We want to note immediately that, with the exception of the Chinese market, where Volkswagen Phideon is sold, the new Volkswagen Arteon is the top model of the large Volkswagen family. And as the main competitor of the novelty chose the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. However, we can safely write down competitors of the German novelty and representatives of the European D-class like Opel Insignia Grand Sport , Renault Talisman and Kia Stinger .

It is sad to realize that in the model range of one of the leaders of the world car industry, after the production of the Volkswagen Phaeton representative sedan was canceled, the top-end offer was a five-door elevator, posi- tioned as a sports sedan. It’s a pity that Volkswagen is not able to release a worthy competitor to representatives of the big German troika ( Audi A8 , BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class ).
