Introduction

What Car? says...

If you’re scratching your head over why the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake's name involves guns and car parts, allow us to explain. In the early years of the motorcar, shooting brakes were designed to carry all the paraphernalia for an upper-class shooting party because, at that time, most cars were distinctly lacking in boot space.

The Arteon Shooting brake, then, is designed to combine the good looks of a coupé with the load-lugging capacity of an estate car. The shapely roof means it has less space than a conventional 'station wagon' or estate car, but it’s a more spacious alternative to the (still rather practical) Volkswagen Arteon executive hatchback.

So, is the Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake a square peg in a round hole, or will it fit perfectly into your life? Read on to find out what it’s like to drive, how spacious it is, how it compares with its rivals and how big a dent it’ll put in your bank balance.

Speaking of which, don’t forget to check out the free What Car? New Car Buying service for some cracking prices on nearly every make and model of new car on sale, including lots of good VW Arteon deals.
