The aerodynamic 2019 Volkswagen Arteon
for sale in San Antonio, Texas is sleek from front to back. The Arteon
is not, says Volkswagen, a replacement for the Passat CC, but instead a
new contender that’s intended to elevate VW to new heights.
VW describes the Arteon as an ‘avant-garde gran turismo’, to which we
retort it’s a rakish hatchback, that’s big on looks and big inside.
Those aspirations attached to it are pretty sizeable, too, because
unlike the Passat CC the Arteon most definitely doesn’t replace before
it, it’s aiming at some premium-badged rivals from Audi and BMW.
Specifically cars like the A5 Sportback and 4 Series Gran Coupe, so, um,
not an altogether design-led, upmarket or tough segment, then.
Volkswagen reckons the Arteon’s got the measure of them though,
dimensionally. It’s a car certainly not lacking in scale.
That doesn’t just give it presence, but space, too. It’ll turn heads:
we’ve never seen anything from VW so obviously and extravagantly
styled. It’s busy and interesting compared to Volkswagen’s more
typically restrained norm. A deliberate move, considering the Arteon is
going to have to stand out among those established, and desirable
