Volkswagen has given the Arteon a major facelift for the 2021 model year. Although it may seem too early, given that the American market has just received the flagship model in April 2019, the Arteon has been present in Europe since 2018 This makes the updated Arteon on time, and its multitude of updates further reinforces this decision.
Included in the VW Arteon 2021 is the availability of an example fire brake. Although it is no secret that we are fans of wagons here Engine1, we are sad to announce that the United States is not receiving the Arteon wagon, just like the more powerful Arteon R.
But what is a fire brake, really? Modern interpretations and the version of the firing brakes include five-door long-roof vehicles, which makes the term interchangeable with car and goods. However, more recent history shows us examples of three-door fire brakes that combine the elegant style of the coupe with the practicality of railcars.
Whether you plan to apply the brakes to have two or four passenger doors is beyond us. But if you are the old one, X-Tomi design returned the Arteon 2021 with two fewer passenger doors, and we thought you might like it as much as we do.
Then again, the Arteon shot brake will remain a banned fruit in the American market, so the closest thing we will ever have to this sleek wagon is through the official images in this article – at least for now.
The Arteon 2021 bound for the United States will have four versions – SE, SEL R-Line and SEL Premium R-Line – all powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in-line engine that produces 268 horsepower (200 kilowatts) and 258 foot-pounds (350 Newton meters) of torque thanks to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The latter comes with sports elements to increase its aesthetic appeal.
