Volkswagen has come up with something very interesting for 2019. It's the all-new Arteon, a four-door that's called a coupe. Why is it a coupe? Well, it's mainly because of the gentle rear roof slope, but it's also because of the overall shape. This peppy model made its debut a while back at the Geneva Auto Show, and it turned many heads. The automaker had been promising a sporty upscale model for several years, and now it's here, or almost here. It's going on sale in the U.S. later in 2018.

Powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and stocked to the roof with agreeable amenities, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is much more than just a flashy mid-size. Its interior is adorned with top-quality materials, and the very latest in high-tech gizmos will please all who drive or ride in this beautiful new sedan (coupe?) from Volkswagen.


The model available in the U.S. is powered by a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine with a total output of 268 horsepower. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is an option, and VW's adaptive damping suspension system will be included on all three trims. Volkswagen promises to deliver a comfortable, composed ride, great acceleration, and superior handling around tight turns. It's not a race-mobile by any stretch of the imagination, but it will certainly have more pep than the other VW sedans currently on the market.

Interior and Features

The 2018 Volkswagen Arteon will be available in five trims, and all will feature a wonderful combination of soft-touch materials and tough plastic trims inside the comfortable cabin. Standard features include heated front seats, leatherette seating surfaces, and an 8-inch screen display. The current version of Volkswagen's App Connect technology will also be included, and this means standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as MirrorLink. The cabin design is similar to the Passat, but the Arteon is slightly longer, and this means plenty of legroom in the rear seating area. Some optional features include ventilated and massaging front seats, the famous Digital Cockpit, and a panoramic sunroof. The uplevel trims will come with leather and suede upholstery.


The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will come with front and front-side airbags, rear airbags, and a rearview camera. This model will also debut a new set of driver assist systems rolled into a single package. The package will include an upgraded adaptive cruise control that automatically responds to road speed limits, adaptive headlamps that correctly sense the tightness of the upcoming turn, and a new emergency assist system. The latter slows the car down in an emergency and even steers it to the shoulder.
