AN entry level SE specification of the Volkswagen Arteon is being added to the range priced from £33,085.

It joins the current Elegance and R-Line models and initially will be available only with a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a seven-speed DSG gearbox.

A diesel variant will be introduced later in the year which will have the choice of manual or automatic transmissions.

The petrol-engined Arteon SE has a WLTP-confirmed 44.1 mpg on a combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 144g/km.

The SE is fitted with 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED lights, adaptive cruise control and a Discover Navigation system with 8.0-inch touch screen display and three-zone climate control as standard.

Volkswagen is also making some upgrades to the Elegance and R-Line models fitting them with 9.2-inch Discover Navigation Pro systems first seen on the latest Passat.

In addition to these updates the revised Arteon brings small revisions in CO2 emissions for two variants.

The 2.0-litre 272ps TSI DSG 4MOTION is now rated at 161g/km with no change in VED. However, the 2.0-litre 190ps TDI DSG 4MOTION variant has decreased to 130g/km CO2 which reduces its VED liability by £320, dropping the car's price to £39,025 in Elegance specification and £39,825 for the R-Line.
