Used Volkswagen Arteon for sale
The Volkswagen Arteon is a striking hatchback that was introduced to offer a more upmarket alternative to the dependable Volkswagen Passat.
Whilst the Passat is recognised for being a fine all-rounder, it has never been renowned for being the most exciting car in existence. The Arteon changes that narrative with an elegant exterior appearance and a variety of punchy engines.
There are a variety of reasons you should consider a used Arteon, which include:
- Stunning appearance
- Spacious cabin
- Excellent choice of engines
- Quality interior design
- Loaded with safety features and driver aids
Engines and Driving Experience
The Arteon offers a great blend of performance and comfort, making it a great choice if you want a solid all-round driving experience. A BMW 4 Series offers a sharper drive, but doesn't provide the same levels of refinement as the Arteon.
Petrol / Hybrid
- 1.5-litre: 148bhp, 0 to 62mph in 9.5 seconds, up to 44.8mpg
- 2.0-litre: 187bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.7 seconds, up to 40.9mpg
- 2.0-litre R: 316bhp, 0 to 62mph in 4.9 seconds, up to 30.7mpg
- 1.4-litre plug-in hybrid: 187bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.7 seconds, up to 256.3mpg
- 2.0-litre: 148bhp, 0 to 62mph in 9.5 seconds, up to 64.2mpg
- 2.0-litre: 197bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.9 seconds, up to 53.9mpg
In addition to the above, the Arteon is available with 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a slick DSG automatic gearbox.
Practicality and Running Costs
The Arteon is a relatively large car, and this reflects in the amount of head and legroom available inside. ISOFIX anchor points are present in the rear seats, so fitting a child's seat will be straightforward.
The majority of models will be a hatchback, although a shooting brake is available (it's basically an estate). With 563 litres on offer, the hatchback's boot crushes the likes of the Audi A5 Sportback, which only offers 465 litres of space. The shooting brake offers a larger, 590-litre boot should you need the extra practicality.
Occupying insurance groups between 21 and 33 (out of 50), annual premiums shouldn't be too expensive, which is a welcome benefit when you consider the nature of the Arteon. Affordable servicing and maintenance is available through all Evans Halshaw retailers.
Interior, Technology and Safety
It may not be the most flamboyant, but the Arteon's interior is a classy affair that's enhanced by a variety of quality materials. A glossy infotainment system takes centre stage, offering effortless navigation of the menus, which are all clearly laid out.
There aren't many models to choose from, but they're all generously equipped either way. Three-zone climate control, adaptive cruise control and LED exterior lighting are all standard features. Other gadgets, such as heated front seats, a powered tailgate and a rear-view camera are also available.
The Arteon scored five-stars in the Euro NCAP safety tests, performing well for adult and child occupancy protection. Standard safety features and driver aids include:
- Autonomous emergency braking
- Lane-keeping assistance
- Hill start assist
- ESC (Electronic Stability control) and electromechanical brake booster
- PreCrash preventive occupant protection
Is the Volkswagen Arteon right for me?
If you're looking for an elegant hatchback - or shooting brake - that offers strong performance and has a broad range of safety features, then the Volkswagen Arteon will likely appeal. Being a Volkswagen, you know you'll be investing in a quality used car, which should provide peace of mind.
The Arteon occupies a segment that's more niche than others, but it does have rivals. The Audi A5 Sportback is an exceptional vehicle that offers a more upmarket interior, while the BMW 4 Series provides a more engaging driving experience.
