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.

get the best price

If you’re fond of life’s little luxuries, Elegance is worth a look. For a reasonable extra fee, you get larger 18in wheels, part leather seats that are heated up front, keyless entry and more advanced driver assistance features.

This 187bhp version is our pick because it combines punchy performance from low revs and 0-62mph in 7.9sec, with a reasonable real-world economy of between 35-40mpg.
