The Arteon will borrow styling cues from the Sport Coupe GTE concept that debuted at this year's Geneva Motor Show. What exactly does "Arteon" mean? According to VW, the name is made up of two component parts: 'Art' describes the fastback's harmonious lines and emotionality. The ending 'eon' identifies it, in the same way as Volkswagen's top model for the Chinese market, the Phideon, as a premium model.

Following its debut in Geneva, the Arteon will go on sale by summer 2017.
