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.

Other than the shuffling of some minor trim items, the 2018 Volvo S60 carries over unchanged.

PROS
Good balance between a comfortable ride quality and sporty handling
Excellent safety scores and available advanced safety features
Available extended-wheelbase model offers extra legroom

CONS
Fuel economy for high-performance engine might not live up to expectations

The 2018 Volvo S60 is a pleasant car, but rivals and even the rest of Volvo’s lineup have left it in the dust.

Pros
Great safety scores
Broad lineup
Strong acceleration
Exceptionally comfortable seats
High-buck feel inside

Cons
Bland, dated styling
Old-school infotainment
Even at its best, not all that fun
Light on personality versus Volvo’s latest
