Volkswagen’s top rate sedan, the Arteon, has been on sale in the US for much less than 12 months now, and its debut on our shores wasn’t precisely choreographed to perfection. The attractive sedan that changed the shapely however underpowered CC in VW’s lineup is currently being presented with sizeable economic incentives, making it a tempting buy at its price point.
Spy pictures recently caught a prototype Arteon iciness trying out in Sweden. The car seems like the new Arteon R that has been rumoured for pretty a while now. The take a look at mule has numerous characteristics that indicate its higher-performance credentials which include pass drilled front disc brake, blue brake callipers, more massive the front fascia air intakes, and a rear spoiler as well as a diffuser. Most importantly.
No Bandwagon Volkswagen
The motivational heart of the Arteon R, maybe, according to most reports, a 3.0L twin-turbocharged V6 producing somewhere north of four hundred hp. All the power could be routed via Volkswagen’s 4Motion AWD system. No phrase yet at the transmission however we’re hoping for a dual-clutch application with higher than the 8-speeds which are currently available inside the Arteon.
The R must be arriving late this year as a 2021 model. In a world that has gone SUV-mad, Volkwagen’s attempt to decorate its flagship sedan is commendable. We are excited at the potentialities of pitting the new Arteon R against that benchmark of affordable overall performance sedans, the Kia Stinger GT. We can rarely wait!
