The first for the novelty will be the car market of the USA and Europe. After the update, the car became even more stylish and received a luxurious interior.
Volkswagen presented the updated Arteon model. Recall that the debut of the novelty in Europe took place in 2018, and in the USA it debuted in 2019. And now you can observe the updated version, which is positioned as a model of 2021. One of the innovations will be the body type of the Shooting Brake, although it will be available only for European buyers. And American dealers will receive cars only in the classic version of the liftback.

For more advanced modifications SEL R-Line and SEL Premium R-Line there are options with an all-wheel drive system.
Volkswagen took an unusual step and decided to highlight the sports version of the R-Line not only with options, but also externally. Designers significantly modified the front part of such a car – it received a different radiator grille, a modified bumper, as well as an LED strip between the headlights. The rear of the car has not changed so much – we note the original look of the rear lights, and the R-Line version has been equipped with a special bumper for integrating twin exhaust pipes.
The car interior was premium – the new Arteon uses the highest quality materials. The front panel is covered with embossed faux leather.
Climate control has been taken to a new level – it has a more intuitive interface and uses touch keys. But the multimedia system for Europe and the United States will be slightly different – European buyers will receive the most modern VIB MIB3 complex exclusively with a touch interface, but for the USA they decided to leave a number of physical buttons.
