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

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 TSI

If you don't want a diesel, this turbocharged 2.0-litre is the Arteon to choose, offering a useful step up in performance over the 1.5, while keeping costs sensible.
