2022 Volkswagen Arteon for Sale in West Warwick, RI

22 Volkswagen Arteon black exterior


When it debuted in 2017, the Arteon became the entry from Volkswagen in the executive sedan segment thanks to its sophisticated design, ample supply of standard equipment, and overall premium nature. While the 2021 model introduced some significant styling and tech updates, for model year 2022 the Arteon dials up the desirability factor even further. Every trim gets a new powertrain setup and R-Line elements, and front and rear parking sensors and wireless smartphone charging are now included across the board. Meanwhile, the second-tier SEL R-Line trim receives standard all-wheel drive and is now eligible for darkened 20-inch wheels.

Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

The sharp-looking Arteon comes in SE R-Line, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line trim levels. One of 2022’s changes is a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 300 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque; it’s paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission. The SE R-Line gets front-wheel drive, while the SEL R-Line and SEL Premium R-Line are made with all-wheel drive. To make your life even easier, every ’22 Arteon comes with the Carefree Maintenance Program, which provides on-the-house scheduled maintenance visits for 2 years/20,000 miles (whichever comes first).

SE R-Line

The SE R-Line offers more than the average base model, as it comes with features like automatic LED headlights, heated exterior mirrors, push-button ignition, rain-sensing windshield wipers, tri-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with multi-function haptic touch surfaces, a wireless smartphone charger, Digital Cockpit (a fully digital 10-inch instrument cluster), dual front USB-C data ports, a 60/40-split rear seat with a center armrest, and nice-looking 18-inch wheels. The leatherette-upholstered seats are ergonomically sound and comfortable on long drives; in the front row, they have sport bolsters and are power-adjustable and heated. Both the interior rearview mirror and the driver’s-side exterior mirror are auto-dimming.

Every Arteon is equipped with VW’s IQ.DRIVE, a bundle of advanced driver-aid technologies. The SE R-Line’s version includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and front and rear parking sensors. For entertainment and communication, there’s an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that can also be controlled using voice commands. Its features are wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming.

SEL R-Line

VW upgrades the SEL R-Line’s headlights with a corner illumination feature, and the exterior mirrors are enhanced with power-folding and position memory. A panoramic sunroof, paddle shifters, and ambient interior lighting with changeable colors are all added. The seats are upholstered in Nappa leather, with position memory added to the driver’s seat. Some technologies are added to the IQ.DRIVE suite: adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, a dynamic road sign display, travel assist (for semi-automated driving), lane keeping assist, and emergency assist, which brings the vehicle to a full stop if the driver is unable to.

SEL Premium R-Line

The SEL Premium R-Line earns its middle name with a massaging driver’s seat, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a hands-free trunk, heated rear outboard seats, and a rear-seat USB-C charging port. In the driver-assist technology category, it adds an overhead camera system and automatic parking assist. The infotainment system is augmented with a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, and VW Car-Net comes standard to allow certain vehicle functions to be controlled via smartphone.
