The flagship model of the German brand in the station wagon, which will receive the designation VW Arteon Shooting Brake, will be presented in China on June 24.

In anticipation of the show of the German news, scheduled for June 24, the universal version of the flagship fastback VW with a long roof unexpectedly debuted in the registration photos of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China.

Fun fact – Arteon has the old name “CC” in the People’s Republic of China. It seems that the version of the novelty for the Chinese market received elements from the Alltrack off-road performance – increased ground clearance and plastic body lining. It is still unknown what will be the European version of the same car. In any case, over time, we will be shown a more productive version of the station wagon, which will receive the designation Arteon R Shooting Brake.

Some argue that Arteon, or as it is also called in China, CC Shooting Brake is a direct competitor to Passat Variant / Alltrack.

However, VW believes that there are people willing to pay more money mainly for the same car, but which is positioned by the automaker itself as the flagship. That’s why they developed the Arteon Shooting Brake.

The appearance of the body of the novelty does not surprise us, since the car looks exactly as we expected. At the same time, we hoped that the more practical version of the Arteon would get a different design for the rear lights, but the car has the same lights as the fastback version … but practically. The published photos show two different configurations, a car with a yellow tinge of the body is probably an R-Line variant.

The white car with the “330 TSI” badge is equipped with a 2.04-liter turbocharged gasoline engine with an output of 184 horsepower, while the yellow car has the “380 TSI” badge, which means that under its hood there is a four-cylinder engine with 220 hp turbocharged
