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.
