Meet the Future of VW Styling


If you’re a fan of the 2017 Volkswagen Beetle, there are probably many reasons you’re drawn to the iconic car. One of those reasons might be “fastback.” In the automotive industry, fastback refers to an automobile that has a roof line that looks like it glides to the car’s rear in an uninterrupted, flowing curve.

While the Volkswagen Beetle has always had fastback, the VW brand recently revealed a modern interpretation of fastback on an all-new VW model, the Volkswagen Arteon. The Volkswagen Arteon is a visually intriguing, four-door flagship automobile that represents the direction the VW brand will take with styling as the automaker moves forward.

The all-new Volkswagen Arteon offers the roominess that’s often associated with luxury vehicles, the convenience of a hatchback, and various new technologies. When discussing the Volkswagen Arteon, Dr. Elmar-Marius Licharz, head of the mid- and full-size vehicle lines for Volkswagen, said “It’s the perfect car for people who appreciate great style and great value for money. That is how we are challenging premium car makers without becoming one ourselves.”

Licharz added, “The car looks simply great – it both arouses emotions and creates desirability. Many of the details of the show car have made it into real production.”

When it arrives at our Baltimore, MD Volkswagen dealership, you’ll see that the Volkswagen Arteon has an integrated grille, LED headlights, and daytime running lights highlighted by chrome trim. These three style touches make up the Volkswagen’s brand new automotive “face.”

With its modern take on fastback, the Volkswagen Arteon has a genuine hatchback trunk. Many drivers will appreciate the cargo space the sporty Volkswagen Arteon has. With its seats down, the VW Arteon has up to 55 cubic feet of cargo room, making it a great pick for road trips with the family.

While the all-new Volkswagen Arteon hasn’t arrived at our Volkswagen dealership just yet, we do have a full inventory of 2017 VW vehicles. Visit Heritage Volkswagen Catonsville on Baltimore National Pike to find a new VW car today.
