2019 Volkswagen Arteon Engine Specs

When you see the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon, your first thought is likely that the model is another luxury vehicle with a coupe-like appearance. There are plenty of VW fans who are already comparing it to the CC that went out of production after 2017, or wondering how the model is all that much different than the Passat. The answer is simple once you look into the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon engine specs. It turns out that the only model within the lineup that can outperform it is the 2018 VW Golf R. That’s impressive when you consider the Golf R is made for enthusiasts.
