Volkswagen, very descriptively, loves to try out for new experiments. With one of them right here, the 2022 Volkswagen Arteon is a spectacular pinnacle out of the German Outlands. As we all know, Volkswagen loves to cut it costs and does what ever it thinks; here, supposedly a bunch of complaints are accounted to miss out on the various traits of interiors if compared to its distant-relative Audi RS5, falling under the almost similar umbrella of pricing.
For 2022, Volkswagen enhances the Arteon’s turbocharged engine and pairs it with a new transmission. Its 2.0-liter four-cylinder now makes 300 horsepower (more than 30 extra horsepower) and 295 pound-feet of torque (extra by 30-35). A seven-speed-automatic now channels that power, replacing the conventional eight-speed auto.
