New Volkswagen Arteon


The well-built, practical and sleek Volkswagen Arteon delivers a comfortable and refined ride while offering plenty of space for passengers and luggage alike. This adept motorway cruiser comes generously equipped as standard too.

Vehicle variants

Elegance and R-Line trims are available with a petrol, diesel or plug-in hybrid drivetrain while the top-tier R grade’s petrol powertrain is designed for optimal performance.

    Interior Despite its coupé-style profile, the Volkswagen Arteon is bigger on the inside than you might expect. Certainly, it offers more passenger and cargo capacity than either the Audi A5 Sportback or the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé.
      Family friendly Four-door access and a five-seat cabin help make the Arteon a genuine family car proposition. Front and back, the car offers generous amounts of knee and legroom, and plenty of headroom too, even for rear-seat passengers. Moreover, there are numerous places to put drinks and the like: large cup-holders in the front compartment and front and rear door bins that easily swallow 1.5-litre bottles, for instance.
      Superb luggage capacity A 563-litre boot should more than suffice for everyday use – it’s certainly more than is offered by the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé or Audi A5 Sportback’s 480-litre alternative. Access to the boot is made simple too, thanks to a hatchback-style tailgate.
      Infotainment and safety An eight-speaker sound system (with DAB radio) and a minimum-size eight-inch touchscreen are present and correct. Also featured are Discover Media navigation, USB-C inputs, Bluetooth connectivity, voice activation and wireless smartphone integration.

      Rated a full-five stars by Euro NCAP, the Arteon is loaded with safety tech, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Hill-start Assist, a multifunction front-facing camera and front and rear parking sensors.
      Plug-in hybrid efficiency While delivering a maximum 39-mile electric range, a plug-in hybrid powertrain (available with Elegance and R-Line grades) returns more than 200mpg. It also ensures that the Arteon is exempt from Clean Air Zone tariffs, including the ULEZ charge.
      Exterior The Volkswagen Arteon is a smart-looking hatchback that stands out from the pack thanks to its atypical coupé-like silhouette.
        Alloy wheels The Arteon rides on 18-inch Almere Adamantium Silver alloy wheels as standard. R-Line and R trims, meanwhile, ride on larger, 19-inch versions – Adelaide Black and diamond-turned alloys in the latter’s case.
        Lighting your way Automatic LED High Beam Assist headlights make certain that the way ahead is always clearly illuminated. LED daytime running lights, meanwhile, ensure that the Arteon is clearly visible to other road users, and the same can be said of clearly identifiable LED taillights.
        Keyless entry The Arteon offers easy access – but only to the person who’s in possession of the key. As long as you have it about your person, you’ll enjoy keyless entry and ignition, as well as keyless locking – and SAFELOCK technology that makes the car harder to break into.
        Choose your colour The Volkswagen Arteon is provided with a classy Moonstone Grey finish at no extra cost. If you fancy something a little different, a range of optional colours include Mother-of-Pearl Oryx, White Premium, Deep Black Pearl, Kingfisher Blue Metallic and King’s Red Premium Metallic.
