Volkswagen offers glimpse of new Arteon saloon

Volkswagen has released a sneak peek of its new Arteon premium saloon ahead of its official public debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

Featuring a bold new design, the Arteon provides a glimpse at the design language Volkswagen will employ in its future models. At the front of the car, the bars on the radiator grille are styled to flow into the 3D headlights, and are accented by LED elements.

It also features frameless doors, lending the Arteon a more coupe-style appearance. Tobias Suhlmann, the car’s exterior designer, said: “At first sight, the Arteon arouses enthusiasm through its expressive design. It then surprises through its practical virtues. This combination is unique.”

The new car’s name is derived from “Art”, which suggests the dramatic styling, and “Eos”, the moniker used to identify premium Volkswagen vehicles.

The Arteon will be officially revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, which runs from March 9-19, and will be launched in the summer of 2017.
