Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) has opened its order books for the 2021 Volkswagen Arteon R-Line 4Motion. The locally-assembled model (from Pekan, Pahang) is expected to be priced between RM245k-RM255k when it launches.
Upon its launch, the 2021 Arteon R-Line 4Motion will become the sole variant and the flagship of the VW brand in Malaysia, replacing the Arteon R-Line first launched in August 2020 (which was priced at RM221,065).
It will be the first model in Malaysia to carry the new Volkswagen and R logos. Aesthetically, the R-Line package includes a redesigned front bumper and associated body trims for a sportier look. The R-Line 4Motion also notably comes with full LED headlights at the front and new LED 3D taillights with sequential indicators at the rear.
Under the hood lies Volkswagen’s 2.0L TSI turbocharged and direct-injected four-cylinder engine which outputs an impressive output of 280PS and torque of 350Nm between 5,100 to 6,500rpm. Power is sent through a 7-speed wet clutch direct shift gearbox (DSG) to all four wheels via the Arteon’s namesake 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. This gives the 2021 R-Line 4Motion a claimed 0-100km/h sprint time of 5.6 seconds.
On the inside, the 2021 Arteon’s highlights include a newly designed steering wheel with haptic touch controls, ErgoComfort sports seats in Nappa ‘Carbon Leather’ featuring the new R logo, and a premium Harman Kardon 700-watt 12-speaker audio system.
Instrumentation is covered by the customisable Volkswagen Digital Cockpit (as seen in the Passat), elsewhere the 9.2-inch Discover Pro infotainment systems now come with voice and gesture control as well as wireless App-Connect for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
In terms of safety, the 2021 R-Line 4Motion comes replete with 7-airbags, Lane Assist, Side Assist, Driver Alert System and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
The new 2021 Arteon R-Line 4Motion is available in five colours – metallic options are Lapiz Blue, Manganese Grey, Pyrite Silver, while pearl effect colours are Deep Black and Oryx White. Interested customer can make their bookings via the Volkswagen eShowroom.
