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

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!

      Size and weight wise it is closer to 5 series and also the 3 series is now “old” so the price is likely now lower than what it was when released.

    Why is everyone so concerned for the sound of the cars? Like, if it doesn't rev, it sucks. Have you heard of sound pollution? Not everyone wants to hear you engine on the street. One of my neighbors got a miscarriage on a street because she got scared from a guy who was revving his V8 car too loudly. I can hardly wait for all the cars to go electric. I am not a big fan of electric cars but I love the fact that they are quiet.

    I'm hoping mat mentions the Kia stinger the same amount of times in this video as he did the stinger video.As for that interior it looks so cheaply made. Another boring vag product pushed by mat so he gets paid.

    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.

    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. 😂
