2022 VW Arteon AllTrack: raising the wagon…
VW released a wagon “Shooting Brake” version of the Arteon a little while ago. It is sold in Europe and China, mainly. And of course, will not be coming to the US.
Now we are seeing an off-road looking raised up version. Probably called Alltrack (At least in Europe)
I think it would be great to have this over here (even though there are no chances of seeing it in the US)
Since… it’s a wagon.
The Arteon starts at around $36 000 in the US. An AWD raised wagon option would probably be at least $4000 more. Still, about $5000 less than the Audi A4 Allroad. And so much better looking inside and out.
What do you think?

Do they still call it the “CC” in China? I see it under the VW logo in the 2nd pic.
beautiful design, would have made a nice alternative to the Subaru Outback, especially if they could bring it in at the same price…Outback Touring XT is ~$41K…
add a better warranty (to counteract the poor VW reliability image) and you have a winner!
I don't understand the lack of wagons even though I do understand the like of C + SUVs. Ceding the wagon market such as it is mostly to Subaru + Audi seems like there's a bit of room for more.
But, they (the Mfgs.) have to push that.
Much more attractive than the last VW wagon for the US. It's just too bad that wagons are premium priced.
That is one really good looking wagon!
VW is trying to blur the line with Audi by giving worse driving dynamics.
check out the configurator on vw.de to see the options and German pricing for the Arteon… the "regular" wagon starts at EU45K ~ $US 55K — that's before any options, color, awd, etc. I can't imagine how they would price this car competitively in the US even with the VAT refund the German government will give VW for exporting the car to the US
Subie excels but VW and Buick have failed mightily with this market. Too bad, I'd love to see more of 'em.
