I picked up my Arteon at the beginning of March. It's a Urano Grey Elegance model, upgraded infotainment screen, blind spot assistance and 2.0 TDI 190HP.

I actually ordered a petrol engine, but the factory got the order wrong and sent me a diesel. I almost returned the car, but it's worked out for the best given the improved MPG (I'm averaging 50.4 after 1,000 miles).

Have yet to see another Arteon on the roads, and it seems I'm the only person with the Elegance model in the UK. Went with it because of the brighter interior and nicer-looking seats.

Nearly a month in, I'm totally loving the car. Looks amazing in person, drives well, and the semi-autonomous features are fantastic. I drove 300 miles across the country recently, and the car did most of the steering/accelerating/braking. Once you set the sat nav it even slows correctly for corners and roundabouts.

Some photos attached :)

Welcome to the forum Tom, congrats on the new Arteon. Love the color combo that you went with. Happy to hear you're pleased with it so far and I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot more of them on the roads in the coming months. That is some pretty incredible fuel economy on the diesel. See why you changed your mind about returning it.
