Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia is accepting bookings for the Arteon, the flagship 5-door fastback. It will come fully imported in the R-Line trim and is expected to be priced between RM 290,000 and RM 310,000 when it is expected to launch in a few months.
The Arteon has the proportions of a Gran Turismo with frameless side windows, a wrap-around bonnet, and dynamic lines. Of course, with the wide-opening rear hatch for easy access to the 563-litre luggage compartment. The name ‘Art’ describes the fastback’s harmonious lines and emotionality, while ‘eon’ identifies’ it as a premium Volkswagen model.
Powered by a 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged engine outputting 276 hp and 350 Nm of torque between 5,100 to 6,500 rpm and is mated to a 7-speed wet clutch DSG. Power goes to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
Inside the Arteon is equipped with the new Active Info Display with high- resolution display colour TFT. The new setting allows for customisation and full map view. As for the central 9.2-inch Discover Pro infotainment system, it comes with gesture control and Wireless App-Connect (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink). Added convenience is the new 360-degree area view camera that enables drivers to see the surroundings of the car through four cameras.
The Arteon will be making it rounds at Volkswagen showrooms nationwide, allowing interested Malaysians a sneak peek into the sleek fastback.
