Used Volkswagen Arteon 2017-present review

Used Volkswagen Arteon 17-present
Review continues below...

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volkswagen Arteon hatchback?

The BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé isn’t as pricey as you might think. True, it isn’t quite as spacious in the back as the Arteon, but its infotainment is a little easier to use and it’s better fun to drive.

The Audi A5 Sportback is a little more expensive but more modern than the BMW, and it has an even smarter interior than the Arteon’s.

If you can live without the Arteon’s hatchback but fancy a car that looks terrific and feels fun to drive, try the Jaguar XE. It isn’t quite as well-finished inside, nor is it as spacious in the back seats, though.
