However, and if we pay special attention to the front bumper, we will realize that some strange temporary elements have been incorporated. It’s about the new sensors that will be used by driving assistance systems that will incorporate the new Arteon.
volkswagen it has no intention of excessively changing the exterior design. It is true that there will be cosmetic tweaks, but we should not expect big surprises. The evolution will be very small. Just what is necessary to transmit a fresher and more modern image. The really important thing will be inside.
