Review: 2022 Volkswagen Arteon – Last of a Breed

Volkswagen didn't rest on its laurels after launching the Arteon lineup in 2020 and brought some significant improvements to the vehicle for the 2022 model year.

After it dropped the Phaeton, the Arteon remained Volkswagen's flagship sedan. Even though it was based on the same scalable MQB platform shared with most other stablemates. For the 2022 model year, the sporty-looking vehicle was available in three trim levels: SE R-Line, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line. All three versions featured the R-Line pack both inside and out.

For the 2022 model year, the aggressive stance was emphasized by the contoured hood lines that emerged on the main grille. Furthermore, the base version featured standard 18" light-alloy wheels, while the SEL R-Line was available with 20" ones. Finally, the Premium R-Line was offered with standard 20" alloys. In addition, the middle and top versions got an illuminated light bar in the grille to complement the LED daytime running lights. Also, the LED headlights were fitted as standard on the entire range.

Inside, all versions had a three-zone Climatronic Touch HVAC system as standard. In addition, for cold weather, all versions received standard heated front seats. At the same time, the Premium L-Line featured heated and ventilated four seats. In addition to the standard MIB3 touchscreen infotainment, the German automaker offered Sirius XM with 360L and a 700-Watt harman/kardon audio with 12 speakers, including a subwoofer. The high-quality sound system was standard for the Premium L-Line.

Apart from the SE R-Line, fitted with FWD-only, the rest of the range featured a 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. However, the most significant upgrade was under the hood, where the automaker installed a 300 hp (304 PS) turbocharged inline-four paired with a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
