Volkswagen has released images hinting at the brand’s big Geneva unveiling – the Volkswagen Arteon.

The new car, a four-door fastback, will be revealed at the show on 7th March, and will sit above the Passat in the German maker’s model line-up. Effectively a successor to the CC, the Volkswagen Arteon will aim to take on cars such as the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe.

Volkswagen is currently releasing few details of the car, but does say the Arteon will offer exceptional interior space, ‘extraordinary for this body form’, with ample leg room in front and rear seats.

Distinctive styling

   

From the teaser images the Arteon is clearly a more distinctive car than its Passat CC and CC predecessors, though it does share significant components with the Passat. Notable styling features include a completely new front end with the LED headlamps and daytime running lights merging into the chrome-plated crossbars of the radiator grille and bonnet.

The images also display muscular shoulders, suggesting that the Arteon will have a striking presence.

Volkswagen has not released any details of the Arteon’s powertrains though they are expected to replicate the engine choices of European-specification Passats, and include both front-wheel and all-wheel-drive transmissions.

The brand does say that the car will debut ‘the latest generation of driver assistance systems,’ including ‘features that are typically reserved for luxury automobiles’.

The Volkswagen Arteon is expected on UK sale sometime in the summer of 2017 at prices starting in the region of £28,000.
