Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson! bit.ly/-Help-Me-carwow

This is the all-new Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake! It’s the estate version of VW’s Arteon R, and Mat’s going to put it through its paces to see if it has what it takes to go toe-to-toe against competitors like the BMW M340i Touring!

Starting off with performance - the Arteon R Shooting Brake’s powered by a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbo petrol engine which can put down 320hp and 420Nm. So it’s clearly no slouch, although the power output is down compared to the M340i Touring’s 374hp!

However, the engine isn’t the only update compared to the standard Arteon! The R edition comes equipped with an aggressive sporty front bumper and air intakes, along with a new rear bumper. And of course, as you’d expect from an R, it’s also sporting quad tailpipes!

The question is - is it really worth the £52,000 price tag?! There’s only one way to find out… Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review!

Vw made the arteon with less cylinders in order to have low fuel consumption in daily use and sporty when you need it and combining that with practicality and sexy looks i think its the ultimate all arounder but it a shame a lot people dont buy it because they want a car with more "premium" badge like bmw mercedes audi etc.

Really, you would be considering this or an S3 Audi or M340i, it's very nice looking, but would have loved to see a V6 option 😀

You should do a 0-100kmh test, this is probably why nearly all cars accelerate faster than stated as you are only testing to 96 kmh.

I brought a CLA shooting brake over this, please compare the two, but with the CLA 35 compared to this model. X

This car is more expensive than a M340i… Lolilolilol
FLOB32 преди месец
2k more than an M340i estate (which offers 2 more cylinders, 50 more hp and 80Nm more torque)? That's a pretty good way of not selling a lot of this model..

Looks great. I hope it’s coming to the states because I don’t have the 140K for an RS6 wagon and I hate SUVs…my wife has a Q7 which is sad.

I'm hoping mat mentions the Kia stinger the same amount of times in this video as he did the stinger video.As for that interior it looks so cheaply made. Another boring vag product pushed by mat so he gets paid.

I wonder if VW ever watches these reviews and the reactions of the journalists and just turn around and says to themselves: this carbon fibre and plastic bumper does fuck all to our main customers. Its still a shit car.

A shooting break has two doors and a hatch back not 4 doors. So it's just an ordinary every day estate car or wagon in the US. Let's call it a space ship instead as it has more in common with that.

The car from the front is beautiful, the back ok but on the side..... it looks like a stretched sedan with a rear part that doesn't belong to it...definitely not a fan of the side view

Nice looking car (I actually bought the first gen Passat CC just for its looks many years ago - took it back after a year!) but typical cheap looking interior from VW which lets it down, shame as it is a good looking estate

Why do European wagons get called "shooting brake"? This north american saw the G70 shooting brake, and now this thing, and is very thoroughly confused...

Buying a car that looses 50% of its price in 3 years. So you burn 40.000 Euro in 3 years for a car. How stupid are you?
