How and where to place the new VW Arteon? He is the better Passat CC? Is he even on the Phaeton, which VW tried in vain, in the upper class, to poach in the area of Mercedes and Audi? Autodino introduces the new Arteon model and has the facts to back this up.
Since there is no longer the models, the Passat CC and the VW Phaeton, has resulted in the VW model program is necessarily a gap. This is now to be of the Arteon filled.
Of 4.77 meters, is nine inches longer, with 1.87 m, five centimetres wide and 1.45 m three inches flatter the dimensions of the Arteon, in comparison to the Passat a different stature than the couple of inches would suggest. He works with a wheelbase of 2.84 meters and to the CC inspired Silhouette which is much sleeker than both the Passat variants.
So, the width shows him as a member of a higher class.
The Arteon is so wide that he strip in its overall width of 2.13 m for the case of normal highway construction sites with 2.10 m wide driving between the Truck on the right lane.
The Passat was always the universally accepted nice neighbor. And even the “pretty boy” CC did not trigger the storms of enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is not for the Arteon is the correct term. Nevertheless, to Be distinctive, dynamic-looking Design sets it apart from the Wolfsburg served us deliberately as a popular home cooking.
You might like hatchback sedans or not, this is one of the most successful, the player plays with tailgate and cargo space one of the advantages of this concept fully: normal 563 litres of boot space, expandable to a total of 1577 – a value that is some combination of weak appearance. But, who wants to buy such a car because of Luggage space, payload (max 600 kg) or towing capacity (a maximum of 2200 kg)?
It is all about the inner values, the experiences, the ascend’s the Arteon. A Surprise awaits him there. The interior is exactly what defines the brand: a simple, functional design combined with quality materials and well processed.
The operation is little to Ponder. Exactly the right balance between features, which are all controlled by analog switches and controls, and an easy-to-understand menu guidance for the digital control of Infotainment and vehicle features.
Head-up Display and the multi-adjustable and programmable virtual Cockpit can show all your charm and additionally High-Tech atmosphere, if you ordered it.
The Arteon goes first with three turbocharged direct injection engines: one, a 206 kW / 280 PS strong TSI petrol and two TDI Diesel with 110 kW / 150 PS and 176 kW / 240 HP. Three more engines will come later: the newly developed 1.5 TSI Evo with 110 kW / 150 HP (with cylinder deactivation) as well as a TSI and TDI with 140 kW / 190 HP.
All engines can be combined with a dual-clutch gearbox (DSG) (with the exception of The 110-kW TSI in Germany only with a manual transmission). For the TSI, the DSG is 140 kW for standard equipment; in the case of the TDI it is in the 176-kW Version fitted as standard. The 280-horsepower TSI and the 240-HP TDI are generally equipped with Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive. For the 140-kW-TDI, he is available as an option. All other models are front-wheel drive have.
Volkswagen is proud to have the assistance system not only to the group shelf to be gripped, but to have new technologies added. So, the automatic distance control (ACC) account is now also the speed limits, curves, roundabouts, and Junction and adjusts the speed.
The new, dynamic cornering lights detect due to the GPS and road data of the navigation system, when a curve is coming and is already lit before the driver drives it.
The second Generation of the “Emergency Assist” brakes now – should be the driver’s health due to the car not only up to the standstill of the lane, but it distracts the Arteon, if it is the rear traffic permitting, to the far right lane.
Volkswagen wants to offer its Gran Turismo in Europe in three equipment versions: “Arteon”, “Elegance” and “R-Line”. Already in the basic version, for example, LED headlight, progressive steering, lane departure warning system, environment monitoring system, “Front Assist” with City emergency braking function, light-alloy wheels and infotainment system “Composition Media” on Board.
The Elegance relies heavily on an elegant orientation, the R-Line highlights the sportiness and it is seen from the front, the large air intakes according to the type of the Golf R.
The prices for the current engine offerings range from 39 to 675 Euro for a front-wheel drive Arteon TDI SCR with 110 kW / 150 PS and a DSG for 39 675 up-to-the-TDI SCR 4Motion with DSG and 176 kW / 240 HP as Elegance for 51 600 Euro R-Line-for-52 175 Euro.

We drove the Arteon with the most powerful gasoline engine, and experienced with this engine as a pleasant journey sedan with a noticeable slope to Higher, so at higher speeds.
The driving comfort is high, but it would be better felt if the suspension would bring the bumps less loud to be heard.
The consumption of our mostly leisurely Tour through the North German plains was well over eight litres on the highway is sure to be a value to the Dream, but appropriate given the vehicle weight of about 1.8 tons (with two passengers) and 280 HP. (we/ampnet/Sm)(photos: VW/Auto-media portal.Net)
