270 hp VW Arteon Makes American Debut



By: Sebastien Bell
We’re finally getting the Arteon. With its debut at the Chicago Auto Show, we now know a lot more about what the America-spec Arteon will look like.
Thanks to a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine—with which VW fans will no doubt be familiar—the grand coupe will make 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. That power will be funneled (optionally) to all four wheels through a standard 8-speed automatic transmission.
Based on the also familiar MQB platform, the Arteon should be as recognizable behind the wheel as the VW badge.
“The Arteon is Volkswagen’s brand shaper,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region. “This car is the spiritual successor to the CC, but it is bolder and faster. Arteonhas the style and performance of a luxury Gran Turismo for about the price of a fully loaded midsize sedan.”
The new model isn’t just faster but longer, too. Its wheelbase is a full five inches longer than the CC’s (111.9 inches, in total), though its overhangs are shorter, which VW argues gives it better proportions.
Since the Arteon is all about proportions, it also comes standard with 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, full LED headlights, and that low, sloping roofline.
Inside, too, VW has broken the bank. With an available panoramic sunroof, massaging driver’s seat, and Dynaudio sound system, the Arteon will cosset you as you drive.
The Arteon will also be a technical showcase for the brand, with emergency braking, rear traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, an overhead camera, and more active safety features than you can shake a road hazard at.
Despite featuring all the trappings of a luxury car, the Arteon won’t forget where it comes from and comes standard with VW’s 72,000 mile/six-year warranty “People First Warranty.” You pretty much have to buy a Bugatti to get a better warranty.
Arriving in SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trims, VW says the Arteon will arrive in dealerships in the late summer.
No pricing has been announced yet.
