Trims and Powertrain

Three versions of the Arteon are available for 2023: the SE R-Line, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line. Their aforementioned new engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, puts out 300 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard on the SE, while all-wheel drive (AWD) is the rule with the SEL and SEL Premium. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission manages these drivetrains.

The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the SE is 25 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway, which changes to 22 city/31 highway for the AWD-equipped SEL and SEL Premium. As we said above, the Arteon is spacious, with a 27.2 cubic foot cargo area that grows to 56.2 cubic feet with the rear seat folded flat, allowing this car to compete with a lot of crossovers in how much gear can be carried.

Standard Features

The Arteon SE comes with tri-zone automatic climate control, adaptive LED headlights (which turn to follow the steering) with automatic on/off, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, a hands-free rear hatch, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with heat and paddle shifters, a 10.25-inch digital cockpit, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated power side mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels. The seats are covered in V-Tex upholstery; the front row is power-adjustable and heated, with lumbar controls, while the rear seat splits 60/40.

The upgrades for the SEL include remote start, a power sunroof, leather upholstery, a driver’s position memory system, a power-folding feature to the side mirrors, adjustable ambient cabin lighting, and 20-inch alloy wheels. The SEL Premium spoils its occupants with a massaging driver’s seat, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated outboard rear seats.

Advanced Safety Technology

Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE suite of driver aids is standard in every 2023 Arteon. These features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian monitoring, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping support, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, and road sign recognition. Travel Assist, a semi-autonomous driving system, is part of this sophisticated technology, as is Emergency Assist, which can bring the Arteon to a stop in the event of a non-responsive driver. Front and rear parking sensors are standard across the trim range, with the SEL Premium also getting semi-automatic parking technology and a surround-view monitor.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Infotainment for the 2023 Arteon is centered around an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth. The additional standard features include wireless device charging, multiple USB ports, and a multi-speaker audio system (the SEL Premium comes with a Harman Kardon system). There’s also access to a Wi-Fi hotspot, enhanced navigation, and remote services through the Volkswagen Car-Net smartphone app.
