In celebration of the 2018 Arteon's launch earlier this month, Volkswagen has released a 94 picture spread of their new premium Gran Turismo. Not only are we treated to the usual exterior and cabin shots, there's even a few close up pictures of the four wheel options and the car's spacious trunk.
Sitting on VW's MQB platform, the Arteon will initially be offered with six petrol and diesel engines. On the petrol side if a 148 horsepower 1.5-litre TSI unit, followed by a 2.0-litre TSI engine tuned to produce 187hp or 276hp depending on the trim. Then there's the 2.0-litre TDI diesel which is offered in 148hp, 187hp and 236hp versions. The most powerful petrol and diesel models will come with 4Motion all-wheel drive as standard.
Buyers will be able to choose from three trim levels once the ordering books are open: Arteon, Arteon R-Line and Arteon Elegance.
No matter the trim, all three will come with a laundry list of standard features including LED headlights and taillights, LED daytime running lights, Keyless Go, stainless steel door tread plates, Composition audio system with eight speakers and auxiliary-USB ports, Driver Alert system and Progressive Steering, an electronically controlled climate system and more.
One level up is the R-Line which focuses on increasing the Arteon's sportiness with high-gloss black front air intakes, leather covered sports steering wheel, Alcantara upholstered heated seats, a set of 18-inch Sebring alloy wheels, bespoke R-Line bumpers, chrome-plated tailpipes, etc.
The Elegance trim is focused on giving the Arteon a more premium feel by adding chrome wing mirror caps, LED taillights with dynamic indicator function, Alcantara upholstered heated seats with contrast stitching, 18-inch Muscat alloys and more.
The Arteon will go on sale in Europe later this year with a U.S. debut to follow. In the meantime, you can view the whole gallery on CarScoops.
