2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Toyota Avalon

The upcoming 2019 Volkswagen Arteon is finally nearing its fall 2018 USA release date. With that in mind, it's time to start looking at the Arteon in a bit more detail. To do that, we've decided to have our first comparison against the 2019 Arteon. Although all of the specs of the Arteon have not yet been released, we have enough information to warrant a matchup. Therefore, let's begin with the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs the 2019 Toyota Avalon!

Why have we chosen the 2019 Toyota Avalon? Well, for a few reasons. Like the Arteon, the Avalon is a full-size sedan that is the upper-tier choice within its brand. The Arteon is above the Jetta and the Passat and the Avalon is above the Corolla and Camry. Furthermore, the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon sports sedan is expected to have a starting MSRP that is very close to that of the released 2019 Avalon price range. With that all said, let's see how these sedan builds compare!

In terms of power, the 2019 Toyota Avalon has a bit of an advantage over the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon. However, let's look at the engine size. The 2019 Arteon has a much lighter engine yet is also very close in terms of power to the 2019 Avalon. Although the fuel economy data of the Arteon is not yet released, this likely means that the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon will have a much more fuel-efficient engine when compared to the 2019 Avalon. Furthermore, along with standard all-wheel drive, something the 2019 Avalon lacks, the 2019 Arteon sports sedan will also include:

  • Volkswagen Car-Net® with App-Connect
  • Park Distance Control

  • DCC® Adaptive Chassis Control
  • Classic Fastback Design
  • R-Line Style Package
