Volkswagen Arteon unveil confirmed for Geneva Auto Show

Volkswagen confirmed on Thursday that it will officially reveal the Volkswagen Arteon during the Geneva Auto Show, which kicks off March 9th and runs through March 19th.

The new Volkswagen Arteon will sit above the Volkswagen Passat in the company’s family of cars, VW said. It’s expected to replace the Volkswagen CC. New teasers of the car that were published in tandem with Volkswagen’s announcement show a fun yellow color and smooth curves, not too unlike the CC.

“The key objective for the designers and developers of the Arteon was to combine avant-garde design with a high level of versatility,” Volkswagen said on Thursday. “This resulted in an interior architecture which is exceptionally spacious, with ample head and legroom for all the seats. This is exceptional for this type of body style. Key design elements of the Arteon include its completely new front end, in which the LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights merge with the chrome-plated crossbars of the radiator grille and the hood. The car’s remarkable shoulder section is another defining feature of its design.”

Chock full of features

Volkswagen said it expects the Arteon will be “one of the most attractive products in its segment,” and promises it will offer features “typically reserved for luxury automobiles,” including “the latest generation of driver assistance systems.” We’ll know much more about the new VW Arteon next month.
