Get ready to lust over the Volkswagen CC's successor at this year's Geneva.
We were disappointed to see the demise of the Volkswagen CC, and have been patiently waiting for its successor to arrive ever since. After some torturous teasing from VW, the wait is nearly over, as the manufacturer has confirmed that we will finally get to see the Volkswagen Arteon in all its glory at the Geneva motor show next month. And if its older sibling is anything to go by, it should be a stunner. From the teaser shots revealed by VW, the Arteon looks like it won't be a drastic deviation from the gorgeous Sport Coupe GTE Concept.
Utilizing Volkswagen's new design language, key features shown include a new front end with LED headlights and daytime running lights merging with chrome-plated crossbars covering the grille. VW says it will also have a "striking shoulder section." Positioned above the Passat, the Arteon is being described as a "premium mid-size" fastback. While we expect the Arteon to have a stunning shape, that doesn't mean there have been any compromises to the interior. VW promises that the Arteon's cabin will be "exceptionally spacious – with ample head and leg room at all seats" which is unusual for a fastback.
The Arteon will also be equipped with an assortment of "the latest generation" driver assistance systems normally reserved for high-end luxury cars. If the final production model looks anything like the Sport Coupe GTE Concept, expect the Arteon to be one of the more attractive automotive offerings at Geneva next month.
