2021 Volkswagen Arteon

After many delays, the Volkswagen Arteon finally went on sale in the U.S. in the spring of 2019, yet VW is already planning an update. The automaker announced an updated version will premiere in late June and published a teaser image of the new sedan as well as a new wagon version.

Inside, VW said, the sedan will have a new cockpit and use the newest version of Volkswagen’s multimedia system. The automaker also said the car will get new advanced driver assistance features under the Travel Assist umbrella. 

“Designed particularly with long-distance journeys in mind, these Volkswagen models will take over steering, acceleration and braking up to speeds of 130 mph — under the control of the driver,” the automaker said in a statement.

No word yet on if this system will be approved for U.S. roads, however.

The other model announced is an Arteon wagon called the Shooting Brake; VW said it will go on sale in Europe. Check back for more details as the automaker reveals them.
