2020 Volkswagen Arteon Review: More Space and Power

2020 Volkswagen Arteon has a very hard job for the years to come. It should repair damaged reputation after the scandal with the CO2 emission. On the other hand, it should follow market demands, be competitive with the highest class and has a low price. It could be very hard and not always possible, but on the other hand, it could be fulfilled with this model.

2020 Volkswagen Arteon review

The design of 2020 Volkswagen Arteon has not been changed much from the last model. It has famous and recognizable front grille on the compact and rounded front end and gridded grille. Squared LED front lights to stand on the sides of the bumper and the front end has a wide air intake on the bottom. The rear end is similar to the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and Audi A3, so the car could compete with the best sedans in class.

Being sedan, 2020 Volkswagen Arteon is one of the most enjoyable and comfortable cars on the market. Thanks to the large and roomy cabin, it has a lot of space for five adult passengers. However, that is not the only thing that affects the comfort of the passengers. The manufacturer added leather on the sculpted seats, and great materials of the cabin parts. The dashboard is like on other VW models, large and wide, very approachable and visible, with a large 7.8-inch touchscreen in the middle. The manufacturer has not précised anything about that, but we expect an upgraded infotainment system and new command table below the touchscreen. The manufacturer also added new safety system.

What is under the hood?

There are few optional engines that come with 2020 Volkswagen Arteon, but it is most likely that the buyers in the US will get only one – a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-in-line one. It should be 276 horsepower strong. For those who loved the old model, this is a surprise, since the last model had 248 horsepower under the hood. On the other hand, it should have the same 258 pound-feet of torque or slightly more than that. The transmission could be the same, eight-speed automatic one as before.

When 2020 Volkswagen Arteon is coming, how much will it cost?

The current model is still new and attracts attention so 2020 Volkswagen Arteon will surely not be shown for a while. However, it could be in the middle of the next year. The price range starts from $32,000 and could be high to the $42,000 with all equipment that buyer could demand. It will not be easy for this model to follow market demands and beat the competition, but we will be thrilled to see who will be satisfied with it the most.
