The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.3
7.0

TCC’s Bottom Line

The refreshed 2022 Stinger upgrades with the latest technology, but the new base powertrain is a letdown. The 2022 VW Arteon is a good choice for those who want luxury trappings at a lower price, without compromising on cargo or passenger room.
