Words by: Erin Baker

"Is it a coupe? Is it an estate? Actually it’s their lovechild, the Arteon Shooting Brake. Until now, the Arteon has only been available as a ‘fastback’ four-door coupe. This slick, quick Shooting Brake is a posh Passat estate, if you will. Just be careful which version you go for."

Running costs for a Volkswagen Arteon


Typically for VW there is a huge range of trim levels and options for the Arteon Shooting Brake, meaning your budget slithers around with banana-skin acceleration as you configure your car. And they haven’t even introduced the crazy Arteon R yet. If space is your priority, you’d be better off with the humble Passat estate. Meanwhile, engines on offer include petrols, diesels and a plug-in hybrid, and trim levels are SE Nav, Elegance or the high-performance R-Line spec. In other words, running costs will vary considerably. For example, while the plug-in hybrid (branded eHybrid) will cost you more up front, if you use it mainly in pure electric mode and recharge on an off-peak domestic tariff overnight, you’ll be better off than if you’d bought the 2.0-litre petrol. On the other hand, the latter is more fun…
