Surprise: here is the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake!
Rumours of a Shooting Brake version of the Volkswagen Arteon are not new and even go back to last year. Many imagined that a Shooting Brake version would be very well suited for the Arteon. Since then, with the rise of SUVs, we thought that the project was left in the background.
The arrival of these two spy photos taken in a Chinese factory took everyone by surprise, including us. Named the Volkswagen CC Travel Edition after the local media, the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake was developed by Volkswagen, of course, but also by its Chinese partner FAW.
At the front, the changes are minor. The bumper and front grille have been slightly updated. The bumper has been given a little more chrome, while the grille seems to adopt a light strip linking the lights, as on the ID.3 and the Golf.
The rear end receives the biggest changes. The rear window tries to remain as tilted as possible to stay faithful to the coupe's design. The lights, for example, are identical. On the bumper, the modifications are of the same nature as at the front with the addition of chrome. It now remains to be seen whether the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake will only be offered in China or will also be exported to other markets.
