Report: Arteon to Go On Sale This Summer

Volkswagen’s Arteon is finally about to be on. On sale that is.

VW has confirmed that the four-door coupe will be going on sale early this summer.

The stylish Arteon, which is a replacement for the CC that rides on VW’s latest MQB platform was supposed to go on sale late last year. But testing and homologation issues VW blames on the WLTP rollout pushed it back. Way back.

Now Car and Driver reports that a VW spokesperson confirmed that yes, the Arteon is going to be on sale at US dealers this summer.

It will still be a 2019 model year vehicle, even if it’s a late one, and the specs aren’t supposed to change.

One engine, a 268 hp 2.0L four, one eight-speed auto, and front or all-wheel drive. The production car will be available in SE, SEL, SEL Premium and R-Line trims with pricing expected closer to the actual on-sale date.
