"The Arteon combines the design elements of a traditional sports auto with the elegance and space of a fastback", says Klaus Bischoff, head of design for the Volkswagen brand. It is distinguished particularly by its graceful roofline and a character line running alongside the sides, which meet up at the rear spoiler on the trunk, as well as its front and rear LED lights, large chromed grille and frameless, chrome-contoured side windows. The vehicle rides on 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, while 19-inch rims are an upgrade.
The wheelbase is 5-inches longer and it has shorter overhangs than CC to give it that athletic, sport coupe appearance favored by German luxury brands.
The sporty and refined interior features premium materials and includes heated front seats with leatherette surfaces.
Standard features include KESSY keyless access and push-button start, 3-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Volkswagen Car-Net® App-Connect technology that offers compatible smartphone integration with the three major platforms-Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®.

Driver-assistance technologies such as advanced adaptive cruise control (with stop-and-go), semi-automated parking assistance, and a surround-view camera are also available in the Arteon.
