2021 Volkswagen Arteon is a slightly redesigned sports sedan, one of those that only a particular class of buyers buy and drive. There are significant changes in this model. However, most of them are not in size or engine type. You will see how great the model is on test driving, where the engine showed great performances.
- The model is beautiful and modern.
- The engine is reliable and economical.
- The model does not have four doors as competition.
- The price is a little higher than competition’s.
There are no many novelties in 2021 Volkswagen Arteon. The manufacturer has produced much prettier and more aggressive front end, with the great new shape of the bumpers and redesigned lights on the front and rear end. Although there is a little different front end from other models from the manufacturer, it is still unique for this manufacturer. It is shaped in V-shape, but not that obvious like Alfa Romeo Giulia.
Although we are not satisfied with the look inside the 2021 Volkswagen Arteon, we may say that it has charming design and materials. Admittedly, it could compete with the many models in class with the luxury materials they used, even in base trim. However, the look of the cabin is close to Volkswagen Passat, with a high capacity of 27 cubic feet.
We must confirm larger room space, especially in the rear end, and significantly shaped seats. On the other hand, the dashboard is pretty simple, with flat vents and few small lines in chrome. Among many additions, we must confirm heated rear seats, a power liftgate, and even massage function on the driver’s seat.
However, the model does not have an optional four-door version, which is not good if you want to compete with Buick Regal or similar hatchback in the class. You will be able to choose a sound infotainment system, USB ports, Wi-Fi, and phone application stores. The manufacturer has included a great audio system an many more premium additions.
2021 Volkswagen Arteon Engine
2021 Volkswagen Arteon goes on the simple but powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine and its 268 horsepower. The manufacturer has decided to match it with eight-speed automatic transmission, claiming that it is the best combination for the highest results. As we can see, they were right. The speed of 60 mph car achieves 6.1 seconds, which is excellent for this class. When it comes to the fuel economy, it is also perfect for this size of the vehicle.
As the manufacturer expects, it should be around 20-29 mpg. The manufacturer improved the driving, mostly thanks to the adaptive suspension dampers, to adjust to your driving style. In that way, you will be able to choose between comfort, healthy, and sport driving. This addition is standard equipment. You can be sure that the model will achieve the lability level like Volvo S60 has or much more popular Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
2021 Volkswagen Arteon Release Date and Price

It is expected that model will cost around $38,000 if you order a basic model, while higher trim could cost a little more. However, the manufacturer offers excellent warranty and other favorable offers to become an owner of the model for a meager price and high conditions.
