Review

The VW Arteon is good to drive, stylish and amazingly practical when considered in the company of other coupés, and even some saloons in the executive car class

get the best price

This sportier trim adds larger 19in alloy wheels, rear privacy glass, contrasting seat stitching with carbonfibre-effect seat trim and R-line styling details inside and out.

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.
