Interior

The exterior design of the Arteon translates into a spacious interior for everyday usability. The long wheelbase afforded by the MQB architecture gives Arteon generous rear legroom, at 40.2 inches, with substantial headroom as well-37.7 inches in front, and 37.0 in the rear. Arteon offers 19.9 cubic feet of trunk storage; with the standard 60:40 rear seats folded down, that number increases to 55 cubic feet. 

The cabin experience is further refined with modern design and premium materials. The dashboard is organized along a clean, straight line, and features an innovative air vent that extends across the entire width of the interior. Dash panels flow directly into the front door trim panels, wrapping around front passengers like a cocoon. 

Three-zone Climatronic® automatic climate control is standard across the Arteon range; SEL Premium R-Line models add a rear seat control panel. Heated, 12-way power front seats in leatherette are standard in the Arteon SE. SEL models add Nappa leather seating surfaces and a memory setting for the driver, while SEL Premium R-Line models have ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a massaging function for the driver. A leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel is standard across all models; SEL Premium R-Line models feature a heated version with paddle shifters. 

Models equipped with the optional R-Line package welcome drivers with the R-Line logo on the touchscreen and feature a number of interior design enhancements including: contrast stitching on the steering wheel and shift knob; steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters; metallic décor pieces; black headliner; stainless-steel sport pedal covers; and stainless-steel door sills with the R-Line logo.


 

Exterior

From the front, Arteon has an aggressive stance-low and wide-that immediately sets it apart from the sedan segment. Taking inspiration from classic sports cars, the contoured hoodlines on the Arteon extend directly into its grille. The grille, in turn, emphasizes the width of the Arteon in chrome crossbars framed by standard LED lighting. 


The side profile of the Arteon is elegantly coupe-like, with a fast sloping rear roofline. A bold character line flows from the grille and runs uninterrupted through the side panels and into the rear of the car. The tail end of the Arteon again borrows from classic sports car styling with its high, broad shoulders, accented by standard LED taillights. Chrome details also flow from front to back, with lower-door and trunk accent pieces. 


The ambitious design is made possible by the flexible MQB architecture. The wheelbase on the Arteon is 111.7 inches and is paired with short overhangs for more dynamic proportions. Arteon is 191.4 inches long, 73.7 inches wide and 56.5 inches tall. Thanks to a sophisticated overall aerodynamic package, the 2020 Arteon has a low 0.30 coefficient of drag. 


All Arteon models feature standard LED headlights,Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), and taillights. SEL models upgrade to LED headlights with the Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS),which adjusts the headlight beams to help compensate for dynamic changes, like deceleration and cornering, and feature power-folding side mirrors with memory. SEL Premium R-Line models add puddle lights to the side-mirrors that illuminate when you unlock the doors. 


The Arteon SE and SEL models are shod with 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The SEL RLine and SEL Premium R-Line trims have 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, in addition to a number of design elements to enhance the four-door coupe's sportiness. Exterior styling details include R-Line badging, a unique front bumper that incorporates stylish air intakes in a gloss-black finish, R-Line air inlets, and a gloss-black rear spoiler.


A panoramic power-tilt-and-slide sunroof is standard equipment on SEL, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line models. Top-of-the-line SEL Premium R-Line models also feature a standard power trunk with Easy Open and Close function; drivers can simply walk up to the vehicle with their keys in a pocket or purse and kick a foot under the rear bumper to open the trunk lid, while closing the trunk only requires a touch of the button. KESSY® keyless access is standard on all Arteon models. 




 

Technology

Dynaudio®: Arteon SEL Premium R-Line models feature a 700-watt Dynaudio sound system with 13 channels and 12 speakers. 


Volkswagen Digital Cockpit: Arteon SEL models and above feature Volkswagen Digital Cockpit as standard equipment. The 10.25-inch screen replaces the traditional instrument panel, and the customizable digital display's 1,440x540 pixel resolution renders details with extreme precision. There are five different information display profiles the driver can select. In the Navigation profile, the speedometer and rev counter are relocated to the sides to make room for the navigation map in the middle. Information on driving, navigation and assistance functions can also be integrated into the speedometer and rev counter graphics as necessary. Data such as telephone contact images and CD covers can also be displayed in the Digital Cockpit display. 


MIB II Infotainment: All 2020 Arteon models feature the innovative Volkswagen MIB II touchscreen infotainment system. The display utilizes a capacitive-touch sensor (as in smartphone and tablet technology) rather than the more common resistive touchscreens that require pressure, enabling gesture controls like swiping and even pinch-zooming. All Arteon models are equipped with a glass-covered 8.0-inch capacitive touchscreen display-SE models with the Composition Media unit; SEL models and above with the Discover Media system with navigation. App-Connect smartphone integration for compatible devices is standard, and offers users the ability to run select smartphone apps directly on the vehicle's display through services such as Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink®. The infotainment systems also offer SD card and USB-A (two ports for Composition Media units, three for Discover Media units) multimedia interfaces, as well as Bluetooth® technology for compatible devices, SiriusXM® radio for a three-month trial period, and HD Radio. Both units have the ability to send and receive SMS text messages via Bluetooth with compatible phones and can pair two phones simultaneously. The Discover Media unit offers 2.5D navigation, featuring one-shot voice destination entry, typed destination entry with search and auto-complete, and predicts possible destinations based on frequently used routes.


Safety


To help protect occupants, the Arteon provides a combination of both passive and active safety systems. It features eight airbags as standard (front, side, and knee airbags for front passengers and side curtain airbags for outboard seating positions), along with a number of electronic safety systems, such as an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC). 


A standard feature on the 2020 Arteon is Volkswagen's Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. This builds on the premise that a collision is rarely a single, instantaneous action, but rather a series of events that follow the initial impact-the most significant of which can cause additional collisions. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps address this, in certain crash scenarios, by applying the brakes when a primary collision is detected by the airbag sensors, thus potentially reducing residual kinetic energy and, in turn, the chance of additional damage.


 The Arteon also includes Volkswagen's Intelligent Crash Response System that shuts off the fuel pump, unlocks the doors, and switches on the hazard lights if the car is involved in certain types of collisions.


Volkswagen Car-Net: Car-Net Remote Access gives owners the ability to interact with their vehicle from miles away via the mobile app. It is offered at no additional charge for five years from the date of vehicle purchase. Features include remote start and stop (if equipped), remote door lock and unlock, remote honk and flash of lights, last parked location, and remote vehicle status display, which provides information on fuel level, mileage, and door and window status. 


Blind Spot Monitor (Side Assist) is standard on all Arteon models. Side Assist uses two radar sensors at the rear of the vehicle to scan the approaching traffic and is intended to warn drivers of the presence of other vehicles in adjacent lanes. If the driver uses the turn signal to indicate a lane change while a vehicle is detected in a blind spot, the system utilizes a flashing LED symbol in the mirror housing. Even if the driver does not use a turn signal, the LED symbol in the mirror housing will illuminate if a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. The system is designed to help alert drivers in specific situations; stationary objects or oncoming vehicles do not trigger warnings, nor do vehicles more than one lane across away from the vehicle. 


If combined with Lane Assist (SEL and SEL Premium models, see below) the system not only warns the driver with the flashing LED symbol if a vehicle is detected in the blind spot, but within system limits, it can also countersteer to help keep the car in the lane even if the turn signal is on. If the driver still tries to steer out of the lane, the system will warn with an additional vibration of the steering wheel. 


The Rear Traffic Alert system, standard on all models is intended to detect vehicles approaching from the side that may be difficult for the driver to see while reversing. The system offers a 180-degree view of the back of the car with a range of 65 feet, and will present a visual and an acoustic warning, if a potential collision with a crossing vehicle is detected. If the driver does not react, the system can apply the brakes to help mitigate and, in the best case, can prevent a collision. The system is activated by putting the car in reverse. 


Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), standard on SEL and SEL Premium models, uses a forward facing radar to maintain a set speed while helping maintain a set distance to the vehicle in front. The driver sets the speed and the desired spacing via buttons on the multifunction steering wheel and can further use those buttons to adjust and cancel the ACC function while the accelerator can be used to override the ACC function. Pressing the brakes always cancels the ACC function. All ACC-related system messages appear in the central multifunction display.
