The new Volkswagen Arteon certainly impresses with its eye-catching exterior and sumptuous and roomy cabin. The vehicle is well equipped too – and affordable to run. The very name ‘Arteon’ is derived from ‘artem’, a Latin word for ‘art’, which is most appropriate in this fastback saloon’s case.
The Arteon’s finely contoured and sleek body boasts a coupé-like roofline, while a tapering bonnet provides the car with a purposeful look. A smart-looking tailgate spoiler is one of many distinguishing rear-fascia features. The Arteon rides on conspicuous 18-inch Muscat Black alloy wheels too. Plus it’s adorned with lavish amounts of chrome, on window surrounds, lower door sections, radiator grille and elsewhere. The same material is used to surround the vehicle’s smartly fashioned front and rear LED lights too, each of which provide vivid illumination.
The Arteon is ideal for families and businesses that enjoy high-end comfort and quality. A lavish interior provides plenty of space for four adults, particularly in regards to knee and headroom. While the Arteon is exceptionally comfortable, it is also manages to make space for a not-inconsiderable 563-litre boot, ensuring that no luggage gets left behind.
