketch of the latest Arteon model, and some information from the Company, as well as a lot of rumors and speculations.

Positioned above the Passat, the premium class Arteon is being revealed to a global audience for the first time at the 2017 Geneva International Motor Show. Klaus Bischoff, Volkswagen Head of Design: “The Arteon combines the design elements of a classic sports car with the elegance and space of a fastback. An avant-garde business-class gran turismo, it speaks to the heart and the head alike.”

2018 Volkswagen Arteon Changes

The 2018 VW Arteon interior design is at this point even a bigger mystery compared to the exterior design but seems like will be very similar to GTE concept. For the exterior, we have one sketch photo, but for the interior, we don’t have anything except concept images. However, there are some reliable information and rumors. The front seats of this model will be very comfortable and we can expect leather-trimmed as standard upholstery. Also, between the driver and the passenger seat, we can expect a high-sitting center console. We can most likely expect virtual cockpit–style Pro infotainment system with 6.5-inches and optionally big glass 9.2-inches touchscreen(with the voice command) but this info is not officially confirmed.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon Redesign

At the first glance, the sketch looks very appealing, and the exterior design looks so futuristic and sleek. We can definitely see the addition of some style compared to the CC model, and it is notable that this model has increased the length(4.9 inches longer) and stretched wheelbase. It will be sharper and more aggressive compared to its predecessor. When it comes to some details, we know for certain only that this model will use the stretched version of MQB platform.

Also, just like in every newest model from almost every Company, and here we can expect the LED powered headlights, as well as the rest of the lights. The radiator grille will be most likely the same but a bit thinner compared to the CC model. Also, we can see the connection between the headlights and grille. The bonnet of this model will most likely feature curved contour lines. We can also expect vents on the hood, borrowed from the Concept GTE. Unfortunately, this is all that we know about the exterior design, and as soon as Volkswagen release some official photos, we will let you know. New 2018 VW Arteon curb weight is around 3400 lb. Wheels are from 17-inch alloy, 18-inch ‘Muscat’ alloy wheels, 18-inch ‘Sebring’ alloy wheels and 20-inch alloy.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon Specs

Everyone very much hope at the 2018 Volkswagen Arteon release is better than the previous version. So we’ll review the interior, exterior and some other features of the new car in 2018 Volkswagen Arteon. Hopefully review the specifications of this car, can help you in choosing your dream car.

The interior follows the familiar lines of the Passat, only in this case VW has thrown all their latest tech features, including the Active Info Display, as seen in the Golf and of course a range of their latest infotainment systems with a screen size from 6.5 and 9.2 inches in diameter.

The Arteon is reinterpreting the ‘gran turismo’ concept with its combination of avant-garde design, sporty charisma, great flexibility and generous space. Further aspects that would be considered plus points in any vehicle class include excellent rear legroom and luggage space of 563 to 1,557 litres. On the technical front, the new Volkswagen impresses with six highly efficient engines (power output range from 110 kW / 150 PS to 206 kW / 280 PS), front-wheel or all-wheel drive, plus digitalised displays and controls. Further features include an Active Info Display (fully digital and programmable instruments), a head-up display and the new Discover Pro infotainment system with a 9.2-inch glass screen and gesture control.

And because this is a premium model, the Arteon also gets ambient lighting, with a strip running right under the air vent and continuing into the door panels. VW also claims that the interior legroom for the rear passengers is the best in class, thanks to the long wheelbase. The rear bench also offers seating for three, with the two outer seat positions to feature the ergonomic character of individual seats.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon Review

“The Arteon combines the design elements of a classic sports car with the elegance and space of a fastback. An avant-garde business-class gran turismo that speaks to the heart and head alike”, says Klaus Bischoff, Head of Volkswagen Design. Tobias Sühlmann, responsible for the Volkswagen Arteon’s exterior design, explains: “The athletic lines of the Arteon embody a highly functional overall concept. Form and function find common ground here in a progressive way. Thanks to its long wheelbase, stretched roofline, coupé-style fastback design and a large rear hatch, this gran turismo provides more space and flexibility than conventional saloons.”

Likely exterior features will include LED matrix headlamps and it will likely ride on 19-inch alloy wheels. The Arteon also has a curved clamshell hood. Its roofline tapers into its hatchback-like rear fascia. This gives the model a rather unique design that shares traditional sedan design with coupe and hatch cues.

All of the contoured lines of the bonnet are extended to the radiator grille – and vice versa. The grille, in turn, emphasises the significant width of the Volkswagen Arteon in its cross-slats. There is no Volkswagen radiator grille that is wider or deeper than the one on this gran turismo – it is the ‘face’ of a new Volkswagen generation. The upper cross-bars enclose the LED headlights, and they simultaneously use finely integrated LED light conductors to perform the functions of daytime running lights and position lights, and, in the top version, the indicator light function. The lighting elements, radiator grille and bonnet now form one harmonious unit. The bonnet, which extends slightly over the LED headlights makes a tremendous contribution towards the superior qualities of the front-end design. The bonnet lip runs over the headlights while continuing the lines of the radiator grille further into the sides and to the rear of the Arteon. On the sides, the sharp bonnet lines over the wheel wells give the Arteon an extremely low and sporty look.

2018 Volkswagen Arteon Engine

Given VW’s lead in the global rush to small hard-working engines, it’s no surprise that the Arteon’s initial power source will be a TSI 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged to produce about 270 horsepower. Customer feedback from today’s dual-clutch-automatic-equipped VW CC says that such transmissions lack the expected roll-off smoothness. For that reason, the Arteon’s trusty TSI engine will be teamed solely with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic supplied by Aisin. That gearbox behaved impeccably in Africa. In lieu of a manual alternative (last available in the 2016 CC), we at least get steering-wheel paddles, a console shifter offering a manual mode, and a gear indicator in the instrument cluster.

Globally, the Arteon will get three gas and four diesel four-cylinder engine options, manual and DSG transmission offerings, and the option of 4Motion all-wheel drive when it goes on sale next summer. North America will have to wait until late 2017 or early 2018, and we’ll only get the increasingly common EA888 2.0-liter TSI four in a 276-hp/280-lb-ft state of tune hitched to a six-speed Aisin torque-converter automatic with front- or all-wheel drive.

Although the Arteon exterior borrows much from the Sport Coupe GTE, I don’t expect the model too borrow its drive-train.  VW has confirmed that the Arteon will have a 2.0 L, 4-cylinder turbocharged mill that produces 276 horses. This is the most potent engine on the Passat lineup and it is also used on the Skoda Superb. The engine will be mated with a 6-speed DSG as well as a 4Motion AWD system.

Sharing that opinion with the VW engineers lit them up. One advised that this iteration of MQB is not only compatible with V-6 engines, one such car in the African test fleet had already topped 300 km/h (186 mph). While we were tempted to pummel this fellow about the head and shoulders for not including that Arteon on our drive, we restrained ourselves in the interests of decorum. U.S.-spec Arteon speed limiters will cap the fun at 155 mph.

The new Arteon is launching with a range of six turbocharged direct fuel injection engines. All have four cylinders. The first two power levels of the petrol (TSI) and diesel (TDI) engines are identical at 110 kW / 150 PS and 140 kW / 190 PS. The most powerful TSI delivers 206 kW / 280 PS, while the most powerful TDI produces 176 kW / 240 PS. The base petrol engine, the 1.5 TSI Evo, is a new design and thanks to such features as Active Cylinder Management (ACT) it is exceptionally efficient.
