The Arteon is based on Volkswagen's MQB architecture, the same platform found under the skin of the current Golf and 2019 Jetta - and several dozen other products sold through a range of other brands in the VW empire. From the side, Arteon is accented by slit-like exhaust ports that stretch from the creased front fenders into the front doors.
The Arteon comes with a stunning exterior design that features wide stance, acres of chrome, and a sloping roofline. For now, the VW brand remains a small player with market share of 2% in 2017, according to Autodata Corp.

The automaker also will offer 4Motion all-wheel-drive on all trim levels.
