The fully imported Arteon R-Line is expected to be priced between RM290,000 and RM310,000 when it launches in a few months.
The 5-door fastback is Volkswagen’s flagship model and offers a combination of avant-garde design with dynamic handling.
Built for speed, the Arteon is powered by a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine paired with a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG). Its output of 276hp and torque of 350Nm between 5,100 and 6,500rpm is transferred via 4MOTION all-wheel drive system.
Equipped with the new Active Info Display with high-resolution display colour thin-film transistor (aka full digital meter cluster as is the trend now), the new setting allows for customisation and full map view.
The new Discover Pro infotainment system runs through a 9.2-inch screen fitted with gesture control and Wireless App-Connect (CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink). For added convenience, a new 360-degree area view camera enables drivers to see the surroundings of the car through four discreetly integrated cameras.
The Arteon comes fitted with both interior and exterior R-Line styling package and is available in eight colours – Manganese Grey, Deep Black, Reflex Silver, Romance Red, Urano Grey, Turmeric Yellow, Oryx White Pearl and Pyrite Silver.
The Arteon will be making an early appearance at Volkswagen showrooms (see table below), and interested buyers are invited to register their interest on the Volkswagen website.
