The Volkswagen 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. It's not as dynamic to drive as a BMW 3 or 4 Series or as beautifully finished inside as an Audi A4 or A5, but it is comfortable, well equipped and relatively affordable to run as a private or company car. Just make sure you get a good deal if you're paying outright because the depreciation is worse than anything with a premium badge.

It's the entry-level trim but still well kitted out. Elegance comes with 18in alloy wheels, a rear-view camera, front and rear parking sensors, a powered tailgate, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control, three-zone climate control, keyless entry and power-folding door mirrors. Infotainment includes eight speakers, an 8.0in touchscreen, sat-nav and Apple CarPlay/ Android Auto, while safety features include blind-spot monitoring, e-Call, automatic emergency braking and lane assist.

This engine is currently not on sale but when it returns its a good option. The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine combines punchy performance from low revs with reasonable fuel economy for the available performance in the real world – mid-thirties MPG is easily achievable.
