What used Volkswagen Arteon hatchback will I get for my budget?
It's possible to pick up one of the first 2017 Arteons, especially if it be the 2.0 TSI petrol model, for around £18,000, this for a car with a moderate mileage for the year and a full service history, bought from an independent dealer. Up this to between £20,000 and £23,000 for a choice of good 2018 cars. Spend between £23,000 and £25,000 on a 2019 model, and a little more for a 2020 one.

How much does it cost to run a Volkswagen Arteon hatchback?
Not much at all. The most efficient Arteons – those equipped with the 148bhp diesel engine – have an official average fuel consumption figure of 65.7mpg according to the new, more realistic test regime. But all Arteons are pretty efficient; the 187bhp diesel recorded an average figure of 61.4mpg in tests, while even the 2.0-litre 187bhp petrol hit 47.1mpg.
How much your Arteon will cost to tax will depend on how much it cost when it was new. If it was less than £40,000, including options, it’ll be £150 a year. However, if it was over that threshold, that figure increases to £475 a year, at least from years two to six. That's all the more reason to go for a lower-spec example, which will have been cheaper when it was new.
Servicing costs, meanwhile, shouldn’t be too extortionate; you’ll pay less to maintain your Arteon than you will an A5 Sportback or 4 Series Gran Coupé.
