To show off how stylish the 2019 VW Arteon is, VW tasked award-winning photographer and filmmaker Douglas Sonders to create a unique photo shoot. The results of the photo shoot were revealed last night at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

For the photo shoot, Sonders said that he was inspired by ‘80s synth wave music and the visuals that it spawned, which drew him to the Los Angeles space with the grid ceiling of LED-lit panels.

“It’s important to capture a car’s essence,” says Sonders. “I develop an emotional attachment to my cars, and they each have a personality in their designs. The Volkswagen Arteon has a beautiful modern edge, from the shoulder lines to the grille, and I wanted to do it justice.”

The 2019 VW Arteon will go on sale later this year and will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 268 horsepower and 258 lb-ft. of torque. The four-cylinder is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive is optional.
