Review

The Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake offers a stylish alternative to the Volkswagen Passat Estate, without losing very much at all in the way of practicality. It's really practical, well equipped, has a pleasant interior and a decent range of engines, including the company car tax-saving plug-in hybrid. It is a bit pricey, though, and the resale values aren't great next to some of the competition, so do make sure you get a hefty discount.

The range-topping diesel engine has a seven-speed automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive, 197bhp and hits 0-62mph in 7.9sec. Officially it averages over 50mpg.
