For VW, a new look with a handy hatchback

If there's one gripe with the new Arteon, it's the lack of an available power upgrade. The 2.0-liter turbocharged four gets the job done, is adequate for most daily driving, but some undoubtedly will yearn for more. (vw.com)

Volkswagen's new flagship, the 2019 Arteon, is being called the "spiritual successor" to the CC, which last appeared in 2017. Those are VW's words.

But forget spirituality for a moment. Arteon trumps the CC in power and size, offers functional hatchback utility and is quite a looker, too. In fact, it's a refreshing new look for Volkswagen with its wide stance and a fastback profile accented by sharp creases. And there's the unusual clamshell hood that extends over the fenders rather than line up with them.
