UPDATE 23.02.2017 – First teaser images released
Four months ahead of its world debut at next year’s Geneva Motor show, Volkswagen has provided a first look at its new four-door fastback, the Arteon. It replaces the CC and will be positioned above the Passat in the 2017 model line-up.
With the Arteon, Volkswagen will introduce an expressive, horizontally accentuated brand look (a hint of which was first seen on the new Tiguan). The bars of the radiator grille extend into the front headlights.
The company says that the Arteon name is made up of ‘Art’, which ‘describes the fastback’s harmonious lines and emotionality’. The ‘eon’ ‘identifies it as a premium model.
After its Geneva reveal, the EU launch of the new VW Arteon will follow in summer 2017.
