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).

Notable Equipment

No matter which trim you choose, the Arteon is packed with great features. The entry-level SE R-Line has things like automatic LED headlights, heated side mirrors with driver’s side auto-dimming, rain-sensing wipers, and 18-inch wheels. Its cabin is equally enticing as it gets push-button ignition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, automatic climate control (three-zone), sport bolstered power-adjustable front seating with synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, 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, and a 60/40-split folding rear seat with a center armrest.

The SEL R-Line is even more upscale. It flaunts upgraded headlights that adjust to illuminate around corners, power-folding side mirrors with memory, 19-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, steering wheel paddle shifters, driver’s seat memory, heated front seats, multi-color ambient interior lighting, and Nappa leather upholstery. The top-spec SEL Premium R-Line gets the most luxurious equipment: a hands-free trunk, a massaging driver’s seat, heated rear outboard seats, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and a rear-seat USB-C charging port.

Active Safety Technologies

The IQ.DRIVE suite of driver-assistive features is standard across the range. In the SE R-Line, it contains a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. In the SEL R-Line, IQ.DRIVE includes adaptive cruise control, a dynamic road sign display, automatic high beams, travel assist (this enables semi-automated hands-on driving), lane keeping assist, and emergency assist, which brings the vehicle to a full stop if the driver is unable to do so on their own. The SEL Premium R-Line is the most loaded, getting an overhead camera system and automatic parking assist.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Discover Media infotainment system found in the 2022 Arteon is quite advanced. In the SE R-Line and SEL R-Line, it features an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, voice recognition, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The SEL Premium R-Line gets all of that, plus a high-end 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Every ’22 Arteon trim is also compatible with VW Car-Net, a mobile app that allows you to control certain vehicle functions directly from your smartphone
