Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
Both Arteon variants are offered here with four revised turbocharged four-cylinder engines. All get front-wheel drive and, in most cases, the choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. But it's the new eHybrid driven here that's of greatest interest to most customers. It uses the plug-in hybrid drivetrain of the Passat GTE, with a 154bhp 1.4-litre petrol engine and 113bhp gearbox-mounted electric motor. Energy for this is provided by a 13.0kWh battery mounted in the boot floor, yielding an electric-only range of up to 33 miles at speeds up to 87mph.

Sentiment Score[*] 52%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The Arteon R Shooting Brake will present as an all-weather Audi S4 stalker. Engine-wise there remain the same four-cylinder TSI and TDI stalwarts. Front-wheel drive is also the order of the day, except on the 197bhp 2.0-litre TDI.

Pros[**]

Sentiment Score[*] 63%
Reviewers from Cnet have found the following[***]:
The Volkswagen Arteon is one of the slowest-selling cars from a mainstream automaker. Volkswagen is giving it a number of thoughtful updates for 2021. Restyled 18- and 20-inch wheels are available, and a couple extra paint colors are on the docket.

Pros[**]
  • More fuel-efficient than its predecessor
  • Comfortable, comfortable ride
  • Lots of driver-assistance features
