A Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake Is A Long Shot

There have been some voices within Volkswagen hinting towards a possible shooting brake version of the upcoming Arteon, but how would such a model actually look like?

This is TheophilusChin’s interpretation. His latest rendering basically takes the upcoming four-door coupe and fuses it with some elements from the Passat Estate, while adding a slightly sloping roofline and a clean tailgate along with larger rims and aluminum inserts.

An Arteon Shooting Brake might not come to pass after all, but the production four-door coupe will make its official debut in a couple of months, during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, serving as a replacement for the CC.

It is based on the MQB architecture that is used as a basis in a wide number of new vehicles made under the Volkswagen umbrella, including the latest Euro-spec Passat, and is expected to be offered with a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel units.

    When a dull as dishwater car is considered by it’s maker to be so spectacular, that it’s called a “long shot,” that’s really bad news for VW. All of their current vehicles are painfully drab, and their upcoming barges don’t look much better. Love it or hate it, the only car they have that has any personality, is the Beetle that they are 86ing. I know that their sales are good. But so is the Camry, as was the Taurus in the 90s, and the Oldsmobile Cutlass in the 80s. Mediocracy sells… clearly.

      Clearly your opinion

      • TheBelltower

        Yes, that’s all it is. As a long time VW owner, the lack of enthusiasm behind their cars today bothers me.
