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.

Eye-catching. From any angle.

The Arteon’s elongated contours and long wheelbase give it a highly distinctive profile – and an abundance of space wherever you are seated. The wrap-around emcompassing bonnet and frameless side windows are especially eye-catching and exude quality and elegance in the style of a classical fastback limousine.


The Arteon lettering on the rear holds out the promise of more; it is guaranteed to turn heads and leave a lasting impression. The name is taken from the Latin word for art and alludes to the coherent, aesthetic lines of the design.

Evocative lighting concept.

The modern LED taillights are a token of the new Arteon’s potency and outstanding dynamic range. The dynamic turn signal featured in the R-Line and Elegance trim levels are a striking, safety-enhancing feature.

Frameless side window. Infinitely impressive.

You won’t just look good in the new Arteon, you’ll also enjoy amazing views out of the frameless side windows. They don’t just typify the new Arteon as a fastback but also very discreetly underline its elegant appearance.

Space concept.

Fascination to touch in the new Arteon R-Line. The look-and-feel of the interior is truly inspirational.

Design, that you can feel.

The look-and-feel of the cockpit in Arteon’s new R-Line trim is truly inspirational. The multifunction, leather sports steering wheel bears the “R-Line” badge and boasts decorative stitching; it is complemented by “Silver Rise” inlays in aluminium. The optional “top-comfort” seats in “Nappa” leather with “carbon-style” inner faces of the side sections and decorative stitching and braiding, not to mention the “R-Line” badge embroidered into the front seats make each ride a feast for the senses.

Panoramic tilting/sliding sunroof and ambient lighting.

The new Arteon affords an incomparable field of vision. The panoramic tilting/sliding sunroof teamed with the pleasant ambient lighting inside are certain to brighten your day, whatever the weather.

Multifunction steering wheel and Active Info display.

The multifunction leather steering wheel lets you stay in charge of the vehicle and your information while on the move. And with the optional innovative Active Info display, content such as rev counter, speedometer and mileage indicator – even detailed data on the trip and the various driver assistance systems – are arranged in your direct line of sight at the heart of the dash display.

Spacious boot with easy-open and easy-close functions.

In the new Arteon, comfort and convenience begin even before you set off. Offering a good up to 563 litres of luggage space, the boot is generously proportioned by fastback limousine standards. And thanks to the optional easy-open function, a flick of the foot under the rear of the vehicle is all it takes to unlock the electric hatch. The time-delayed electric closing function means you can close the luggage compartment at the touch of a button, leaving you free to load and unload at your leisure.

Assistance systems.

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.

Cruise Control

By far one of the most useful driver assistance systems is Cruise Control. You simply specify your top speed and the system makes sure you don’t exceed it.

Advanced dynamic cornering light.

Advanced dynamic cornering light illuminates bends in the road before you even start to turn the wheel. This means that you can see – and be seen – much better on winding roads.

Adaptive chassis control DCC.

Sportily, comfortably, normally or in your own individual style: you determine how your new Arteon is to drive. Optimised adaptive chassis control DCC continuously reacts to the road and the driving situation. This is extremely pleasant for you as it allows you to enjoy a high level of driving comfort combined with optimum driving dynamics.

Side Assist.

Keep everything in view when changing lane. Even vehicles you can’t see in your exterior mirror or when looking over your shoulder. “Side Assist” alerts you to vehicles up to 70 metres behind you and in the vehicle’s blind spot, which could present a potential danger should you change lane.

Proactive Occupant Protection System.

The proactive occupant protection system acts like a protective guard, within the system’s limits, when it recognises critical situations. Drivers and passengers are protected from a possible accident in a situation such as this, by the front seat belts being tightened to restrain the driver and passenger. Any open windows and the sliding roof are closed until only a small gap is open.

Area View.

Keeping an eye on what’s around: the optional Area View function. Area View feeds live images from around your Arteon straight into the cockpit.
