Volkswagen wants to conquer the premium middle segment market. For this they´ve created the all new Arteon. Mission accomplished or is it a fail?

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) 00:00 Emergency Assist 01:44 Proactive Occupant Protection System 03:15 Review New generation of assistance systems The Arteon's innovative driver assistance systems match its avant-garde concept. Significantly updated new generation versions of seven of these systems are available on the new gran turismo: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Active Lighting System, Emergency Assist, proactive occupant protection system, Side Assist lane change system including Lane Assist lane departure warning, Rear Traffic Alert, and traffic sign recognition (which now also warns when speed limits are exceeded). Additional technologies adapted from other Volkswagens include the park distance warning, park assist steering, Rear View reversing camera system and Area View surround view camera. A detailed look at key assistance systems: Active Lighting System The gran turismo comes with LED headlights for the dipped and main beams as standard. The Arteon Elegance and Arteon R-Line also feature Light Assist automatic main beam control (camera-based system which automatically activates and deactivates the main beam in response to oncoming traffic). These two models can be optionally equipped with the Active Lighting System. The LED dual headlights perfectly illuminate the upcoming bend before the vehicle is even steered into it. Here's how it works: the Active Lighting System - a technology package - utilises LED dual headlights with so-called projector lenses and incorporates among other features Dynamic Light Assist, the dynamically regulated permanent main beam function (interactive permanent main beam as an extended function of Light Assist) and dynamic cornering lights with predictive beam control. The latter steers the headlights into bends according to steering angle by means of variably controlled headlight modules. New with this feature is the ability to do this independently of steering angle and even predictively, using video information from the front camera and route information from the navigation system. In this manner, the gran turismo is able to illuminate the upcoming bend in the road before the driver steers into it. What's more, the light pattern of the headlights is optimally adjusted to suit the radius of the curve, because light is not wasted illuminating the roadside. Side Assist plus Lane Assist and Rear Traffic Alert The Arteon comes with the Lane Assist lane departure warning system as standard. If the gran turismo is ordered with the optional Side Assist lane change system, which is activated from 10 km/h, the two systems are combined. In this case, Rear Traffic Alert will also be on board. The Side Assist package can help prevent serious accidents, particularly in the following two situations. First, on the motorway, because it detects both fast overtaking vehicles and slower ones in the blind spot, warns the driver and even countersteers via Lane Assist. The second situation relates to reversing out of a parking space: the sensors detect vehicles approaching from the side that are not visible to the driver. Traffic Jam Assist Volkswagen developed Traffic Jam Assist based on Lane Assist (lane departure warning system) and ACC. It is available for models with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG). The system makes traffic jams and stop-and-go driving much more comfortable. The interplay between assistance systems enables the new car to drive semi-autonomously at speeds up to 60 km/h. The basis for this system is Lane Assist and its functionality of adaptive lane guidance. The second assistance system integrated into Traffic Jam Assist is ACC, which performs automatic acceleration and braking. "2017 Test Drive CC" "SUBSCRIBE NOW"
2018 BMW 5 Series Review The 2018 BMW 5 Series is fast, comfortable and overflowing with technology. The 2018 BMW 5 Series lives up to the expectations set by its forebears. There's an engine for nearly every taste, and the car's handling capabilities are fundamentally sound. Factor in the 5 Series' latest tech and safety features, and you've got a prime pick for a midsize luxury sedan. BMW redesigned its 5 Series last year, giving the car updated styling and a bit more interior room without increasing weight. This year brings more changes, too. The 2018 5 Series has three new powertrain options: a plug-in hybrid (530e), a six-cylinder diesel engine (540d) and a twin-turbo V8 (M550i) that puts the car very close to BMW M5 territory. We were already fans of the base 530i and the 540i, so these additions carry an added benefit, whether it be the efficiency of the 530e and the 540d or the muscular power of the M550i. On the technology front, BMW continues to push the envelope, offering wireless Apple CarPlay integration, natural language voice recognition, and even a cool 3-D simulation of your car from the outside (you have to see to believe) by using the optional surround-view cameras. And as far as modern driver assist aids go, BMW's are among the best. Of course, there are other luxury sedans you should consider, including the Audi A6, the Lexus GS and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. We think highly of the 5 Series within this group, though, and it earns a solid recommendation. what's new Three new 5 Series variants join the lineup for 2018: the 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid, the 540d xDrive six-cylinder diesel, and the range-topping M550i xDrive with its turbocharged V8. The 5 Series also gets some minor shuffling of options and packages this year. we recommend You'll very likely be content with the power from the 530i, but the extra power and more engaging sound of BMW's turbocharged six-cylinder make the 540i the 5 Series worth paying a little more for. In either case, we think the Driver Assistance Plus package, which adds a number of active safety features, is a must-have. We'd also add the Premium package to get keyless entry, heated seats and hands-free trunk opening. trim levels & features The 2018 BMW 5 Series is a five-passenger sedan available in five trim levels, all with different powertrains. The 530i (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) and the 530e iPerformance plug-in hybrid (248 hp, 310 lb-ft) are powered by variants of BMW's turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. Next are two six-cylinders: The 540i (335 hp, 332 lb-ft) gets a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, and the 540d (261 hp, 457 lb-ft) has a 3.0-liter inline-six diesel. At the top of the range is the M550i with its turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 (456 hp, 480 lb-ft). BMW's all-wheel drive, called xDrive, is an option on the 530i, the 530e and the 540i. It's standard on the 540d and the M550i. An eight-speed automatic is standard across the board. trim tested Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2017 BMW 530i (turbo 2.0L inline-4 | 8-speed automatic | RWD). driving If the driving experience is truly important to you, then the 530i is a sedan to consider. With the exception of upgraded brakes, this BMW doesn't rely on sheer horsepower or road grip to sling it around corners. What you get instead is a package that feels extremely well-rounded, which is better. comfort The 530i is a supremely comfortable car with impressive climate control features, highly adjustable and massaging seats, and a whisper-quiet, soft-riding cabin. The only issue we had with the climate system is its capacity to keep us properly chilled. interior The 530i's cabin is an excellent place to spend time as long as you aren't a tall rear passenger. The controls are as easy as they can be, but the countless functions take time to learn. Climbing in and out is a breeze, and between the camera aids and windows, there's no worry about blind spots. utility The 530i has a fairly generous trunk with flexible cargo configurations thanks to the 40/20/40-split folding rear seat. In-cabin storage has improved over previous years, and the car seat anchors are easily accessible. The amount of backseat space is the only concern for larger car seats. technology BMW is a technology juggernaut and one of the more aggressive manufacturers when it comes to innovative features. Most of them are useful, while some are cool parlor tricks, but we appreciate them all. But iDrive's character recognition may be getting too smart for its own good.

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, the marque's new fastback flagship in the U.S. designed to offer the space and amenities of a midsize luxury sedan, made its North American debut at the Chicago Auto Show this week. Positioned above the Passat in the VW lineup, the Arteon will replace the CC sedan.
Based on the MQB architecture shared with models like the new Atlas, the Arteon is longer and wider than the CC sedan -- the wheelbase alone tops the CC by more than 5 inches -- but features shorter overhangs front and back. Volkswagen aimed for a sleeker and sharper look when it came to exterior design, while also giving the Arteon more interior space. The new sedan's exterior visually communicates luxury through details such as chrome window surrounds, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, LED headlights and a wide chrome grille while also featuring sportier, coupe-like elements such as frameless side windows and dual trapezoidal exhaust tips. In short, the Arteon aims to take the style of the outgoing CC a step further while also offering improved accommodations for its passengers, creating a standalone model quite different in packaging from the long-serving Passat.
When it comes to performance, the 2019 Arteon will debut with a turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-liter TSI engine, good for 268 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission sending power to the front wheels or four wheels when coupled with Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel drive. Standard on all trim levels will be the DCC adaptive damping system that manages the suspension's compression and rebound rates to improve dynamics.
Inside, the Arteon will feature an 8-inch infotainment screen as standard, while offering the Volkswagen Digital Cockpit as an option. When it comes to interior options the Arteon will also offer a panoramic sunroof, Dynaudio premium sound system and a powered trunk lid which can be opened by the driver with a motion of the foot under the rear bumper. In terms of safety tech the Arteon will feature a blind spot monitor, forward collision warning and autonomous emergency braking as standard items, in addition to optional safety features like active land lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control with stop and go (for traffic jams), an overhead view camera, parking steering assistance and automatic post-collision braking, in addition to other available items.
"The Arteon is Volkswagen’s brand shaper," said Hinrich J. Woebcken, CEO of Volkswagen's North American Region. "This car is the spiritual successor to the CC, but it is bolder and faster. Arteon has the style and performance of a luxury Gran Turismo for about the price of a fully loaded midsize sedan."
Expect to see the Arteon on sale starting in late fall of 2018. Pricing for the three trim levels -- SE, SEL and SEL Premium -- will be announced closer to the start of sales.
