VW Arteon Makes American Debut

Share

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.

He will then hold talks with Sultan Qaboos Bin Said Al Said, who will host a banquet in the visiting dignitary's honour. On February 10 itself, Modi will arrive in the UAE and address the sixth World Government Summit in Dubai.

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will be available in SE, SEL, and SEL Premium trim levels and is expected to arrive at U.S. Volkswagen dealers in the third quarter of 2018. There's the brand's familiar chrome cross-bar grille that tapers into standard LED headlights. The vehicle rides on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, while 19-inch rims are an upgrade. Other features-such as ventilated seats, a massaging driver's seat (surely to make passengers jealous), real Nappa leather, heated rear seats, and a panoramic sunroof-are available if you're willing to be parted from some extra cash.

Arteon is powered by a 2.0-liter TSI turbocharged engine generating 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque, an improvement over the 200-horsepower and 207 lb-ft of torque delivered now in the CC's 4-cylinder. Adaptive Cruise with stop-and-go capability is one of several optional Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.

It's a quote in the O-line room that has stood on the wall for the last five years: 'Hungry dogs run faster'. Foles had stepped in to lead the Eagles to success after Wentz got injured with a torn ACL in December.

Upscale features such as keyless access and push-button start, as well as a three-zone climate control and 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard.

Regardless of trim, Arteon is equipped with a rearview camera, forward collision warning, autonomous emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

The stock market also received a lift from expectations for Trump's economic measures, such as massive tax cuts and deregulation. European markets were also down on Thursday, after the Bank of England said it could raise interest rates in the coming months.

In addition, the 2019 Arteon offers a combination of both passive and active safety systems that are engineered to meet or exceed current crash regulations. The 2017 VW CC starts at just above $35,000, including destination.
