2021 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2020 Volkswagen Arteon

Serving Troy, MI

While the Volkswagen Arteon has only been on the market for a few years, this Volkswagen sedan has made a big name for itself. The Arteon is the Volkswagen flagship sedan, and it delivers the exceptional all-around performance that you would expect from a premium model. Before picking out your new Arteon from Suburban Volkswagen of Troy, you need to check out the updates to the 2021 model.


You will notice that the 2021 Arteon is available in fewer trim levels. The options are the SE, SEL R-Line, and SEL Premium R-Line. The first two trims come with front-wheel drive, and the top trim is equipped with 4Motion all-wheel drive. Volkswagen has not changed the powertrain between 2020 and 2021. All Arteon trims for these two model years have a turbo four-cylinder, 2.0-liter, 268-horsepower gas engine.


The many differences between the 2020 Arteon and the updated 2021 version begin on the exterior. The 2021 Arteon expresses its modern appeal through a bumper-to-bumper refresh. The latest version of the Arteon has an extended, power-minded profile with chrome accents across the front, sides, and rear. The front end has LED headlights that are underscored by a bold light ribbon. This light extends linearly across the grille to connect the headlights. The grille is expansive, with stacked lines running from top to bottom throughout the nose.


The interior style of the Arteon and features remain the same going into the 2021 model year. Throughout most or all of the Arteon trims for 2020 and for 2021, this sedan has ambient lighting, premium materials with accent stitching, and a stunning center stack design that tapers downward. In both model years, interior features include a digital cockpit display, remote access through a smartphone app, smart device app integration accessed through the touch display screen, a 12-speaker Dynaudio system, and more. All Arteon trims have also been intelligently appointed with assistive and advanced safety features that include a light assist, an exterior camera, adaptive cruise control, front assist, and more.

The 2020 and 2021 Volkswagen Arteon have boundless appeal, so you may be thrilled to own any of the trims available. The next step in your sedan research is to visit Suburban Volkswagen of Troy.
