    It would be easy to write off the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon as yet another misguided attempt to push the people’s automaker in an upwardly mobile direction. See: Phaeton, CC, two cars that undoubtedly stressed the suits back in Wolfsburg as they languished on dealer lots. Perhaps those stiff bean-counters should have visited Santa Barbara, California, which is among the mellowest burgs on the laid-back West Coast. Snaking a gray Arteon along a beautiful ribbon of highway called State Route 33, this shapely sedan—which is actually a hatchback—comes into its own. It’s a...

    2019 VW Arteon video preview

    Volkswagen splits its mid-size sedan lineup two ways. For the mainstream consumer, there's the Passat. Kinda plain, but smart.

The Arteon is already on sale in Europe, but here in the United States the handsome fastback sedan is due to make its debut in mid-February at the 2018 Chicago auto show. That’s according to Consumer Reports, which also reports that the car’s starting price will likely come in close to the...
