We got a look at the updated Passat at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month and for the Chicago Auto Show VW is pulling the wraps off the Arteon, the replacement for its coupe-like CC sedan.

"The Arteon combines the design elements of a traditional sports auto with the elegance and space of a fastback", says Klaus Bischoff, head of design for the Volkswagen brand. Based off the award-winning MQB platform, the newest Volkswagen flagship offers a sleek fastback design, an upscale interior, innovative technology, and available 4Motion® all-wheel drive. Longer and wider than the CC, the Arteon adds more than 5 inches to its wheelbase.
