Engine: 2.0 TSI 272
With a thumping 276bhp and a willingness to rev, this flagship petrol Arteon is properly fast, as its 0-62mph time of 5.6sec attests. What's more, its automatic gearbox shifts slickly on the move, even if it can be a little jerky at parking speeds. What counts against is its high purchase price.
