Not only is the 2019 VW Arteon more powerful than the 2019 TLX at base level, but it’s also much better equipped to help you get a good handle over the pavement. This is because of its included 4MOTION® All-Wheel Drive system and DCC® Adaptive Damping System, both of which help to maximize throttle response in ways that the TLX can’t duplicate. Plus, with a Volkswagen Digital Cockpit, premium audio systems, and the following driver assistance features included, the Arteon does luxury better than its luxury rivals:  

  • Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking 
  • Side Assist 
  • Rear Traffic Alert System 
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go 
  • Lane Keeping System 
  • Park Assist 
  • Maneuver Braking 
  • Many more!
