2022 Volkswagen Arteon vs. Its Competition

2022 Volkswagen Arteon
Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

The Arteon sedan doesn’t have many natural competitors, but the nearest one is a similar large sedan with a liftback and more of a performance focus, the Kia Stinger.

Its near-luxury interior also puts it in contention with the flashier but more cramped Audi A5 Sportback.

The Hyundai Sonata is offered in an N-Line version with a more powerful turbo-4 that puts it on equal performance footing with the Arteon.

The real trouble for Volkswagen are the Genesis G80 and Acura TLX: They look great, perform better, have more luxurious interiors, and are priced similarly.
