Dozer Deliberates on the 2018 VW Arteon 2.0 TSI 4MOTION R-Line DSG


On September 12, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 10 L/100km

Bare with me here, I know this is a Wolfsburg product. But, there's an African-American saying for when the chef cooks a bad-ass meal and is complimented by his dinner guests, it goes, "You put your drawers in that pot, didn't you!" That's what Volkswagen did with the all-new Arteon, a worthy successor to the CC, VW's first 4-door coupe. You can still see some CC in the new Arteon's silhouette, but the Arteon is a very fresh interpretation of this type of car. VW "made the pots happen" with this one.

It's competition is the BMW 4-Series & Audi A5 (its blood line), but it comes at a much better value for money. Inside it's familiar VW fair, lots shared with the Passat in terms of the dashboard, cabin size and equipment. However, there's a big difference in execution to the Passat. You sit lower, the doors are frameless for that classic coupe feel and look, the roof is lower, body is wider and longer too. So that sleek and stylish stance is nail.

VW says they are targeting Golf owners who wish to move up a segment, but wish to stay within the brand and not change to the increasingly overcrowded SUV world. So, everything you know about equipment levels in a Golf 7.5 GTI or Golf 7 R, that's what you get in the Arteon. This 2.0 TSI 4MOTION R-Line has 206kW/350Nm driving all 4 wheels. What I was most impressed with - being a dad to 2 toddlers and running around town a lot - is the relaxing and spacious interior (boot is massive as well), how easy it is to maneuvre in tight spaces and parking (2 steering wheel turns from lock-to-lock), heated windscreen washer (never seen that before), and when I did have a chance to stretch its legs, the grip levels are hard to overcome.

You do not need this top-range R-Line model, there's an Elegance model powered by a diesel engine (2.0 TDI) with the same amount of torque (but power is down at 130kW). With this you will save on the purchase price and fuel bills.

Joy Ride in a Volkswagen Arteon


On October 3, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption L/100km

This might looks like the Arteon I had on test last year,however that was a diesel derivative, this is equipped with 2.0TSI EA888 engine similar to the one found in Golf R and equipped with 4Motion that sends power to all 4 wheels when in need just like in Golf R.


You do get the Dynamic Chassis control as Standard where you can change in between your driving profiles,Apple car play/Android Auto that mirrors the phone to the infotainment unit.


Seats powered & Massaging capabities, Discover Pro navigation with 9.2 inch intuitive touch screen with gesture control,Active Info Display (full digital screen and driver focused) and Panoramic Roof ,Keyless entry with stop/start button , Mahala!

Did I mention that Legroom and boot space is for days?
I cannot dwell well on Perfomance as I had the car for half a day and the dealership was so quick and efficient to finish servicing my car in half a day!

Which all that said you will feel the poke of 206KW/380NM mated to seven speed gearbox should you accidentally apply immense pressure to the brushed alliminium pedal situated on your right foot , yes forget about getting Vrr Phaa Noise,you don’t really need that in Elegant Gran Turismo Coupe like car.

The plan here is to Move Swiftly to your next destination in a dignified manner however with Perfomance when in need,Tech Gizmos where noticed by curious me like the 3D DynAudio Sound system With built in subwoofer.



I counted Four cameras,one in front back ,other behind the rear badge and the other two under the mirrors,that tells me the car have got 360 degrees camera capabilities (area view) with Adaptive cruise control with autonomous braking , as well as front and Back Park Distance Control.

With Optional Rosario Volkswagen R 20inch Mags that completes the Bawler look’


But how much is it? At over 700k ,that’s sounds like a lot of money however I will always maintain that the car needs to be judged against its peers and rivalry and what it offers to the table, I did my small research and found the car to be offering more for less, with rivalry not matching its standard equipment and asking price.


It’s a good looking head turning of a car with flair and style , fairly underrated goodness of the car, it will be sad to see the car parish because consumers tend to buy the badge than what the car actually makes offers.

Special Shout out to good people of West Cape VW for loaning me this Majesty of a car, they didn’t have to but did it anyway! That’s an ingredient in keeping the customer happy at all times!
