Canadian VW Arteon & Passat GT debut | expo #2 (2018 CIAS)
The Arteon has finally arrived in Canada!
The Passat GT looks decent and has some pretty cool sporty updates here and there. Overall, it's not bad. As for the Arteon, it's definitely the more impressive one. It has a solid and premium exterior and interior look. My only question is... why? It's very similar to the Audi A5 sportback. In fact they both share the same platform. What's even weirder is that the A5 sportback starts at $47,950 whereas the Arteon price will be "Starting under $48,000"; as stated here. Personally, I'm actually glad it's here because this means that Canadians will have more premium cars to choose from. I just don't want it to fail like how the Phaeton did. I guess we'll see.
