2019 Volkswagen Arteon Drivetrain and Powertrain Features

It’s been awhile since we’ve talked about the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon. However, there’s been a lot of movement from Volkswagen since then. Although we don’t have a full list of features and specs concerning the 2019 VW Arteon, Volkswagen has begun to release new details to tease the upcoming release of their revolutionary new sports sedan.

Very much by its look, and blatantly by its classification as a sports sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon lets drivers know that it will very much be a performance-based model. This sets it quite apart from the Passat and Jetta sedans models in the VW catalog. So, what can drivers expect from Volkswagen’s brand-new model? To determine its performance specs and features, we decided to look under the hood at the powertrain and at its wheelbase to examine the drivetrain. This is what we’ve found:

2019 Volkswagen Arteon Powertrain

First, under the hood is the powertrain, though more specifically the engine as a starting point. The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will, at least in its baseline trim level, be equipped with a 2L turbocharged, direct-injection TSI® engine. Although only 2 liters, this lightweight engine produces up to 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque.

When in the driver’s seat, the 2019 VW Arteon is controlled through a standard 8-speed automatic transmission. Additionally, the 2019 Arteon comes with DCC® adaptive chassis control. Basically, this is a driving mode selection function, although much more precise. DCC® adaptive chassis control lets the driver experiment and find their favorite feel when behind the wheel.

Many sports cars and roadsters only come with rear-wheel drive as a standard inclusion. However, the power generated by the engine can be funneled into Volkswagen’s iconic 4MOTION® all-wheel drive with the 2019 VW Arteon. Expertly distributing power for traction and stability, 4MOTION® all-wheel drive is another excellent standard inclusion for the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon.

When Does the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon Release?

More details concerning the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will be released as we inch towards the fall 2018 USA release date of the Arteon. We can let interested drivers know about new information as it arrives. Just give us a call to ask any further questions about the upcoming VW Arteon sports sedan.
