Volkswagen Arteon — TIMING CHAIN OR BELT?


| Home / Volkswagen / List of Volkswagen Arteon Models without Timing Belt

The Volkswagen Arteon is a high-end fastback car (D-segment in Europe). It is the successor to the CC (or Volkswagen Passat CC), and was presented at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. It was primarily marketed with Fastback bodywork. In 2020, a Shooting Brake, plug-in Hybrid, and Sporty versions of the Volkswagen R Line variant were added for the first time along with a facelift of the original model.

The current generation —the only one so far— is based on the Volkswagen Group’s MQB platform. Some of its competitors are the Audi A5, the Ford Mondeo, Peugeot 508, Kia Stinger GT, Alfa Romeo Giulia, the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the BMW 4 Series.

Volkswagen Arteon. Timing Belt or Timing Chain?

Down below you will see a list with all Volkswagen Arteon models that have been produced. They are classified by model identifier, year and type of bodywork. Above each list, we show you a series of pictures so that you can have a visual reference for each model. In some cases, both the original and its updated design are displayed to help you identify them with ease.

In this guide you will find all Volkswagen Arteon models:

  • Fastback,
  • and Shooting Brake (Station Wagon).

■ Timing Belt / Cam Belt (Correa / Faja de Distribución)
■ Timing Chain (Cadena de Distribución / Cadena de Tiempo)
■ Gear Driven (Distribución por Engranajes)
100% Electric, No Timing (Sin Distribución)

If a car model is specified in blue, it means its motor engine has a timing chain; that is, it has no timing belt. The rest of the vehicles marked in grey have a timing belt/cam belt.
