Motoring: VW comes up trumps with latest Arteon

It’s not the cheapest, but Volkswagen’s newest model gets more impressive the higher up the specification ladder you go

The new Volkswagen Arteon: prices start from just over €50,000

The Arteon is the range-topping car, as opposed to the SUV, of the Volkswagen line-up. Though it shares much of its underpinnings and hardware with other models in the range, including the Passat, its pricing – north of €50,000 – makes it clear that it’s a different proposition.

This year, Volkswagen added variety to the Arteon badge by introducing a “shooting brake” estate, and a new plug-in hybrid model called the eHybrid, as evaluated here.
