Launched in Singapore near the start of 2018, the Volkswagen Arteon was on display at the recently concluded Singapore Motor Show. Customers in the republic are able to choose from two 2.0 TSI variants – R-Line with 19-inch Montevideo wheels (seen here) and R-Line with 20-inch Rosario wheels.

A sprint from zero to 100 km/h is claimed to take just 5.6 seconds. Also fitted is Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC), offering drivers a number of drive modes – Eco, Normal, Comfort, Sport and Individual – along with an XDS electronic differential lock.

In terms of equipment, you get LED lighting units front and rear, Silver Rise aluminium inlays, leather-wrapped sports steering wheel, Nappa leather seats with “carbon-style” inner faces and R-Line embroidery, ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, 14-way power-adjustable seats, 12.3-inch Active Info Display, heads-up display, 9.2-inch touchscreen, Discover Pro infotainment system and a 700-watt Dynaudio sound system with 12 speakers and 12-channel digital amplifier.

The Arteon is priced at SG$227,400 (RM680,837) for the variant with the smaller wheels, whereas the one fitted with 20-inch units goes for SG$232,400 (RM695,807). These prices are inclusive of COE but before a Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES) penalty of SG$20,000 (RM59,861).

        • At the next CNY reunion dinner, your SG cousin can proudly proclaim his Vios is more expensive than your Merc C Class and BMW 3 Series. Let him be.

        Why don’t you also compare the salary of Singaporeans.

        Average Singapore Gomen servant earns SGD5000 (RM17k)

        Average 1.6 million Putrajaya gomen servant earns RM1200

        RM17,000 vs RM1200

          Highest medical cost.
          Highest retirement cost (ekceli no retirement, old still work cleaning foodcourts).
          Highest stress & pressure.
          Highest ’14th floor’ rate.
          Highest living amongst foreigners.

    Finally the CC replacement is here and only loyalists will buy it. The other customers will rather opt from the C Class or 3 Series for the badge prestige.

      But this car will sell well in the target markets, such as China, Europe, South America and South Africa. These 4 markets alone are bigger than any other markets in the world combined.
