2021 Arteon Delivers New Style, Tech Savvy Interior

The Volkswagen Arteon has received several impressive upgrades for 2021 including a sleek exterior design and premium interior upgrades.

The 2021 model offers three trims: SE, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line. Volkswagen Digital Cockpit is included as a standard feature along with MIB3 infotainment system, which offers updated navigation and wireless App-Connect.

The Arteon is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged and direct-injection TSI engine, making 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Power is taken to the front wheels via a standard eight-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic shifting. Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive is available on SEL R-Line models and standard on SEL Premium RLine models.

Updates to R-Line models include an illuminated light bar in the front grille and translucent décor with 30-color ambient lighting inside. The updates also include wireless charging, and enhanced driver assistance technology.

Three new colors were added to 2021 models—Kings Red Metallic, Oryx White Pearl (R-line), and Lapiz Blue Metallic (R-line).

Volkswagen’s interior designers redesigned the entire dash panel (surfaces, air outlets and trims), center console and top sections of the door trims. An aluminum trim highlights the dashboard and doors in SE models; R-Line models incorporate translucent elements with 30-color ambient lighting.

All Arteon models feature standard LED headlights and Daytime Running Lights. SEL R-Line models add Volkswagen’s Adaptive Front-lighting System, which adjusts the headlight beams to help compensate for dynamic changes such as deceleration and cornering. SEL R-Line models feature power-folding side mirrors with position memory.

All 2021 Arteon models include Volkswagen’s Automatic Post-Collision Braking System. The Automatic Post-Collision Braking System helps address certain crash scenarios by applying the brakes when a primary collision is detected by airbag sensors.
