“The athletic lines of the Arteon embody a highly functional overall concept," said Tobias Suhlmann, the exterior designer. "Form and function find common ground here in a progressive way. Thanks to its long wheelbase, stretched roofline, coupe-style fastback design and large rear hatch, this Gran Turismo provides more space and flexibility than conventional sedans."
I definitely agree with Suhlmann in his statement above as the exterior of the VW Arteon just seems to hit a perfect balance. This is one of those few times where there really isn't anything I would change with the actual design of the body. It's not overly aggressive, it's smooth, has great lines, everything looks functional.
It gets even better when you look at the fact that VW has a habit of keeping concepts production-like. They don't get carried away, meaning a lot of what we see here will find its way into production. This will happen similar to the Atlas concept to Atlas production model transition.
Another example is the new Tiguan which shares a good amount of design DNA with the Arteon concept, helping to give confirmation to certain things. At least with the Tiguan we can make an educated decisions for the Arteon.
Alright so after seeing the reviews and what they're all driving, these are exactly what we'll be getting which is a huge two thumbs up to me. Can't wait to skip over to the dealer and see what they're saying about ordering one and what not.
