2020 Volkswagen Arteon Trim Levels

2020 Volkswagen Arteon white driving toward shot at golden hour

The Volkswagen Arteon is a bit of an unusual car but in the best of ways. Not only is it a combination of European luxury style and conservative German engineering, but it is also a combination between a sedan and a hatchback. It looks like a luxury sedan, but the back opens like a full hatch.

Further, this vehicle has seven trim levels, depending on how you count them. There are only about four trims if you don’t count the presence of 4MOTION® AWD as a separate trim from an otherwise identical model that doesn't have 4MOTION® AWD. The chart below uses the simpler approach, but keep in mind that each trim has 4MOTION® AWD as an option except for the SEL Premium R-Line which always has 4MOTION® AWD.



SEL R-Line 

SEL Premium R-Line 

8-Speed Automatic Transmission  Side Mirrors with Memory Feature  VW Digital Cockpit  Park Distance Control 
Automatic LED Head and Taillights  Driving Mode Selection  Rain-Sensing Windshield Wipers  R-Line Badging 
Bluetooth® Smartphone Connectivity  Intelligent Crash Response System  Performance Monitor  Adaptive Front Lighting System 
Rear View Camera System  Adaptive Cruise Control  Pedestrian Monitoring  Stainless Steel Pedal Caps 

Trim Level Comparison Analysis

No one version of this vehicle is any less a quality Volkswagen vehicle than any other. Even at the SE trim, options and safety technology are generous, and styling is rather consistent from model to model. Those who really know they want the best will go for the SEL Premium R-Line without hesitation since it unlocks the true potential of the model instead of just shoving a bunch of new features into the car.
