This is a follow up review (see VW Fan reviewJanuary 2020). I completely stand by the previous review. For me, there is nothing that this car is missing. The Dynaudio system is amazing! I’m still amazed of the critics review of this fantastic car. The torque and HP is equivalent to the V6 Passat that I had (and gas mileage is very similar). I didn’t pay full MSRP for the SEL Premium R Line model and felt that it was a good deal. The Passat is a fantastic car also but the Arteon gives that extra little something that has been missing from the Passat for a very long time.

Great sedan for the money (actual price not MSRP)!

This is a fantastic car for the money - considering the loaded features, all wheel drive, hatchback, room and design. I was worried about some of the auto journalists reviews of this car until I realized they all seemed “oddly similar” in stressing things not really related to driving the car such as, “Who wants a sedan when you could buy an SUV?” Instead reviewing the Arteon, many are reviews of the US car market, VW diesel emission and other random things. Admittedly, the MSRP is way off - but that actual sales prices are perfectly fair compared to comparable cars (none of which offer a 6 yr, 72,000 mile warranty!). I was also worried about the Mediocre IIHS headlight ratings until I realized one only applies to the SE trim, not the SEL’s, and the other gave the SEL lights a low rating for “glare” - meaning glare for other oncoming drivers - not the Arteon driver! The SEL headlights are in fact totally awesome from the driver’s standpoint. Road noise is, indeed, a little loud for a premium car - and the R-Line 19” wheels do in fact roughen the ride a bit - I specifically had to search for a non-R-Line SEL. I prefer the less-decorative, contemporary interior of German cars, and the VW leather is top notch - so again, some reviews criticizing the interior are just not right for my taste. Yes, Audi’s have nicer interiors. The adjustable driving mode settings are impressive - not just transmission shift points, but also suspension dampening, steering ratio, headlight movement and other settings.

Very comfortable

Plenty of room and easy to drive. VW does sell a big car and the ARTEON is it. The sunroof is great and the sports car look makes me feel young again. Thank you
