Check out our latest VW Arteon in-depth review:


The Volkswagen Arteon is the car which the German brand  hopes will lift it into the premium segment. The swoopy styling will set the standard for future VWs, but under the skin it’s all familiar - the platform is shared with the Passat. So does the stylish frock make the Arteon worth considering over an Audi A5 Sportback or a BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe? Find out in my detailed review, where I comment on its quality, take a look at its tech, and work out if it feels expensive enough from behind the wheel.

      Love the way it looks but the engine choices are shieeeeeeettttttttt. A hot 450+ bhp version would be pretty damn sweet.

      I don’t understand, most reviewers compare VW to Audi, Mercedes and BMW but still say “it’s a VW, it’s not premium”, then wtf are you all still making the comparison? It’s like you want to include VW in this holly trinity of premium brands but not at the same time just to bully VW, it’s kinda stupid in my opinion 🙄

      I think vw did a huge mistake ditching the Passat next year. Arteon is not a way to ho. Passat is a classic and Arteon is a new class vehicle. Its only a matter of trend.

      “Forget about the badge”, so we get to the German car and you ask that, what about the KIA?

      Oval Oh tell me please, have you ever driven a KIA Stinger? And the fact it has poor sales figures just proves my point that car snobs like you clearly only care about the badge. And just for the record, I’m a lover of older British classics, I was just making a point... 😃

      The Stinger isn’t a good car and it’s a sales disaster as well. Fanboys of Asian brands somehow manage to be more unbearable than German brand fanboys.
