Volkswagen debuted a new, sport-inspired midsize sedan at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show. The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon Gran Turismo– which carries over the appearances of the Sport Coupe Concept GTE Volkswagen initially shown in 2015– embraces the “four-door coupe” body style with a long hood and raked roofline. And it will offer an effective engine to back up those appearances.
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Trims and Features
3 trims have been confirmed for the Arteon. The base trim will come basic with LED headlamps and taillights, keyless entry and start, an eight-speaker infotainment system with USB input, automated climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and a leather steering wheel with paddle shifters (on DSG-equipped models).
The 2 higher-tier trims will receive 18-inch wheels, special outside accents, heated front seats, and leather and suede upholstery with contrast stitching. The Arteon R-Line will offer a more aggressive look, with an unique steering wheel and bumpers. An Elegance trim will be focused on high-end and provide more chrome outside trim pieces. Extra upgrades will consist of a head-up display screen and an all-new infotainment system with a 9.2-inch touchscreen interface and gesture control.
Volkswagen will also debut numerous security features in the 2019 Arteon. An updated adaptive cruise control system will immediately adjust cruising speed based upon posted speed limits. New adaptive headlamps will anticipate upcoming curves and adjust direction appropriately. The new Emergency Assist system will slow the car down and, if possible, guide on the shoulder needs to the motorist ended up being incapacitated.
The Arteon will have a somewhat longer wheelbase than the comparable size Passat yet have a little less total length thanks to brief front and rear overhangs. This ought to equate into a spacious front seat and excellent rear legroom (although four-door coupes normally do not fare well when it pertains to rear headroom).
2019 Volkswagen Arteon Engine
A variety of engine choices are available, but not all them will make the journey to U.S. shores. A turbocharged 2.0-liter making 188 horse power, powering the front wheels via a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission, will certainly be provided and will be extremely familiar to American customers. A more powerful 276-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, which will come with a seven-speed automatic and all-wheel drive, will be provided in Europe. There’s no word yet whether this hotter engine will be available in the United States, however if exactly what you’re expecting is a proper infant Audi A7 now might be the time to begin a petition or email project.
No diesel choices will be used in this nation. U.S. fuel economy estimates have also not yet been launched.
