MONTH 4 By Ben Pulman
THE ‘PANORAMIC sunroof’ in the Arteon isn’t really that panoramic. It only stretches as far back as the B-pillars and does nothing for those in the back – which isn’t good enough for £935.
Then there’s the auto handbrake. It’s a fantastic invention, allowing you to come to a halt and take your foot o the brake while leaving it in Drive. But it doesn’t work well here. When it’s time to move, it holds on too long, the revs rise, and then you’re suddenly released, shooting o like a jerky learner.
