What You Have to Get From 2022 Volkswagen Arteon

2022 Volkswagen Arteon – The all-new redesigned C-VR3 model offers a host of new features and upgrades, including a new, larger infotainment system with a single, universal head unit.

The powertrain is also a carryover from the previous model. It’s a six-cylinder diesel that produces 258 hp out of a single, rear-axle engine. Standard all-season tires round out the package, and a standard five-spoke all-season interior gives the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon its class and personality.

2022 Volkswagen Arteon R Coupe: The new compact version of the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is built on a new front end that better complements the rest of the car. The exterior has been updated with a wider hood, revised fenders, a reworked bumper, and a new rear diffuser.

You’ll also find a revised version of the Golf sound system with new stereo components, a new power steering system, and revised bodywork. It offers up to twenty percent more horsepower and up to twenty pounds lighter curb weight than the first-generation 2022 Volkswagen Arteon TD. Though the sedan has fewer standard passengers, it boasts a longer haul, thanks to a revised cowl, a deeper cabin, and a new signature rear spoiler.

2022 Volkswagen Arteon Stinger X: While the all-new Volkswagen Passat sedan doesn’t have a convertible model, the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon Stinger X does. Even without a top, the car has a sporty, aggressive look that helps it stand apart from other Volkswagen sedans. This version of the stinger has no windows, instead relying on sleek, low-profile doors for easy access. The back seat has also been completely redesigned, offering an improved view and wider door space.

2022 Volkswagen Arteon R Vs Volkswagen Passat: The new Volkswagen Passat is built on a base that’s slightly taller and 13 inches longer overall. Despite the size difference, the new sedan offers many of the standard features of the Volvo SCL and Audi A3, which means it’s still a very practical and roomy vehicle. When it comes to luxury small car features though, the difference between this model and the standard version of the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is night and day.

You see, while both models in the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon line offer standard features such as front airbags, they differ in the way they handle. The Volvo doesn’t decelerate as quickly when the accelerator is released, which makes it feel like it has more power underfoot. On the other hand, the Passat’s turbocharged four-cylinder has a more linear power feel to it, which means it pulls out of corners with less effort than the Volvo.

That said, if you’re shopping within a specific price range, the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon R has a lot to offer. It offers the same level of luxury and practicality as the aforementioned two cars, but it also costs just $4 less than the Volvo. And since it shares the same platform as the more upscale Volkwagen Stinger (which itself is just as compact and affordable), it shares the same understeering, stability and ride control characteristics. That being said, the Volkwagen hasn’t managed to close the gap between it and the offerings of its siblings, so the question of “which is the better of the two” still remains open.

With these two vehicles, however, the final comparison becomes a little bit easier. Between them, the only thing that sets the Volvo aside from the Passat is the all-around car class. With a more basic design, the Volvo’s ride is generally more comfortable, while the Passat relies on its four-door stance for greater balance and stability. In short, the Volkswagens are more suited to city driving and highway safety tests than the Arteons. But if you want to drive a stylish car with a sporty interior, then the Volkwagen Arteon R is your best bet.
