The much-anticipated 2021 Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake – a wagon with a sloped, coupe-like roofline – has been found out in public, Chinese publication Autohome has revealed.

At its unveiling last month, Volkswagen announced the Arteon R would be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-cylinder producing 235kW, coupled with a dual-clutch automatic transmission (DSG).

Parked on a street in Germany, these pictures provide a glimpse of how the flagship Volkswagen will look in the real world.

While Volkswagen Australia confirmed the four-door coupe version of the Arteon will come to our shores, there's no word yet on the wagon.

When leaked pictures of the Arteon Alltrack emerged in June, a spokesperson for Volkswagen Australia told CarAdvice: "We’re open to the idea of additional variants".

In January, the local arm of the German manufacturer expressed an interest in the wagon variant, saying at the time: "If such a thing were to be made available, it would certainly be of interest to us in Australia".
