The Arteon is the luxury flagship saloon in the 2018 Volkswagen line up, taking the place of the Passat CC model. By taking one of the best executive saloons in the form of the Passat and giving it a much needed dose of sartorial elegance, the brand has enhanced it's visual appeal meaning it can now compete not only on the strength of its mechanicals but also on outright style with the likes of its sister car the Audi A5 Sportback and the BMW 4 series GranCoupe. It's longer, wider and lower than it's Passat beginnings, and shares it's most powerful engines. You can have the 2.0 diesel model, either in the 150 or 187 horsepower but for real go look to the BiTDI diesel with 237 horsepower and a huge mid range shove in the back, or one of the two turbocharged petrol engines - both reworkings of the engine found in the fantastic Golf GTI and R. The 276 bhp range topper feels properly fast with a 0-60 time of just over 5 seconds, giving you the performance to match the striking looks. 4Motion 4 wheel drive is also available if you need your Arteon to be able to handle inclement weather.
Spec levels are fantastic - there is no real entry-level model, so the Elegance and R-Line trims are both very well equipped with things like the Active Info display as standard which whould set you back £1,400 in the equivalent A5 car. Rear seat space and the boot are both cavernous - and a better shape than the Passats.
