R you ready? The new Volkswagen Arteon R-Line 4MOTION now open for booking
Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is now accepting pre-bookings for the new Arteon R-Line 4MOTION. Locally assembled at Pekan, Pahang, the new Arteon is expected to be priced between RM245,000 and RM255,000 when it launches.
Introduced to the Malaysian market last year, the Arteon is Volkswagen’s flagship model – a true showstopper that combines a sleek silhouette with dynamic handling and performance. All style and speed, the new Arteon is offered with new enhancements, including updated interior and exterior, new technology and a new engine.
The first model to carry the new Volkswagen and R logos, the athleticism of the Arteon R-Line is further emphasised with sporty R-Line trimmings. The redesigned front grille and bumper are more prominent and compliments its full LED headlights. At the rear, new LED 3D lights with sequential indicators adds character to the Arteon’s sloping fastback design.
The Arteon is built for performance and is powered by a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine. Paired with a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG), it produces an impressive output of 280PS and torque of 350Nm between 5,100 to 6,500rpm, all transferred via a 4MOTION all-wheel drive system. 5.6 seconds is all it will take for the Arteon to outperform its competitors in a century run of zero to hundred.
Its new cockpit was designed to impress – highlights include a new steering wheel with haptic touch controls, ErgoComfort sports seats in Nappa Carbon leather featuring the new R logo, and a premium Harman Kardon 700-watt 12-speaker audio system. The 9.2” Discover Pro infotainment comes with voice and gesture control, and now supports both wireless App-Connect for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. For the driver, a high-resolution Digital Cockpit offers convenience and customisation at the touch of the fingertips. Safety is a key feature, and the driver assistance system in the new Arteon includes Lane Assist, Side Assist, and Driver Alert.
The new Arteon R-Line 4MOTION is available in five colours – metallic options are Lapiz Blue, Manganese Grey, Pyrite Silver, while pearl effect colours are Deep Black and Oryx White.
