Volkswagen of America today unveiled the all-new 2019 Arteon sedan at the Chicago Auto Show, which replaces the CC in the automaker's lineup.

"The Arteon is Volkswagen's brand shaper", said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of the North American Region, Volkswagen.

Built on VW's MQB modular platform, the Arteon sports a fastback design, premium interior attributes, ample technology and is available with 4Motion all-wheel drive.

The wheelbase is 5-inches longer and it has shorter overhangs than CC to give it that athletic, sport coupe appearance favored by German luxury brands.

United States budget agreement reached
Yet, Republicans and Democrats in the House threatened to hold it up even if it gets bipartisan support in the Senate . Pelosi, however, has reportedly avoided demanding that her Democratic colleagues formally oppose the spending bill.

When it arrives in the U.S., Arteon will be offered in three trim levels-SE, SEL, and SEL Premium-but you'll need to wait a few months before they begin arriving at dealers.

It's a tricky time for sedans, and the Arteon is making its own niche as a premium offering that is larger and nicer than the Passat midsize sedan, but not quite as nice as the Audi A5. Arteon rides on standard 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, with available 19-inch wheels. Heated front seats with leatherette surfaces come standard, but there's an upgrade featuring ventilated front seats with Nappa leather and a massage function. Available driver assist technology on the 2019 Arteon include adaptive cruise control with stop and go, lane assist, park distance control, park assist, and an overhead camera view. Other available features include Volkswagen Car-Net connected vehicle services; Dynaudio® premium audio; a panoramic sunroof; and a power trunk with Easy Open and Close, which allows drivers to walk up to the vehicle with keys in a pocket or purse and simply kick a foot under the rear bumper to pop the trunklid-closing the trunk only requires a touch of the button.

Standard features on all Arteons will include heated front seats, LED headlamps, forward collision assist, autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitor, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto support.

Pricing for the 2019 Arteon was not released. A Start-Stop system is standard to boost fuel economy, though estimates were not released. That's punched out to the front wheels through an eight-speed automatic. The 2017 VW CC starts at just above $35,000, including destination.
