Gone is the eight-speed automatic from the 2021 sedan, and a dual-clutch, seven-speed automatic is equipped in the 2022 model year of the sedan. With EPA-estimated 24 MPG city/34 MPG highway fuel economy estimates, the 2022 Arteon gets 2 MPG increases from its 2021 counterpart. In the SEL R-Line trim of the 2022 Arteon, AWD has been made the standard drivetrain.  

Exterior & Interior Features

The R-Line appearance package that was an available option for the 2021 family of Arteon sedans has now been incorporated into every standard model of the 2022 Volkswagen vehicle. This gives the sedan that same sporty exterior that makes a strong statement as it cruises around northern Colorado. For a new twist in the 2022 model year, the premium vehicle gets to ride on superb 18-inch wheels. Another exterior change for the SEL R-Line trim is the availability of Dark Graphite 20-inch wheels for another level of demonstrative beauty. Not to be outdone, the interior of every 2022 Arteon gets added convenience through the inclusion of a standard wireless smartphone charger.  

Safety Features

To go along with the comprehensive suite of safety and driver-assistance technology carried over from its 2021 counterpart, the base-level 2022 VW Arteon gets the benefit of added parking sensors located on both the front and the rear of the sedan. With the crowded parking situations that Boulder drivers often find themselves in, these are great safety additions.
