The vehicle is well-appointed and scores high marks for standard features, available options, and new model year enhancements that make the driving experience a memorable one. Let’s take a sneak peek at what makes the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon a sedan that makes a statement.
Sculpted With a Classic Design
The 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is a timeless 4-door hatchback sedan sculpted like an old-world masterpiece yet perfectly suited for the modern driver. The driver’s cockpit, passenger space, and back row seating are all cavernous, with ample room to stretch out and relax while enjoying the ride. The 27.2 cubic feet of cargo room is bountiful, and the 60/40 split rear seats have a pass-through area to transport longer items making the car not only roomy but creative in terms of storage space.
Available ambient lighting that can change color is a way to create a vibe depending on your mood. The vibe is accentuated with heated front seats standard in all models. Available leather seats create a feeling of luxurious warmth, especially when coupled with the driver’s massage seat for that extra bit of pampering we all need from time to time, especially after a hard day at work. Drivers welcome the panoramic sunroof that slowly glides open to reveal the open air breeze while allowing everyone to catch a few rays of sun on a beautiful day for a drive.
The exterior of the Volkswagen Arteon is pure craftsmanship at its finest. The use of stylish LED lights integrated into the grille and the taillights give it a modern, sporty yet refined look. Conveniences such as the available hands-free trunk opener and easy-close hatch are nice touches to make the vehicle not only stylish but a convenient utility too.
Thrills With Exhilarating Performance
One of the most exciting announcements about the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is in the new and improved engine. Buyers are given a 300 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque engine that can accelerate to 60 miles per hour in a smidge over 6 seconds. The 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission is not only simpler to drive but results in a quicker, crisper drive. Drive settings like comfort, normal, and sport settings place the driver in control of the handling given the moment and the experience they desire, yet the vehicle is intelligent to shift to the optimal setting when required. Overall, the performance of the 2022 Arteon is solid. The driver and passengers will delight in a comfortable ride where everyone will feel like they’re in control yet exhilarated by the experience.
Modern Technology Touches
While the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is well-appointed on the interior, stylishly sporty on the exterior, and a pure performer under the hood. Its technology touches will keep the driver feeling and passengers feeling every bit part of the modern world. The infotainment system immediately catches the eye. It’s a color touch system that allows the driver to control various systems like the radio or their connected phone. Speaking of connectivity, the vehicle effortlessly connects using Apple Car Play and Android Auto to keep the driver integrated with their digital world even while driving.
The two USB ports provide additional touches of technology convenience to keep devices charged for those longer drives. There is also the thoughtful use of wireless phone charging so, if you forget your cord, wireless charging becomes your go-to tech to keep you powered up for the road ahead. Modern touches of technology extend beyond the cabin too. For example, the remote start is a handy little feature to have on those cold winter days where you’d rather get into a nice warm vehicle and be ready to go. Keyless access is also a smart utility to have on hand when you need to lock and unlock your Arteon for safety and security reasons.
Speaking of safety, the Arteon is well-equipped with the latest and greatest technology in this department. Features like Rear Traffic Alert, Autonomous Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control are available on the Arteon, so you and your passengers will always have peace of mind that the safety technology is your extra pair of eyes on the road at all times.
Finally, the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon comes with a mobile app. This is super convenient for remote commands, alerts, parking info, and for acting as a mobile hotspot. Keep connected to your car wherever you are and have easy access to your commands at the touch of a button on your phone.
There’s an Arteon for Anybody
The 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is a perfect sedan for commuting to work, running errands, carpooling the family, or taking that much needed long-weekend trip. The big decision is determining the right Arteon for you. Whether you’re a Volkswagen brand loyalist or might be new to the brand, the Arteon model comes in three trims to fit any lifestyle or personality. The great news is that all three trims are now part of the R-Line. The R-Line is a sportier set of features that were optional in models past. Now they’re standard, giving the Arteon the sleek touches no matter what version you choose.
The SE is the base trim. It has 18-inch wheels, and like all Arteon vehicles, is equipped with the powerful 300 horsepower engine. The SE has front-wheel drive, parking sensors, and wireless charging mentioned above. The SEL is the mid-range option. It has bigger wheels in a beautiful gun-metal graphite finish, and it is equipped with all-wheel drive. All-wheel drive will elevate your driving experience with tighter handling, especially when the wheels grip the ground around corners and on rougher terrains. This is a feature worth having in harsher rainy, cold weather.
Finally, there is the SEL Premium. It’s the top of the line with most of the available features mentioned, so the luxury, performance, and style are maxed out. The 3-zone multi-climate control helps with temperature settings when the driver and passengers, including in the rear, don’t share the same preferences. The leather heating steering wheel is refined yet sporty, and the coolness of the ventilated seats is as welcome on those hot and humid days as is the warmth of the heated seats on those cold and rainy days.
Luxury That Performs
The 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is definitely a performer. It is easy on the eyes and turns heads when driving down the road, given its unique curves. It is open and roomy on the inside, so even those over 6 feet tall can stretch out and enjoy the ride without feeling cramped or squashed. Its newly equipped engine with the new and improved horsepower and torque brings the thrill and excitement of driving to the forefront as it accelerates quickly and maintains speed with ease.
Volkswagen continues to invest in the Arteon to make it greater and greater with each passing year. The 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is without exception. The innovations and enhancements for 2022 are serious upgrades that will elate any driver’s emotions. Whether the Arteon impresses with luxury, style, or performance, it simply is impressive.
