Traditionally, Volkswagen is known for sports cars of a different kind, the iconic Golf GTI and the FIA WRC world championship winning Polo spring to mind. More recently, the stunningly sporty Arteon has been the one making the headlines. Matching sports performance with sleek design and drawing attention to itself.
The Arteon R-Line sports a 2.0 litre BiTDI engine and is able to go from 0-60 in just 5.2* seconds from a resting start. Simply fire up your launch control and off you go! Performance isn’t just limited to the engine specs, there’s plenty of smart tech behind the scenes.
The advanced assistance system allows you to customise the DDC chassis to suit your driving needs. There is comfort mode for those longer journeys but if you fancy taking a break and heading to the track, Sports + mode will help you take it on comfortably. If you’re somewhere in between those two options, you can customise it to for whatever your needs are at the time.
So that’s sports performance checked off the list but what about how it looks?
The sleek dynamic flowing design starting with the curved wide bonnet and stretching back really does turn heads. Combined with chrome trims, a lower centre of gravity, and a radiator grille that pops out, it really makes the Arteon stand out. Further enhancing performance is the rear spoiler which adds to the smooth aerodynamic lines and reduces rear uplift to further enhance performance. The 18 inch ‘Muscat Black’ alloy wheels add to the sporting look of the Arteon.
Inside you will find ‘Nappa’ leather sports seats with electric 6-way adjustment including lumbar support. Once you’re comfortable and ready, you can customise the interior ambience for your journey. The centre touch Discover Navigation touchscreen allows you to combine the practicalities of driving with the functionality of customised performance.
So why should you care about the Arteon?
Practicality, design and performance make the Arteon R-Line a sports coupé that can handle everyday tasks and look great in the process. Then when you need the performance it can step-up and deliver what is needed while providing comfort in the process.
You could even go as far to suggest that the Arteon is an avant-garde Gran Turismo. A sporty coupé to suit all your needs. See it in action for yourself:
