Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is now accepting pre-bookings for the all-new Volkswagen Arteon. The fully imported Arteon R-Line is expected to be priced between RM290,000 and RM310,000 when it launches in a few months.
Visually breath-taking from any angle, the 5-door fastback is Volkswagen’s flagship model and offers the perfect combination of avant-garde design with dynamic handling. Its name is a true reflection of its appearance – ‘Art’ describes the fastback’s harmonious lines and emotionality, while ‘eon’ identifies’ it as a premium Volkswagen model. The Arteon also won the “2017 Golden Steering Wheel”, one of the most renowned automotive awards in Europe. Built for speed, the Arteon is powered by a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine paired with a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG). Its impressive output of 280 PS and torque of 350 Nm between 5,100 to 6,500 rpm is transferred via 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
Equipped with the new Active Info Display with high-resolution display colour thin-film transistor (TFT), the new setting allows for customization and full map view. The new Discover Pro infotainment system runs through a 9.2-inch screen fitted with gesture control and Wireless App-Connect (CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink). For added convenience, a new 360-degree area view camera enables drivers to see the surroundings of the car through four discreetly integrated cameras. The Arteon comes fitted with both interior and exterior R-Line styling package and is available in eight colours – Manganese Grey, Deep Black, Reflex Silver, Romance Red, Urano Grey, Turmeric Yellow, Oryx White Pearl and Pyrite Silver.
The all new Arteon will be making an early appearance at Volkswagen showrooms (schedule below), and Malaysians eager to sneak a peek are invited to register their interest on the Volkswagen website for an exclusive invite.
