VW Arteon Is The Most Striking New Sedan on the Market

When the Volkswagen CC luxury sedan was retired in 2017 there was nary a whimper on the exit of this impressive but under-appreciated car. The new 2021 VW Arteon 2.0T SEL R-Line 4Motion seems positioned to fulfill the possibilities of its lineal predecessor … and add a fresh aura to the notion of a luxury VW and the relevance of sedans in an SUV world.

The $38,190 Arteon sports a striking new look with crisp accent lines and a dramatic sweeping profile headed up by a refreshed VW logo. The Arteon is traditional in its 4-door sedan format and modern in its technocratic sex appeal.

The $42,000 all wheel drive SEL R-Line gets the most out of the turbocharged 2.0 liter 4 cylinder 284 horsepower plant. The Arteon offers quick and agile road manners and a spirited if not thrilling driving experience.

Inside VW Arteon offers a premium touch and feel with a thick leather wrapped steering wheel, comfortable seating, and expansive social distancing interior space. Tech includes integrated wireless Apple Car Play and Android Auto, double USB ports, phone charging pad and Harman Kardon premium audio.
