Out goes Volkswagen’s Passat CC. Enter the Volkswagen Arteon. Slightly bigger, lower, and more aggressive than its predecessor, the new five door coupe — probably so-called for its fastback roofline — is an elegant departure from VW’s rather monotonous styling as of late. Its facade is adorned with standard LED headlights alongside the six chrome-plated crossbars of its sizeable grille. One of six turbocharged four-cylinder engines powers the thing, ranging from both 148 horsepower-producing diesel TDI and petrol TSI and going up to a 276 hp TSI engine, with each coupled to either a six or seven speed DSG transmission. Inside it’s more full-featured than ever what with a battery of driver assistance features that include adaptive cruise control, lane assist, and area view, 4Motion all-wheel drive on higher-end trim lines, a touchscreen infotainment system, and even a heads-up display that presents speed, directions, and other crucial information intuitively, right on your windscreen.
