Volkswagen adds 200PS diesel to Arteon range

9 2020 VW Arteon

Volkswagen’s Arteon fastback and Shooting Brake models can now ordered with a new 200PS 2.0 TDI diesel engine - the most powerful available so far.

Last month the manufacturer announced initital details of its revised and extended Arteon range and it has now revealed more information.

As well as the 200PS engine – which offers CO2 from 137g/km and combined fuel economy up to 54.3mpg  – Volkswagen also announced an entry-level 1.5-litre 150PS TSI engine in six-speed manual gearbox form which lowers the entry-level price for the range.

In fastback form, and when mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the 1.5 TSI-equipped Arteon accelerates from standstill in 8.9 seconds . and is capable of up to 44.8 mpg (combined, WLTP).

Volkswagen says an eHybrid powertrain will also debut in the Arteon fastback and Arteon Shooting Brake in due course, while range-topping 320PS R models are scheduled to arrive in the UK in 2021.

The additions mean the Arteon range is now available in 26 configurations, split evenly between the two body styles.

Three equipment lines remain available – SE Nav, Elegance and R-Line – and across the entire range, the revised Arteon and new Arteon Shooting Brake feature Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), 3Zone climate control, Digital Cockpit, LED headlights Wireless App Connect, and We Connect Plus adding live data services to the 8-inch Discover Navigation system.

Lisa Hartley, Arteon product manager at Volkswagen UK, said: “The arrival of a broader suite of engine, transmission and drive options in the new Arteon family of models underlines our intention to make the appeal of this new car as broad as possible.”
