2021 VW Arteon Gains Two New Powertrains, Lower Starting Price In The UK

VW customers in the UK can now order the 2021 Arteon and Arteon Shooting Brake with two new powertrains and a more affordable starting price.

The facelifted Arteon is now available with the 148 HP 1.5-liter TSI engine, which drops the base price of the model down to £31,965 for the fastback and £32,765 for the Shooting Brake variant.

The other new engine is the 2.0-liter TDI diesel with 197 HP (200 PS), which is the most powerful in the range, at least until the Arteon R and Arteon eHybrid models arrive in the next few months.

The Arteon with the 197 HP 2.0-liter TDI is offered with both front- and all-wheel-drive, and is paired exclusively to a seven-speed DSG transmission. VW claims a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 7.4 seconds and a top speed of 145 mph (233 km/h) for both body styles.

Other engine options include the 148 HP 2.0-liter TDI and the 187 HP 2.0-liter TSI, with the latter being offered exclusively with a seven-speed DSG transmission and front-wheel-drive.

The range of the updated Arteon includes three trim lines – SE Nav, Elegance, and R-Line. The base SE Nav offers more kit as standard than the previous Arteon, including a Digital Cockpit, a three-zone climate control system, an 8-inch MIB3 infotainment system, adaptive cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat and more.

The Elegance trim features 18-inch alloys, keyless entry, a rear-view camera and Travel Assist. Finally, the more dynamic R-Line gets 19-inch wheels, dual trapezoidal exhaust tips in addition to a model-specific body kit, a sunroof, rear tinted glass and interior ambient lighting.
