The 2020 Volkswagen Arteon is a more extended, more comprehensive care with a more modern design underneath its sleek, four-door-coupe body. If you walk around back, you’ll see that it’s a useful hatchback rather than a sedan.
What does Arteon mean?
The word “Arteon” is taken from the Latin word “Artem”, which means art. Volkswagen chose this name to emphasize the beautiful design of the car.
Engine and its Performance:
The power is supplied by a 268-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Two powerful engines, four-wheel drive and a seven-speed automatic DSG transmission that’s quick to respond results in some reasonably convincing performance.
As order change, available 4MOTION distributes power between the front and rear wheels as needed to help optimize traction and stability. The XDS Cross Differential System featured in the 2020 Arteon helps maintain control of the outside motors and improve turning performance.
Adaptive suspension dampers are standard and can adjust automatically to your driving style or be manually set to Comfort, Normal, or Sport. Regardless of the setting, the ride is smooth and controlled.
Front-drive Arteons are EPA-rated at 22/31mpg city/highway. With all-wheel drive, the ratings drop to 20/27mpg.
It ultimately trails its petrol model with a 0-62mph time of 6.5 seconds.
Interior and Cargo space:
There’s a lot to stare at inside!!
When it comes to technology, with an available Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, you can personalize your settings to highlight different information, including fullscreen navigation—all on an 8.0-inch display. 2020 VW Arteon is standard with Android Auto/Apple CarPlay smartphone integration and two USB ports.
It adds desirable features such as adaptive headlights, adaptive cruise control, a panoramic sunroof, and leather seating.
Additional connected features such as remote vehicle unlocking and emergency assistance are available with a Volkswagen Car-Net subscription.
The Arteon is hugely accommodating for 4 members, and decently comfortable for five. Rear seating is similarly providing, and there’s a noticeable increase in legroom compared with the Passat. The Arteon’s hatchback opens to reveal a generous 27 cubic feet of cargo dimension.
The Arteon is worth consideration, especially given its sub-$36,000 starting price.
The only significant difference between the 2019 and 2020 Arteon is the warranty. Volkswagen covers the 2019 model with a six-year/72,000-mile warranty, whereas 2020 models come with a four-year/50,000-mile warranty.
