The new Volkswagen Arteon fastback and Shooting Brake variants will go on sale here from the start of September.
Apart from one being a fastback and the other an estate they also differ significantly from the B-pillars to the rear. The brand says the Shooting brake is a completely new interpretation of the estate concept and offers more headroom at both the front and rear.
They will be the 1.5 petrol and 2.0 diesel followed by the Arteon R flagship and, for the first time, Volkswagen is offering a plug-in hybrid due in November.
With the R version, the brand is pushing further into the premium performance segment.
New assist systems include Travel Assist which is assisted driving up to 210km/h.
The Arteon Shooting Brake has a 565L capacity which can be extended to a huge 1,632L.
The cars are among 34 new models to be launched by Volkswagen this year.
