Great car and value. But could be better.

In the first 48 hours of owning the 2019 Arteon, I've received more positive compliments than I ever have in owning any vehicle. It's flat out a good looking car. The fact that it's such a low volume seller only adds to the attention it gets. The downside is mechanical. Most buyers will yearn for 25-30 more horsepower and a snappier transmission. But if you don't push the chassis and expect to drag race from light to light, you will be rewarded with a plush and comfortable ride. Interior is typical VW with good quality. Despite the popular consumer buying guides, the best value is the SEL Premium trim. This is largely due to the electronic aids and comforts that only that trim level has such as 360 camera view, front and rear park sensors, heated steering wheel, rear seating climate control, ventilated front seats among others.

My 2019 Arteon SE w/ four motion is a joy to drive. It has power. It is spacious. The front seats can be adjusted for any shape and size. I like to sit high to maximize visual field over the front hood. The visual field through the rear window is more than adequate. Yes, the trunk space is expansive. Sparing on console knobs and dials, pleasingly so. Its exterior design is very stylish, to the point of people complimenting it. My mileage is closer to 32 hwy and 23 city.

Unique vehicle

I still have yet to see another one on the road. I have only owned this vehicle for 4 months but I thought I would have seen at least one on the road by now. I’ve gotten many compliments on its look. The seats are comfortable. Trunk space is plentiful. Plenty of room in the back seat. Fit a 6’3” man in the back with the front seats at a normal position and his knees didn’t touch. Currently have a child seat in the rear that is forward facing and I still have room. The different drive modes are a nice added feature. I generally drive it in comfort mode. It does hit bumps fairly hard in comfort mode and obviously hits them harder in sport mode. Economy mode is a no-no for me as I don’t like to drive slower. I’m averaging around 19mpg city and about 23 highway. It handles well. The Apple car play is glitchy every once in awhile where the screen will stay blank but will still have audio. I always have to unplug the USB and plug it back in to get it to work again. It’s only happened about 3 times so far so I haven’t brought it in to service until it becomes a little more consistent. I have had the driver’s side mirror replaced already because it whistles while driving at highway speeds and on windy days. The replacement mirror did not fix the noise as I did not expect it to since it is the same design. It needs a redesign to make it go away. The driver’s side door panel trim pieces are making noise also but the dealer hasn’t been able to pinpoint the source yet to fix it. I had a loud buzzing noise while at RPM changes from the passenger front door which turned out to be the fuel lines vibrating against the body of the vehicle. That was insulated and resolved. If you get the SE model without the power hatch (trunk), be prepared to get a workout. The hatch is HEAVY and is manual operation. You may want to splurge on the power hatch for the convenience. The rear windows roll down 3/4 of the way, which is a minor complaint but it’s not possible for them to roll down 100% due to the body lines. It just irritates my 3 year old that they don’t roll down. The blind spot monitors sometimes indicate things are there when they’re not. There’s also a crash sensor that keeps randomly going off here and there in congested intersections. I enjoy this car though and do not regret my purchase. It’s a new model year so there are always kinks to be worked out on them which I am aware of.
