By far the best value for money!
This car has it all. I upgraded from a Holden Calais V 6.0L, and I haven’t looked back. The Arteon has features that I’d never even dreamed of, and with all the oily bits of a Golf R, it’s quick too!
I travel to work and back, which is 70km each way in horrendous peak hour Sydney traffic, and I can easily achieve <8.0l/100km. In regular traffic, I’ve seen efficiency sit at below 7.0 comfortably, and I tend to be a bit lead-footed.
When it comes to spirited driving, it’s got you covered, putting the car into sports mode changes the suspension...firmness, steering sensitivity, and gear shift speed. Launch control still scares me, and the factory specified 5.6 seconds to 100km/h is false; I’ve constantly achieved and measured 5.4. The fit and finish of the interior and exterior is exactly what you expect from a German manufacturer; everything is stiff when it should be, and the materials are all nice and solid. Coming from a Holden previously, the difference really is night and day. You won’t find a better car at this price point, believe me. The BMW 3/4-Series, Mercedes A/C-Class and Audi A3/4 might look comparable, but once you add the option packs to get all the features that come standard on the Arteon, you’re looking at $90K+ and a car that just isn’t as fun.
I love my Arteon!!
I have had my VW Arteon for over a year now and LOVE it! There is nothing I can really fault about it because it handles so well and is stylish has so many awesome features and is actually very zippy. Best car I ever had comes with longer warranty then prestige brands. So much space in boot and back seat plus plenty of room in front. So many safety features and is very comfortable even long distance

The Arteon has it all!! Looks, safety, comfort, reliability, technology, handling, space and we'll priced.
I use the Arteon as a family car, plus a daily work car. I have owned many different cars (mainly luxury/sport cars) VW Arteon is the most unique car I've had, it's got all the tech, gadgets, sporty, luxury, reliable, safe and good LOOKS. After test driving a dozen cars (BMW, Merc, Jag, Range Rover, Volvo, Lexus, Alfa, Audi) I felt bland. Something was missing in every model I tested. Upon test driving an Audi A5, I saw the Arteon at the dealership. I couldn't stop looking in its direction and ten minutes later I tested it. When I got back to t...he dealer I was sold on it! I've owned it for 6 months, I'm a proud owner and I receive endless compliments! It's very aesthetically pleasing. Here are the pros and cons of the Artreon R-Line : Pros: Sporty, luxurious, spacious, loads of safety features and a crisp 360° camera, sleek design, smooth steering, swift acceleration, crisp sound system, loads of tech and electronics. What got my attention the most was that I didn't need to add upwards of $10k for factory options like most luxury cars. The only upgrade that I made was the Sound&Style package (sun roof, bigger rims and upgraded sound system) for just a fraction more. No other brand had so much to offer, at such a fair price. I'm pleased with the fuel consumption, interior is top-notch quality. I love that it's AWD, it grips around bends and feels safe in all conditions. No issues so far, everything is great! I can't complain, but if I really have to point out a fault, it'd be the heads up display - I find it distracting, so I don't use it. The list of the Arteon's awesome features goes on. I love the unique artistic exterior and high-tech safety features. It's fast, 0-100 in about 5 seconds. Inexpensive to insure and great value for money.
