Volkswagen has revealed the first details of its new flagship sedan. Or is it a four-door coupe? Or a hatchback?

Whatever it is, the German brand has issued a sketch of the car that will essentially replace the swoopy Passat CC and confirming it will introduce a new badge called Arteon.

The sketch showcases a silhouette similar to the Sport Coupe Concept GTE that was revealed at the Geneva motor show earlier this year, with a curved clamshell bonnet defining its front-end and a lowered roofline that tapers into a hatchback giving the Arteon a unique appearance.

Volkswagen has admitted the car shares its mechanical underpinnings with the latest-generation Passat sedan and will be offered in Australia in one high level of specification, using the same 206kW 2.0-litre four cylinder engine mated to an all-wheel drive transmission as the incoming range-topping Passat sedan and wagon models.

It will also come standard with 19-inch alloy wheels, LED matrix headlights, Nappa leather trim, a 9.2-inch touch screen infotainment system, ventilated front seats, Volkswagen's fully-digital dash (dubbed Active Info Display) and the company's first head-up display.

Volkswagen says the name is derived from Art, which describes the car's lines, and Eon, which, even if it doesn't translate correctly, positions it among the flagship models from the German brand such as the Phaeton limousine.

The Arteon is due to be make its public debut in final production form at the 2017 Geneva motor show in March, with Australian deliveries scheduled to begin from around October next year.

Final price and specifications will be locked in closer to its arrival, but it is anticipated the Arteon will command a starting price in the $60,000 bracket, putting it up against genuine luxury compact sedans such as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, BMW 3-Series and the A4 from sister brand Audi.
