You can’t really have a car without an engine or a motor. For some drivers, knowing the limits of their engine is a matter of pride, while for others it doesn’t matter as long as it runs. Whichever one you are, you can read the specifications of the engine in the 2020 Volkswagen Arteon below. Lots of larger cars have multiple engine options, but that’s not the case with the Arteon.
How Much Horsepower and Torque Does the 2020 Volkswagen Arteon Have?
The Volkswagen Arteon may be a sedan, but it’s not a small one. This car is made to fit an entire family, so the added size and weight require a more powerful engine than what you would find in the Jetta or Passat. The Arteon for 2020 has a 2.0L engine that is turbocharged to get the most power out of a small package. Horsepower measures 268 with this engine, and torque reaches 258 lb-ft, making this engine more than enough for long highway drives and occasional hills.
What Kind of Transmission Does the 2020 Volkswagen Arteon Have?
Worried that all your favorite cars are going to start putting Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVTs) under the hood? That may be the case with a lot of automakers, but not with the Volkswagen Arteon. Many people don’t like how it feels to drive a CVT because they feel it lacks the tactile nature of automatic and manual transmissions. The Arteon has an 8-speed automatic transmission so almost any driver will be satisfied. There is no manual transmission option, but the automatic should be more than enough for most drivers.
Can You Buy a 2020 Volkswagen Arteon with 4MOTION® AWD?
The powerful engine and quality transmission of the 2020 Volkswagen Arteon are aided on some higher trim levels with 4MOTION® AWD technology. This allows you to get the most out of your Arteon in the most possible situations. As a sedan, the Arteon probably won’t do well off-road, but if it had to deal with tougher terrain, the 4MOTION® AWD trims are ready to take on the challenge.
