Update: Volkswagen Arteon Teased Ahead of Geneva


Volkswagen has teased its upcoming Arteon fastback sedan ahead of its official reveal at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2017. 

The Volkswagen Arteon is a premium fastback sedan that will replace the current CC sedan and will slot in above the Passat. The Arteon draws inspiration from the Sport Coupe GTE Concept revealed in 2015 and Volkswagen has released teaser images ahead of the Arteon's big reveal at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Arteon is likely to be the successor to the CC range.

Last year, Volkswagen released a sketch of the Arteon as well as a video showing the Arteon coming to life on paper. The Arteon’s sporty design is seen in its sloping roofline and large wheels filling its arches. Much like the Sport Coupe GTE Concept, the Arteon wears a large horizontal-bar grille leading into its striking LED headlight design. The Arteon will also feature frameless windows and a top-hinged boot lid, much like the Audi A7.

Volkswagen says that the Arteon will exhibit “an interior architecture which is exceptionally spacious – with ample head and leg room at all seats.” Furthermore, the Arteon will feature advanced driver assistance systems typically seen on high-end luxury cars.

The Arteon will reportedly be based on the versatile MQB platform and petrol, diesel and electrified powertrains are therefore likely. You can expect more information on the Arteon to be revealed at the Geneva Motor Show soon, so stay tuned!

For now though, watch the video below to see how the Arteon came to life, on paper that is.
