New VW Arteon Might Actually Get A Stylish Wagon Version

While VW is currently busy launching the new Arteon in Europe, company sources are already talking about a possible estate version.

“It’s our intention to turn the Arteon into a model family,” said Volkswagen Head of Product Line Elmar Licharz to Autocar. “Right now, we have a proposal on the table for a stylish wagon version to compliment the hatchback. The car has not been confirmed for production yet, but it has a good chance.”

The new VW Arteon will be positioned above the Passat, rivaling more traditional premium models, including the Audi A5 Sportback and the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe.

Depending on the market, customers will be given a choice of six turbocharged powertrains, petrol and diesel. The most powerful versions will be offered only in conjunction with VW’s 4Motion all-wheel drive and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

The new VW Arteon is also the company’s model with the most driver assistance systems, including the new Emergency Assist 2.0, which can bring the car to a full stop if necessary.

    ZERO chance we see that here in the States. Probably for the best … the last thing I want is an excuse to forgive VW for the Dieselgate fiasco.

      Oh you will…once you have a VW, you can’t not have a VW… :p)

  • I’d love to see that, but I’m very doubtful that it will look better than the Skoda Superb.

    What’s the point! It has the same interior as a Passat, and the Passat is a lot cheaper. Buy a 240bhp biturbo Passat estate instead, it’s more fun. A true wolf in sheep’s clothing.
