Two. That’s how many Volkswagens have leaked out onto the internet today. Earlier this morning we got a good look at the Volkswagen ID.4, VW’s electric crossover that’s earmarked for multiple markets, including the United States. The second is a car we are most certainly not getting: The 2021 Volkswagen Arteon wagon.
The leak first appeared on CarNewsChina’s Facebook page, and it makes it quite clear this is essentially Volkswagen’s take on the Audi A4 Allroad. However, we aren’t so sure Volkswagen’s executed the off-road wagon concept quite as well as Audi. Those of you with good memories might recall the recent teaser Volkswagen sent out for the refreshed Arteon, which we called “über-hot” at the time. Well, we were wrong, because what we have here is basically a lifted wagon version of the more attractive Arteon sedan.
Updates to the Arteon sedan, which the U.S. will get, are still on the way, and the aforementioned teaser promised a revised interior to make the car feel more premium. There will also be visual changes to the front end—many of which you can see in the leaked images. We are also still crossing our fingers for an Arteon R that’s been spied mulling about Germany. Until we get official images of the Arteon and its wagon counterpart, though, you can take a look at the leaked images and make up your mind as to whether you like it or not.
