2022 Volkswagen Arteon Trims & Specs

Three trims are offered for the 2022 VW Arteon, but all are powered by a 2.0-liter turbo-four generating 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque channeled through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In the base SE R-Line, you get 18-inch alloys, the R-Line appearance package, faux leather upholstery, LED headlights, tri-zone automatic climate control, parking sensors front and rear, wireless charging, and heated front seats. Adaptive dampers and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert are included too. Stepping up to the SEL R-Line gains you wheels one inch bigger, a panoramic sunroof, curve-sensing LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, remote start, and standard AWD. The top SEL Premium R-Line version also comes standard with 4Motion and also adds a premium Harman Kardon audio system, a hands-free tailgate, adaptive LED headlights, a surround-view camera, park assist, ventilated front seats with massaging for the driver, and heated outboard rear seats.

What's the Price of the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon?

What 2022 Volkswagen Arteon Model Should I Buy?

We really like the entire range here. There's loads of value in every model, including the base version which has far more tech than you may expect and now comes standard with wireless charging, front and rear parking sensors, and the R-Line package. Still, the bigger wheels looks great, and with genuine Nappa leather, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, 4Motion AWD, remote start, road-sign display, and lane assist, we think the best all-round package is the mid-level SEL R-Line. However, bigger wheels and all-wheel drive do not mean better, and if you value the best ride quality and don't live in an area that snows out every year, don't rule out saving a little cash as the SE offers everything you could need from an executive-style car - from daily commuting to date night and everything in between.
