Review

There’s no doubting that the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake is a more practical alternative to its hatchback sibling. Not only is boot capacity increased substantially, there’s also more head room for rear seat passengers. It’s not as classy inside as premium rivals, and not as practical as the best estates out there, however it’s still a spacious and comfortable alternative to a dowdy old wagon.

get the best price

This sporty-looking trim ditches the fancy suspension and driver assistance features of Elegance for 19in wheels, racier bumpers, tinted windows and a sunroof. One to avoid.

We’ve not sampled this engine in the Arteon Shooting Brake, but it can feel a little weedy in the Skoda Superb Estate when it’s loaded up to the roof. That suggests to us that one of the punchier engines will be a better fit.
