Volkswagen brought to the tests the updated Arteon with almost no camouflage, which allows you to freely examine its design.

The updated model looks almost identical to the outgoing Arteon – only the most attentive ones will notice the differences. The most significant change is in the form of revised headlights that look slightly smaller than the current model. The grille also became simpler and got rid of part of the excess chrome, the air intakes slightly changed.

In addition, improvements were made to the taillights, although the lights of this prototype seem to be covered at the edges with a masking film hiding the new design. Continuing our research behind, we note that this latest prototype will debut with the new Arteon lettering on the tailgate, which uses a new font and freestanding letters closer to each other.

The biggest news related to the updated VW Arteon is the fact that it will be available in a performance-oriented version of R, however, expert opinions on the Arteon R power plant are divided. Some sources claim a power of 333 hp. will come from the new Golf R’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and be transmitted to all four wheels through a dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Others suggest that the new Arteon R will run a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged VR6, offering up to 400 hp. in combination with a DSG transmission and 4Motion AWD system. According to rumors, this will be enough to accelerate the length meter to 100 km / h in about 4.0 seconds.

It is known that the Shooting Brake model will join the updated liftback of the Arteon family. Photos of this car have recently leaked from China, where it was called the Volkswagen CC Travel Edition. The updated VW Arteon is expected to be released before the end of the year as a 2021 model.
