PACE 2022: Get up close with the dynamic Volkswagen Arteon – sporty R-Line design, 280 PS, 4Motion AWD

The Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) is where you’ll find the best deals on new and pre-owned premium cars, and it’s taking place this month at the Setia City Convention Centre (SCCC) from March 19-20.

With the ongoing sales tax exemption – 50% for CBU imports and 100% for CKD locally-assembled cars – set to end on June 30, there’s no better opportunity to enjoy some savings. Purchasers at PACE will also get to enjoy special perks and there are some great prizes up for grabs.

Among the many vehicles that will be present at PACE is the latest Volkswagen Arteon, which is offered in the sporty R-Line trim and benefits fully from the sales tax exemption as it is locally assembled in Malaysia.

Stylish from several angles, the Arteon also has plenty of grunt, as its EA888 2.0 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine puts out 280 PS and 350 Nm of torque, which is good for a 0-100 km/h time of 5.6 seconds.

The mill is mated to a seven-speed DSG wet dual-clutch transmission, and you’ll get all-paw traction thanks to the 4Motion all-wheel drive system. If that isn’t enough, Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) is included as standard, giving you access to various drive modes that affect the characteristic of the adaptive dampers.

Inside, you’ll find an ergonomic cabin with Nappa leather upholstery, a triple-zone climate control system, powered front seats, the Digital Cockpit instrument cluster and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. The last item is linked to a 9.2-inch Discover Pro touchscreen infotainment system with wireless App-Connect, so Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and be used without depending on a cable connection.

The Volkswagen brand will be joined by other premium marques like Mercedes-Benz (represented by Hap Seng Star), BMW and MINI (represented by Auto Bavaria), Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ford and Hyundai. Motorcycles from BMW Motorrad and Harley-Davidson will also be part of the show for those looking for a two-wheeler.
