The Volkswagen Arteon is the new flagship for the company. It is a new sedan that has a sporty look to it. The Aerton is part of the R-line series of cars for Volkswagen that has a sporty look and delivers like one as well on a sedan.

The Volkswagen Arteon has an aggressive look on its front. It has LED lights both front and rear which comes to it as the standard. Much of the aesthetics of the new Arteon is heavily borrowed from Audi, which is a subsidiary of Volkswagen. The aggressive look of the Arteon makes this very obvious.

One distinct feature of the Arteon is its low hood. Another would be its long wheelbase. These emphasize even more that the Arteon means business, which would be somewhat of a departure from Volkswagen's more laid back nature.

The Volkswagen Arteon is essentially more of a sports coupe than a sedan with its looks, its four doors notwithstanding. At its heart, it is powered by a 2.0 liter, four cylindered turbocharged engine that can deliver 270 hp. Transmission is an eight-speed automatic torque converter, according to Car and Driver. So far, no manual version of the car would be available.

Inside the Arteon, the seats have leather trims, though the dashboard does not have it. The interior does have wood accents, which gives the car a touch of class. It has a 9.2-inch touchscreen that can respond to voice commands and hand gestures.

Modern convenience as well is in the Arteon with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Adaptive cruise control is there as well to aid drivers with ease of driving. The overall weight of the car is at a comfortable 3400 pounds. While the Arteon might be fun to drive, in the US speed limiters though should limit it to up to 155 mph.

The Volkswagen Arteon has a bold and aggressive look to it, as noted by The Verge. It could be that Volkswagen is going for more bold cars, a direction that would be different from its more laid back nature. Overall, the Volkswagen Arteon is a new flagship for the company that has a bold and aggressive look which should be something new for Volkswagen enthusiasts. Also recently, Honda has come out with the 2017 Honda Civic Type R.
