Volkswagen is enhancing its model line-up with a GT, in the form of its new Arteon. This fastback model, positioned above the Passat, will be presented at the Geneva International Motor Show.

Combining avant-garde design with a high level of versatility was the key objective for designers and developers of the Arteon. At the same time, this resulted in an interior architecture which is spacious – with ample head and leg room at all seats. One key design elements of the Arteon include its completely new front end, in which the LED headlights and daytime running lights merge with the chrome-plated crossbars of the radiator grille and the bonnet. The car’s shoulder section is another defining feature of its design.

Other equipment features making their debut in the Arteon include the latest generation of driver assistance systems. Volkswagen also mentioned the Arteon will be 'one of the most attractive product in its segment'.
