2021 Volkswagen Arteon R spied

Volkswagen appears to be working on a powered-up version of its Arteon four-door coupe. A prototype snapped with big wheels and brakes, and an angry-looking exhaust system, is a strong indicator the car could get a proper performance flagship to sit above the 206TSI R-Line. The biggest indicators as to the Arteon's performance potential is the bigger brakes. The oversized rotors are drilled and the calipers are blue, the latter of which is a Golf R calling card.

2016-18 Volkswagen Arteon, Passat recalled

Volkswagen has recalled a handful of 2016-18 Passat and Arteon models, over concerns about the panoramic sunroof. According to the company, certain models with a panoramic sunroof could have a bonded joint that's been installed or repaired with the incorrect primer. That could make the sunroof trim panel detach from the sunroof frame, increasing the risk of accident.

Volkswagen Passat 206TSI sedan axed

The Volkswagen Passat 206TSI R-Line sedan has been dropped from the line-up, leaving just the wagon with the top-shelf powertrain option. Speaking with CarAdvice, Volkswagen Australia's public relations and brand experience manager, Kurt McGuinness, confirmed the changes, citing the introduction of the Arteon four-door coupe as the cause. "The 206TSI Passat sedan has ceased production to reduce model complexity, given the arrival of the Arteon 206TSI," he said.
