Yes, the Passat is old, the refresh is going to be based off of the old car and we all know that's a sad situation (even if it makes sense for them) but there it is. I suppose it makes a certain amount of sense if you're looking for a mid-sized car on the cheap end the Passat will be there, but if you want luxury/style/whatever the Arteon brings to the table, there's that. It just costs a lot, but I suppose the idea is that you won't see your car's twin at every other intersection. Dunno.

Will this fly off the shelf like the mass market options? Probably not. But this isn't really being brought over as a volume offering. It's for people that want a VW that offers a more traditional european experience with a VW badge. And frankly, I'd take the Arteon all day long over an S60 or all but the highest spec TLX. So do I think the Arteon will drive better than an Accord or Camry. No doubt. Will it get a faster lap time than those? Who knows. Who cares? Non-Americanized VWs have always felt better to me than the Asian competition that most people seem to group it with.

- SEL 4motion
- SEL R-Line 4motion
- SEL Premium R-Line 4motion
From the articles above, it looked like 4motion was going to be an option for all trim levels, not standard once you moved up the chain. Did I misread (entirely possible), is vw.com not accurate, or did they perhaps reduce trim levels for this abbreviated sales year? I am most interested in a FWD SEL to get the options I want but to keep the price down.
Pricing shows about a $7,500 to $9,000 gulf between equally equipped A4/5 and Arteon in MSRP.
how come a transvestite donkey witch is next to you and why is it wearing a dress?
