VW Ar­teon

CAR (UK) - - Our Cars -

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.
