Just like that, Volkswagen is hopping on the Geneva hype train in unveiling their all new Arteon five-seater that head designer Klaus Bischoff claims, “…combines the design elements of a classic sports car with the elegance and space of a fastback.” Sounds like a winning combination to us, and after looking at the initial images of this thing, it looks like one too.

Featured under the hood of this ride are several turbocharged engine options with outputs up to 276 horsepower. It’s also slated to be built upon their MBQ platform, which comes standard on other offerings including the Golf and the new Atlas SUV. 4Motion all-wheel drive will come standard with these as well, as will as a set of LED headlights, a newly designed front end, and upgraded Discover Pro infotainment system with gesture control. The ride will also be made available with a diesel engine for those looking to up their fuel efficiency. They’re set to go on sale in Europe this June. No word on pricing just yet.
