  • 2019 Arteon R-Line Highlight concept

    Volkswagen has prepared a traveling circus packed with five intriguing enthusiast-focused models. Each one has been prepared with a different sort of automotive fan in mind. These five models make up the bulk of VW's current lineup, and you can get your eyes on all of them if you live near one of six upcoming car shows here in the U.S. First up is the 2018 Golf R Abstract concept. The name Abstract is plucked from the ABT Sportsline group that helped build the car. Sitting an inch lower than stock thanks to a set of H&R sport springs, this Golf R boasts more aggressive side skirts and a...

    2019 VW Arteon video preview

    Volkswagen splits its mid-size sedan lineup two ways. For the mainstream consumer, there's the Passat. Kinda plain, but smart. For the buyer with a sense of style, VW offered the CC, and that now gives way to the 2019 Arteon, a car that poses a challenge to the Audi A5 Sportback. It's already on...

    2019 VW Arteon to make US debut at 2018 Chicago auto show

    Volkswagen’s Arteon will go on sale next year as the replacement for the CC. It arrives as a 2019 model and has little in the way of direct competition, apart from the Buick Regal Sportback. Some buyers may also want to check out the Audi A5 Sportback or perhaps even the Kia Stinger. The...

    VW exec hints at Arteon R

    Volkswagen will replace the CC next year with a new model called the Arteon.

VW could spice things up with...

  • 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, 2017 Geneva motor show

    Volkswagen design hasn't been very exciting of late, but then again, it hasn't been that exciting for quite some time. One car that has exuded style since it was released is the Volkswagen CC, and the next generation of this fastback sedan has just been revealed ahead of its formal debut tomorrow at the Geneva auto show. VW is calling it the Arteon but the version due to reach the United States in mid-2018, as a 2019 model, will possibly be the CC once again. While the CC has never been a big seller here, in the absence of the Phaeton it helps fill the important flagship sedan role for VW...
