What’s under the hood?
Every 2021 Volkswagen Arteon that is coming to the Team Gunther VW showroom will use the same powertrain. A turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission (with Tiptronic® shifting) will be under the hood. It will make 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel-drive is standard, however, 4Motion® all-wheel-drive is an available option for the SEL R-Line and standard equipment on the SEL Premium R-Line trim.
The Volkswagen Digital Cockpit has been a game-changer in previously produced VW vehicles. For the 2021 model year, the automaker will be equipping ever VW Arteon trim grade with the customizable LCD screen. In place of traditional analog gauges, the VW Digital Cockpit will allow drivers to show the information they need most. Some of what can be displayed on the LCD Digital Cockpit screen will include Vehicle speed and engine speed (RPM), status of the available safety systems and navigation information.
Additionally, every 2021 VW Arteon will also be able to use the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ suites of applications during their commute.
