Gorgeous Volkswagen Arteon to get gorgeous-er

The Arteon, dubbed the spiritual successor to the CC, née Passat CC, is stunning. All angles are good on this car, from the lovely wheels right up to the swept-back roofline. Take a few moments and look through some pictures of the car.

Now, you’re wondering, how could VW possibly improve on such a beautiful creation? Simple actually: extend the roofline. While we’ll call it a wagon, the Germans prefer shooting brake, to differentiate it from estate, or even touring. Typically, we North Americans are not privy to these cars. Take for example the Mercedes CLS and CLA shooting brake. The extending- roofline-with-a-hatch trend is growing however (YAY!) what with Porsche bringing tears of joy to our eyes with the Panamera Sport Turismo and Volvo doing the same with their heart-stopping V60 and V90.

The Arteon Shooting Brake will obviously be built on VW’s MQB platform, like the sedan. Said MQB building block can accommodate a V6 or VR6 engine (Atlas) or any and all versions of the brand’s TSI engine family. Throw in AWD and, does anybody need a kidney? No? A lung perhaps?
