How it copes with people and clutter

Is there a coupé that's as roomy as the Volkswagen Arteon? It's hard to think of one. It has loads of space up front, with at least as much head and leg room as you’ll find in rivals such as the Audi A5 Sportback and BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé. And the interior is wide enough to provide plenty of elbow room and has lots of storage solutions thrown in.

But it’s in the rear where the Arteon really scores over its rivals. Admittedly, as is the case with all of these four-door coupés, the sloping roofline takes its toll on rear head room but this is relative – taller rear passengers will find their heads not far from the headlining but it still has enough. The amount of rear leg room offered is vast – much more than you get in any of its rivals, especially the Jaguar XE. You can easily fit three adults abreast in the back of the Arteon, too.
