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: R Line

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.

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.
