2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Lexus IS

2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs 2019 Lexus IS

Now that we have a final and complete look at the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon sedan, we can see how it matches up in all fields against a true competitor on the market. Our previous comparison of the 2019 Arteon was against the Toyota Avalon, another full-size sedan from a more consumer-focused brand. This time, we’ll look straight at the luxury competition. Today, the opponent of the Arteon is the 2019 Lexus IS.

Luxury brands are expensive. That’s a pretty definitive and objective statement. However, most of the time, this money is put to good use with plenty of power, performance features, and technology on display. The question is whether or not Volkswagen can match up to these standards of a luxury vehicle at a lower price. It’s the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs the 2019 Lexus IS!
