5 Quick Facts About the Volkswagen Arteon

Another car that will be gracing the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March is the Volkswagen Arteon. More than a week before the big event, Volkswagen released the teaser images of the car through a sketch as well as closeup look at its front grille and taillights.

1. About the Car’s Name

The Volkswagen Arteon’s name is derived from the words “art” and “eon”. “Art” points out to the stylish lines and curves of the car. On the other hand, “eon” refers to its status as a premium model.

2. Arteon in the Volkswagen Hierarchy

According to a report, the Volkswagen Arteon is referred to by its maker as a fastback. The auto is the successor of the CC sedan and a notch above the Passat midsize sedan. The car is based on the Sport Coupe GTE Concept shown in the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

3. Design of the Arteon

As seen in the spy photos, the Volkswagen Arteon sports a futuristic design. The headlamps appear to be integrated in both ends of the car’s radiator grille. VW claimed that the Arteon will possess their latest generation of driver assistance systems while the front and back lighting system come in LED.

Despite the compact styling of the fastback, VW said that the vehicle offers a spacious interior. That is thanks to the MQB platform of the auto, which was adapted from the Passat. Expect the same level of interior elements and tech from the Passat to be carried over to the Arteon too.

4. Engine

The US market-bound Arteon might be equipped with a 2.0-liter TSI engine with an output of more than 270 bhp. It should be noted though that the test mules of the car that we have seen so far in a series of spy shots were using a watered down version of the engine with 190 bhp. All that power is distributed via a 7-speed DSG dual clutch automatic gearbox.

5. Competition

The Arteon aims to rival the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe when it comes out of the market.

5 Things to Expect From the Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet

Der neue Mercedes-Maybach G 650 Landaulet: Streng limitiert: Open-Air-Luxus on- und offroad

After the revival of Maybach, now as a sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz known as Mercedes-Maybach, it used to focus only on the S-Class. Later on, a concept car exclusive to that name was released.

Recently, it was revealed that the G-Class is also getting the same treatment. The Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet will be introduced at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March.

It should be noted that Mercedes-Benz teased the landaulet around two weeks ago. But shortly following the teaser image came a leak of the vehicle without any camouflage, which probably forced its maker to prematurely unveil the auto before it even reached Geneva.

Here are the 5 major features of the new Mercedes-Maybach landaulet:

1. Design

The Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet follows the styling cues of the Mercedes-AMG G 63 6×6 and its successor, the Mercedes-Benz G 500 4×42. However, the hard roofing in the rear portion of the vehicle has been replaced with a retractable fabric roofing to allow the passengers to enjoy an open air ride.

2. Measurements

The Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet is 5,345 millimeters long with 3,428 millimeters wheelbase and it is 2,235 millimeters high. It has a ground clearance of nearly half a meter.

3. Capacity

The G-Class landaulet from Mercedes-Maybach can accommodate up to four passengers. The rear seats can be fully-reclined for the utmost comfort of its occupants. Aside from the high-end leather surfaces of the auto, it also has massage functions and neck-level heating system.

4. Engine

The Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet carries a V12 biturbo engine like the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class models. The output of the unit is 630 hp with 1,000 Nm of torque. Mercedes-Benz claimed that the vehicle has a combined fuel consumption of 17.0 l/100 km and its combined CO2 emissions is 397 g/km.

5. Exclusivity

The G-Class Landaulet under Mercedes-Maybach will only be produced in 99 samples to keep its exclusivity.

Top 4 Features of the Aston Martin DB11 Q

aston martin db11 q (11)

The Aston Martin DB11 Q will be showcased at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show in March. The car is the tailored version of the DB11 that was released in 2016. It should be noted that the DB11 is the successor of the DB9.

Check out the 4 key features of the car below according on a source:

1. Exterior

The Aston Martin DB11 Q comes in Zaffre Blue. The paint job features an exclusive finish which gives an illusion that it changes its colors based on the lighting present in its environment. The wheel is also finished in blue to match the car’s body color. Then the front splitter, sills at the side, rear diffuser, bonnet lines, mirror caps, badges, and hubcaps are all made from carbon fiber materials.

2. Interior

The interior surfaces of the DB11 Q is covered in Obsidian Black semi-aniline leather. The same Zaffre Blue theme is used to give more details to the linings of the seats, side panels and to the stitching found in the car’s dashboard. Of course, there are a couple of “Q” badges inside to highlight the special identity of the auto.

3. Engine

The DB11 Q is powered by a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine. The unit can produce up to 600 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The numbers allow the auto to accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds. Its top speed is electronically-limited at 200 mph.

4. Pricing

Aston Martin didn’t release specific information about the cost of the DB11 Q. That’s because the pricing of the car depends on the specifications set by the customer to it. But as a reference, the base model of the vehicle is around $211,995, so buyers should expect to pay more than that.
