The Arteon competes with other large sedans like the Kia Stinger, Toyota Avalon and Dodge Charger. If the rear-wheel-drive Stinger and Charger represent performance and the Avalon a cushy, comfortable cruiser, then the Arteon splits the difference between those. Its standard adaptive suspension provides great ride quality and isolation while still offering enough feedback that the driver won’t feel disengaged — it’s Goldilocks for those looking for a car to take on long trips.

Backing that up is a high-quality interior. Nappa leather and real metal accent pieces on higher trim levels help the Arteon blur the line between itself and premium competitors. The Arteon also has grown when compared to its spiritual predecessor, the now defunct Volkswagen CC. It has a 5-inch-longer wheelbase, which translates to impressive rear legroom and a spacious cargo area.
