SE spec added to VW’S Ar­teon

Gloucestershire Echo - - MOTORING NEWS -

AN en­try-level SE spec­i­fi­ca­tion of the Volk­swa­gen Ar­teon is be­ing added to the range priced from £33,085. IT joins the cur­rent El­e­gance and R-line mod­els and ini­tially will be avail­able only with a 2.0-litre petrol en­gine mated to a seven-speed DSG gear­box.

A diesel vari­ant will be in­tro­duced later in the year which will have the choice of man­ual or au­to­matic trans­mis­sions. The petrol-en­gined Ar­teon SE has a Wltp-con­firmed 44.1 mpg on a com­bined cy­cle and CO2 emis­sions of 144g/km.

The SE is fit­ted with 18-inch al­loy wheels, full LED lights, adap­tive cruise con­trol and a Dis­cover Nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with 8.0-inch touch

screen dis­play and three-zone cli­mate con­trol as stan­dard.

Volk­swa­gen is also mak­ing some up­grades to the El­e­gance and R-line mod­els, fit­ting them with 9.2-inch Dis­cover Nav­i­ga­tion Pro sys­tems first seen on the lat­est Pas­sat.

In ad­di­tion to these up­dates the re­vised Ar­teon brings small re­vi­sions in CO2 emis­sions for two vari­ants.

The 2.0-litre 272ps TSI DSG 4MOTION is now rated at 161g/km with no change in VED. How­ever, the 2.0-litre 190ps TDI DSG 4MOTION vari­ant has de­creased to 130g/km CO2 which re­duces its VED li­a­bil­ity by £320, drop­ping the car’s price to £39,025 in El­e­gance spec­i­fi­ca­tion and £39,825 for the R-line.
