Feast your eyes on what in my opinion, is one of the sexiest shooting brake that is currently in production, the 2021 VW Arteon Shooting Brake R. The Arteon sedan was already a gorgeous piece of automotive art, to begin with, but now in this shooting brake iteration, it looks even more irresistible.
VW has given the exteriors of the Arteon Shooting Brake with the full ‘R’ treatment which, includes a reworked front bumper, dual LED headlights with daytime running lights, an LED light strip across the bottom of the front grille and towards the rear are four tailpipes integrated with the redesigned rear diffuser on the bumper. Also on offer are a set of 20-inch Estoril alloy wheels with the brake callipers finished off in a shade of blue. Even on the interiors, some ‘R’ spec treatment such as black carbon trim pieces, blue stitching on the seats, multi-functional steering wheel with a flat bottom and premium comfort seats covered in ArtVelours micro-fleece. Also, as an option are sports seats that is covered in Nappa leather.
Pop open the hood on the Arteon Shooting Brake R , and you can see the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged direct-injection engine that VW claims to be the most powerful in the EA888 engine family. It produces a power figure of 315bhp and 420Nm of torque, sending power to all four wheels via a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Well, all this said and done, VW has not hinted at getting this to India anywhere in the near future, so as of now, all I can do is sit and admire the picture of the Arteon Shooting Brake R, which I must point out again is one of the best looking family-focused vehicle that is currently in production anywhere across the globe.
