Volkswagen has unveiled the new Arteon, which doesn’t just come with the expected facelift and a host of new features, because it has also been upgraded by the manufacturer’s R division and now comes as a shooting brake, too.

The Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake R is the more design-focused, yet bigger and practical version in the line-up, compared to the standard “fastback” saloon offering. In R form, both the shooting brake and saloon come equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine producing 316 HP and 310 lb-ft. of torque from 2,000 RPM, which is sent to all four wheels.

As with most VW R models, the top speed can be expected to be limited to 155 MPH. No official information on a 0-60 MPH time has been unveiled. The new R offerings also come with R-Performance Torque Vectoring, which is able to split torque between all four wheels for better handling.

The cars sit on 20-inch rims that house the R-spec brakes, and have other sporty touches such as a quad-exit exhaust, tinted taillights, and more aggressive bumpers that are finished with larger grilles and a LED light feature at the front under the badge. Both the Arteon “fastback” saloon and the shooting brake come in standard form, R trim, and as a plug-in e-hybrid.

Take a closer look at the R-spec models above, and expect the car to be available sometime later this year at Volkswagen dealerships.
