One place where there is very little difference between the five trim levels of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is performance specifications. All five trim levels have a 2.0 L Turbo engine that creates up to 268 horsepower. They do differ in fuel economy, but the only difference is for the base trim level. Every trim level achieves 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, except the base trim level, which gets up to 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

The base trim level is also the only trim level that does not have 4MOTION ® all-wheel drive, which you can probably tell by the trim level titles. Instead, the SE is a front-wheel drive vehicle, which is very common in sedan-style vehicles, and this difference in drive train is probably what causes the slight difference in fuel economy, as all-wheel drive vehicles tend to be less fuel-efficient. On the flipside, all-wheel drive vehicles have the advantage of getting more traction.
