Volkswagen offers a number of vehicles from all different segments, shapes and sizes. This year, the German brand introduced a brand-new four-door fastback sedan to the lineup called the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon. The midsize family car is a fastback, which means it has the appearance of a regular sedan rather than a hatchback but the rear of the vehicle does all become a hatch that opens up, creating more cargo space than a trunk would.
The VW Arteon was first introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March of that year and then made its North American debut at the following year’s Chicago Auto Show. It entered production in 2017, but didn’t become available until mid-to-late 2018 in North America as a member of the 2019 model year lineup.
Available in three trim levels with only one engine option, the Arteon makes an excellent choice for any driver shopping in the midsize sedan segment. Its 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is capable of generating 268 horsepower alongside 258 pound-feet of torque. The engine is tethered to an 8-speed automatic transmission, but shoppers have a choice between a front- or all-wheel drive system.
The engine achieves 22 miles per gallon through city streets like those here in Green Bay, or 31 miles per gallon when you hop on the highway. As for that fastback design we mentioned, you can see it clearly in the images above and next to us. The roofline slopes right down into the back of the vehicle, seamlessly connecting the two together to enhance the air of performance vehicle the Arteon conveys.
This, of course, isn’t all the VW Arteon has to offer. It’s packed with incredible features and technologies that promise to deliver an enjoyable experience on the road each time you head out the door. Whether you’re looking for apps like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto or for safety tech like Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spot Monitor, Lane Assist and so many more.
