New Volkswagen Arteon at Napleton's Volkswagen of Urbana

It's a hatchback that thinks it's a grand tourer. A sedan that thinks it's a luxury car. Its elegance on four wheels. What are we talking about? It's the new Volkswagen Arteon Sedan. One of the most exciting looks on the road, and definitely the most elegant in the VW portfolio, the Arteon is creating quite a splash on these shores. It's on sale now at Napleton's Volkswagen of Urbana. Let's take a closer look.

What is the Volkswagen Arteon?

The Volkswagen Arteon is a hatchback sedan that features premium amenities and an artistically alluring exterior. Sculpted with clean lines and outfitted with a new, modern interior, it reminds us of some of its Audi cousins. 

The Arteon's motivation comes from the award-winning family of 2.0-liter turbocharged engines. VW uses them in various applications and horsepower ratings, but in the case of the Arteon, it makes 268 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 258 lb-ft of torque at 1,950 rpm. The four-cylinder mill is mated to a smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission that does its job without notice.

Other features that will appeal to true enthusiasts are the steering wheel-mounted paddle shift levers that allow you to blip the throttle while downshifting, heading into a turn and then powering out of it a second or two later. All the while, the Arteon's automatic torque vectoring system works in the background without you even knowing that it's functioning.

How does the Arteon look?

It's a hatchback body with left-bank styling. The Arteon is a new take on the modern Volkswagen. The Beetle is dead. Long live the Beetle. In other words, it's not 1938 (the Beetle's start of production) anymore. Life has moved on, and so has Volkswagen, and with this new look, we think VW's designers have knocked it out of the park.

The Arteon features a low and wide look incorporated onto a sporty fastback sedan. Highlighted at the front by a large VW logo, there is no mistaking this sport sedan's roots. The doors are sleek and frameless, while the clamshell hood folds over the top of the fenders to add extra swoopiness to the Arteon's aerodynamics. It rides on a platform that is approximately five inches longer than the recently departed Volkswagen CC. 

What about inside the Arteon?

The interior of the new VW Arteon can be described with the term reserved luxury. Not over the top luxe, but luxury which comes from one who is confident of his station in life. The front row includes handsome seats offering supreme support, even while rounding turns. The rear seat offers space for six-footers, even though its roofline tapers into a fastback design. Credit goes to the lower seating cushions on the rear bench seat. 

While the dash is not revolutionary in its design, it features everything where you'd want where you would expect it. The base Arteon SE includes a base 8-inch infotainment display screen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Volkswagen Car-Net, three-zone climate control and a Wi-Fi hotspot. 

Move up to an Arteon SEL to receive a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, panoramic sunroof, Nappa leather interior, adaptive cruise control with stop and go feature and more.

But wait, there's more:

All-wheel-drive is available through VW's 4Motion, offering grip when needed, especially in regions like the Snow Belt. Available 19- and 20-inch wheels add to the sporting quotient. 

The sport-oriented R-Line includes special badging around the Arteon, and includes a black decklid spoiler, stainless-steel scuff plates and pedal caps. 20-inch wheels add an imposing touch, as does the R-Line steering wheel with paddle-shift levers.

Finally, the SEL Premium R-Line includes all of the above, plus 4Motion, Lane Keep Assist, rear parking assist, a 360-degree overhead view camera, ventilated front seats, a massaging driver's seat, a foot-operated power hatchback and a 700-watt Dynaudio sound system.

Most of these options are available as part of a specific trim level. In the case of the Volkswagen Arteon, there are four ranging from the Arteon SE,  Arteon SEL, Arteon SEL R-Line and Arteon SEL Premium R-Line.
