Volkswagen launched its most highly specced car ever in November 2017, with the Passat CC-replacing Arteon.
The Arteon was launched in a single specification, using a 206kW 2.0-litre petrol engine and all-wheel-drive system from the brand’s Golf R hatch.
At 4862mm long, the four-door Arteon is similar in length to cars such as the Mercedes-Benz CLS and BMW 6 Series coupe.
Built upon the MQB platform, it is 95mm longer than the VW Passat with a 50mm longer wheelbase.
