Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Concentrates on what matters in a small SUV - looking and feeling different to a hatch.

Pros
Good powertrains,
electric version,
unusual looks inside and out

Cons
A bit softer than rivals in the bends,
can get pricey

The DS 3 Crossback turn heads and has an interior that’ll impress. However, plenty of alternatives are more intuitive to use, bigger inside and come with larger boots.

Pros
Stylish interior
Comfy over bumps
Lots of personalisation options

Cons
Fiddly interior buttons
Alternatives are cheaper…
… and more practical

The 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is a style statement with an added dose of practicality.

Pros
Slippery shape
Expansive cargo room
Good pep
Great warranty

Cons
Questionable value
Dismal fuel economy
Light on driving flair
So-so interior

Billed as the "spiritual successor" to the departed CC sedan, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon arrives on our shores just in time to witness the demise of its species. We're exaggerating, but the buying public's love affair with the crossover shows no sign of abating anytime soon and we admire VW for staying the course with the Arteon, which is positioned as the brand's flagship vehicle in the States. It's Volkswagen's belief that the Arteon's sleek exterior, curated feature content, and German-built pedigree will appeal to traditional-sedan customers who desire a touch of exclusivity and luxury without drawing too much attention to themselves.
