.............................................................

This is the all-new Volkswagen Arteon R Shooting Brake! It’s the estate version of VW’s Arteon R, and Mat’s going to put it through its paces to see if it has what it takes to go toe-to-toe against competitors like the BMW M340i Touring!

Starting off with performance - the Arteon R Shooting Brake’s powered by a 2-litre 4 cylinder turbo petrol engine which can put down 320hp and 420Nm. So it’s clearly no slouch, although the power output is down compared to the M340i Touring’s 374hp!

However, the engine isn’t the only update compared to the standard Arteon! The R edition comes equipped with an aggressive sporty front bumper and air intakes, along with a new rear bumper. And of course, as you’d expect from an R, it’s also sporting quad tailpipes!

The question is - is it really worth the £52,000 price tag?! There’s only one way to find out… Stick with Mat for his latest in-depth review!

Have to work for VW to buy this over a M340. The BMW will sell for more, be in more demand than the VW and there are likely some nice BMW (pricey) options to bespoke the BMW better. The VW might be a great 2nd hand buy with freefall depreciation over the regular Arteon Shooting brake. Still likely handles better than the breeze block Tiguan no matter what the Letter R implies.

A shooting break has two doors and a hatch back not 4 doors. So it's just an ordinary every day estate car or wagon in the US. Let's call it a space ship instead as it has more in common with that.

The car from the front is beautiful, the back ok but on the side..... it looks like a stretched sedan with a rear part that doesn't belong to it...definitely not a fan of the side view

Nice looking car (I actually bought the first gen Passat CC just for its looks many years ago - took it back after a year!) but typical cheap looking interior from VW which lets it down, shame as it is a good looking estate

I wanted to like this. In the market for a new shiny wagon but I doubt this vw will do 200kmiles effortless miles like mine, But Honestly I just hate modern VW's now they reak cheapness. That engine sounds pants. And it will have useless reliability being a modern VAG like everyone I work on or family owned. I choose Toy/Lexus every time for my other vehicles, mainly because unlike the vw the engine management light doesn't come on 3 times in a 1year old car. Those reliability surveys don't lie. 😂

Comparing the Arteon to a 3-series BMW is rediculous. The 3-series is much smaller. It's a different class. It's like saying "yeah Arteon is good, but the Golf R is better" True, but the Golf R does not offer so much space. And the 3-series BMW nor the Golf R offer the LOOKS of the Arteon either. So there you go. I'd take it over the 3-series, the golf and the C300 Coupe any day of the week.

This car should have 2.5 5 cylinder engine from the RS3. The sound and the performance would be as good as the exterior design. Best VW design ever

Volkswagen had such a great opportunity to make this Arteon R shooting Brake a great car. To me this looking like VW tried to bring back the Passat R36. IF VW Put the 3.6L VR6 in this car I like you mentioned, think it would have been a way better car! If they were concerned about emissions well put the 2.5 VR6 Turbo engine from China in this car. It would make the same power and just sound 1000 times better, the engine is 100% interchangeable on VW MQB platform so it would have been such an easy swap. I may be old school when I say this but the new "R" cars really don't have anything special about them. Back in the day the R cars got completely different engines trim and interior that enthusiast couldn't stop talking about. Just looking at the R32! Its sill one of VW most sought after modern enthusiast cars today. I do love the styling of the Arteon R shooting Brake, I feel like it fits the traditional "R" package, but the engine choice just falls flat for me. To be an R I feel the heart of the car needs to be aggressive and not just the same old tuned 2.0 inline 4 banger you get in very VW. You need some spice and grunt behind it. IDK that's just my thought. Good try VW maybe try to be more creative with your engine selection next time. If there will even be an engine next time... it will probably be all electric. :(
