The Arteon Elegance offers premium class equipment and style
The R-Line puts even more sportiness at the heart of the Arteon
Epitomising sleek sophistication, the new Volkswagen Arteon is designed to stand out from every angle, and to perform with agility, power and poise. Connected, safe and comfy, it offers a drive that impresses in every aspect.
A long wheelbase and sweeping contours highlight the Arteon’s low, elongated stance, giving it a distinctive profile and a purposeful attitude. A wraparound bonnet and frameless side windows complement the coupé-style roofline, enhancing the aerodynamic feel, while a prominent front grille flanked by angular headlights creates an aggressive look. Finish the aesthetic to your taste with a choice of standout colours and alloy wheel designs.
Inside, the first thing you’ll notice is the sense of light and space. An optional panoramic sunroof floods the cabin with natural light, accentuating the generous head and legroom provided to both front and rear occupants. The 563-litre boot swallows all the essentials, and sumptuous materials throughout leave you in now doubt you’re traveling in style.
The Arteon’s range of petrol and diesel engines offers up plenty of choice when it comes to balancing performance with economy. If it’s power you’re looking for above all else, opt for the 2.0-litre 236bhp diesel, which can whisk you from 0-62mph in 6.5 seconds. The petrol variants, meanwhile, provide ample torque at low revs, making them ideal for urban driving.
You can also select between front-wheel drive and 4Motion all-wheel drive, depending on how versatile you need your Arteon to be. Both provide sharp handling and a sporty yet comfortable ride thanks to refined suspension.
As a premium vehicle, the Volkswagen Arteon has plenty to keep you satisfied when it comes to technology. First-class communication, audio and navigation comes courtesy of the cutting-edge media system, while the Active Info display enables you to customise the information and menus displayed on the 12.3-inch TFT screen.
Providing assistance and protection are a number of features including Lane Assist and Dynamic Light Assist, which help to prevent you straying from your lane unintentionally, and optimise visibility respectively. Optional Area View, meanwhile, feeds live images from around the vehicle into the cockpit, so you always know what’s going on from every angle.
