2023 Volkswagen Arteon Trim Levels and Standard Features

by Frank

The 2023 Volkswagen Arteon trim levels have a modern Gran Turismo look, a luxurious interior, cutting-edge technology, and an optional 4Motion all-wheel drive. The 2023 Volkswagen Arteon mixes style and technology in a way that is uncommon outside of high-end luxury cars, balancing frugal but powerful performance.

The 2023 Volkswagen Arteon is a good alternative to the Audi A5 Sportback or even the much more expensive Audi A7, both of which are also hatchbacks. Another competitor is the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. But the Kia Stinger is right in the middle of Volkswagen’s sights, and the Arteon is ready to compete.
