It’s a little pricey but the VW Arteon is good to drive, stylish and amazingly practical next to other coupés and even some saloons in the class

get the best price

Trim: Elegance

This mid-level trim is incredibly well equipped: LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, 18in alloy wheels, four-way electric lumbar support, swish ambient interior lighting, nappa leather seat trim, front and rear climate control, heated front seats, a 12.3in digital instrument display, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition are all standard. Meanwhile, on the infotainment side, you get an 8.0in touchscreen with a DAB radio, Bluetooth, sat-nav, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an SOS emergency call response and online connectivity for live traffic, weather and parking space availability.

Engine: 2.0 TDI 190

With 187bhp, this engine is noticeable faster than the 148bhp diesel when you rev it, but it doesn't feel significantly stronger when you just rely on the engine's torque, as you might when overtaking on the motorway.
