The fancy new VW Arteon is the company’s new luxury flagship sedan, a fact reflected in its price tags. The order books are now open for the Arteon in the United Kingdom and the mid-size saloon starts at £34,305, going up to nearly 40 grand. Mind you, there are a number of trim levels that haven’t been priced yet.
2018 VW Arteon launches in the UK with two Elegance and R-Line trim levels and a choice of three turbo charged direct injection engines: a 280 PS 2.0 TSI (petrol); and two 2.0 TDI (diesel) engines with outputs of 240 PS and 150 PS. Later on two more engines will be added to the range, including a 150 PS 1.5 TSI (petrol) Evo unit, featuring economy-boosting cylinder deactivation technology; and a 190 PS 2.0 TSI (petrol). A DSG dual clutch seven-speed gearbox is standard across the range while 4MOTION all-wheel drive is reserved only for the 2.0 TSI and 2.0 TDI models.
