The new Arteon.
Aerodynamic contours, frameless windows, a striking rear design – the Arteon’s allure endures far beyond the first encounter. And the R-Line trim level features additional exterior highlights that emphasise these dynamic elements.
Fascination to touch in the new Arteon R-Line. The look-and-feel of the interior is truly inspirational.
Jump in and let your senses run riot.
The optional elegant panoramic tilting/sliding sunroof with ambient lighting comprises a glass element with an electrically operated tilt and slide function. Its elegance is surpassed only by the fabulous views it provides of the outside world. What’s more, the light streaming in through the sunroof adds to the feeling of space.
For those who want even more – the Arteon Basis, Elegance and R-Line trim levels are the ultimate in comfort, sportiness and design.
The features of the new Arteon are as impressive as the car itself. They turn every ride into a unique experience that will tantalise all your senses.
Attention to detail: the new Arteon offers premium design as well as driving pleasure. It leads the way in terms of the latest driver assistance systems.
There for you when things don’t go to plan.
Be prepared in the event of an emergency – with the “Emergency Assist” assistance system, which partially takes over control of the vehicle in a medical emergency.1) It is activated if it does not register any activity on the part of the driver. If the system still detects no reaction in spite of a warning, it attempts to revive the driver and alert the passengers and other road users. If there is still no response from driver or passengers, the vehicle is guided into the slow lane by the “Side Assist” lane change system and brought to a controlled stop. An accident can thus be prevented.1)

Extending your field of view.
“Side Assist” lane change assist aids the driver when changing lane. Two radar systems in the rear of the vehicle scan the areas approximately 50 metres behind the vehicle and in the blind spot next to the vehicle.
Regardless of your intention to change lane, “Side Assist” displays all the vehicles in the area critical should you decide to change lane. The system notifies the driver about potential dangers by a constant light illuminating in the corresponding exterior mirror. If the driver nevertheless activates the turn signal, the LED light flashes with increased brightness and draws attention to the danger.
Instead of distracting the driver with unnecessary warnings, it always takes into consideration the difference in speeds. “Side Assist” only signals vehicles which could actually present a danger were the driver to change lane.
The lane change system works above a speed of 15 km/h and is activated at the press of a button. “Side Assist” is the ideal technical enhancement to the vehicle (exterior mirror) and the driver (looking over his shoulder), helping to prevent hazardous situations when changing lane and taking pressure off the driver.
Keeps hazards outside the vehicle.
The proactive occupant protection system uses the rear sensors and “Front Assist” area monitoring system to record critical situations, which pose a higher potential risk of an accident.
When the system detects a hazardous situation, to prepare the vehicle and passengers for a potential accident, the front seat belts are tightened and driver and front passenger are restrained. The seating position of the front seats is also optimised with electric seats. Any open windows and sliding roofs are closed until only a small gap is open and rapid warning flashing is activated as an alert to following traffic.
Once the hazard has passed, and the vehicle is again stabilised in terms of driving dynamics, the front seat belts are loosened. The side windows and sliding roof can be returned to their previous positions.
Open up a whole new perspective.
Whether you’re parking, turning off a road or leaving a driveway, the optional Area View function lets you know what’s going on around your vehicle. Four cameras record images of blind spots around the vehicle and transmit them to the infotainment system – particularly handy when you don’t have a lot of room to manoeuvre.
Your built-in sixth sense.
Always at your side – enjoy the benefits of standard assistance systems such as Lane Assist. This function helps prevent accidents by alerting you should you wander out of your lane by mistake. As far as is feasible, the system detects road markings by means of a camera. If there is any suggestion that you are about to leave your lane unintentionally, Lane Assist alerts you and begins a gentle counter-steering action. A novel feature of Lane Assist in the Arteon is that the system also responds to other road users. So if an oncoming vehicle wanders into the path of the Arteon, your trajectory will be adjusted accordingly. Driving becomes safer and more comfortable, especially on long or monotonous journeys.
Perfect cornering? Absolutely.
You will have more fun on winding roads with the XDS electronic differential lock. The one-sided build-up of brake pressure on the inside wheels enhances traction and makes cornering even more precise. That makes perfect control possible with deft handling. Some engines come equipped with the XDS electronic differential lock as standard, and it is available on request for all other engine types.
Optional Park Assist needs a mere 80 cm of space to manoeuvre your Arteon into the space. And what’s more, it can detect that space independently as you drive past at a maximum speed of 40 km/h. The system not only assists with reverse parallel parking, but can also help you pull forwards into both parallel and side-by-side spaces, for example in underground parking spaces where there’s little room.
You simply operate the clutch, accelerator and brake and the assistant will steer your car along the perfect line into the parking space – and out of side-by-side parking spaces as well. You can override or deactivate steering assistance at any time by taking the wheel, taking the car out of gear or pushing the Park Assist button.
Enlightening in every respect.
Dynamic Light Assist"" provides a brand new sensation when driving with main beams that is perfectly tailored to the situation on the roads. The system with variable road illumination allows the main beam to be left on continuously without dazzling oncoming traffic. This is possible thanks to a masking function which can partially dip the main-beam headlights. Information on other road users and the street lighting is captured by a camera on the interior mirror and then relayed to Dynamic Light Assist. This significantly improves lighting of the entire carriageway.
Cornering at the speed of light.
Advanced dynamic cornering light improves bend illumination by up to 90%, ensuring greater safety and reducing the risk of accidents while cornering. You will appreciate the trajectory of a corner much earlier – along with any obstacles, people and animals around the corner – and thus gain valuable time in which to react to critical situations. (This function is available only in conjunction with the navigation package.)
Maintains a safe distance to the vehicle in front.
Adaptive Cruise Control with predictive cruise control prevents you from exceeding a pre-set top speed and enables you to maintain a minimum distance to the vehicle in front. The new predictive speed regulator complements this function with additional speed and cornering assistance. The integration of official speed data helps you stay within local limits. Moreover, the system uses predictive route data to determine ideal cornering speeds. All this enhances the comfort of you drive.
Drive in your own personal style.
Adaptive chassis control DCC can be used to configure the running gear for normal, sporty or comfortable driving. Electrically variable damping is adapted automatically, as is the electromechanical power assisted steering. Adaptive cruise control DCC reacts continuously to different driving situations and takes account of braking, steering, and acceleration processes.
Adaptive chassis control DCC makes a significant improvement to the vehicle's driving characteristics. The driver is no longer fixed to a particular running gear configuration, rather is able to individually adapt the vehicle. The configuration can be selected conveniently at the press of a button in the centre console. The settings in the Individual menu can be set using a slider and matched to the driver’s personal preference.
Enjoy first-class communication and navigation options and treat your ears to the optional premium sound system "DYNAUDIO Confidence" in the new Arteon.
Car-Net brings the Internet into your car. Car-Net features a range of practical services and helpful apps. For example, you can stay abreast of the current traffic situation while on the road and remain connected with your Arteon, either via smartphone or from home.
