New Volkswagen Arteon R-Line open for booking – Around RM250,000
After a series of teasers on its social media platforms over the past week or so, Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM), the sole distributor of Volkswagen vehicles in Malaysia, 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.
First model with new logo
Introduced to the Malaysian market last year, the Arteon is the first model to carry the new Volkswagen and R logos in Malaysia.
On the exterior, 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.
280 PS, 350 Nm
Power on the other hand, comes courtesy of a 2.0L TSI turbocharged engine that is paired with a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG).
Together, they produce 280 PS and 350 Nm of torque between 5,100 to 6,500rpm, all transferred via a 4MOTION all-wheel drive system. 5.6 seconds is how long it it will take for the Arteon to do the century sprint.
Inside, 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-inch 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.
