Arteon is a five-door gran turismo from Volkswagen which is positioned above the globally successful Passat
"Volkswagen is introducing a new generation of driver assistance systems in the Arteon. They include the further advanced Emergency Assist. Until now, this system was able to autonomously bring the vehicle to a standstill in case of a medical emergency. Now Emergency Assist also enables the car to autonomously change lanes, within system limits."
Dr Frank Welsch, Member of the Board of Management, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand, Development Division
"The Arteon is the new top model of the Volkswagen brand. With our new product structure and the new 'Elegance' and 'R-Line' equipment lines, we will be meeting the high expectations of our customers!"
Jürgen Stackmann, Member of the Board of Management, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Brand for Sales, Marketing and After-Sales
"The Arteon combines the design elements of a classic sports car with the elegance and space of a fastback. An avant-garde business-class gran turismo that speaks to the heart and head alike."
Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design, Volkswagen Brand
"The Arteon's appeal comes not only from its elegant and unmistakable design. In its technology, it also sets very high standards and provides significantly more space than that of its competitors. The Arteon is thus setting new benchmarks in this segment."
Dr Elmar-Marius Licharz, Head of the Volkswagen Arteon Product Line
