I spend a week with the 2023 VW Arteon R-Line which is now more powerful thanks to the motor from the Golf R being transplanted in. Now with 300 hp, the Arteon is a lot more exciting to drive, and combined with the excellent comfort it has, those looking for a more spacious and comfortable Golf R might find a lot to like here. But unfortunately it isn’t a perfect experience, and at it’s much higher price point compared to its competitors, it’s tough to justify even in its final year on the market before the ID.7 comes to replace it. What do you think about the 2023 Arteon? Thanks to Volkswagen for providing this vehicle to review!
