2021 Volkswagen Arteon Trim Levels

Making the most of a sedan in 2021 means taking every advantage you can get. The Arteon may be a relatively new model, but its designers have proven their dedication to making it the most useful large sedan it can be. This means some tweaks to the styling and updates to available features. The Volkswagen Arteon arrives in 2021 with three trims, which is fewer than last year.

Cutting away some trims keeps the Arteon focused on its strengths. There is no regular SEL, and 4MOTION™ is now a standard for the SEL Premium R-Line. After all, most people who drive cars this size and quality expect to have maximum traction. The remaining trims retain the hatchback-style back end which enhances cargo space without making the Arteon look outdated. Each trim and its highlights are outlined in the following chart.

Trim Level Analysis

Those who shop for a mid-level trim will find that the SEL R-Line can be sold with 4MOTION®, which may be a deal maker for some. The SEL R-Line does improve appointments and technology generally, making it a great fit for anyone looking for more value than the SE but who don’t care to go all-in on the SEL Premium R-Line with 4MOTION®. Choosing the SEL Premium R-Line with 4MOTION® does unlock the full potential of the large sedan, making it worth the investment for anyone who can appreciate its features.
