2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs. 2019 Ford Fusion

A person new to the online operations of Spitzer Volkswagen would be excused if they think the dealership is focused on the automaker's excellent lineup of crossover SUVs. However, there is at least one model that will quickly set those notions straight. A comparison of the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon vs. 2019 Ford Fusion is a battle between two of the most high-performing and well-equipped members of the midsize sedan segment of the automotive industry. When the 2019 VW Arteon finally arrives at the Spitzer Volkswagen showroom, it will offer a striking silhouette that will distinguish it from the Fusion as well as offer a single powertrain that offers better performance than most available versions of the 2019 Fusion. Anyone who would like to start the pre-ordering process for the 2019 VW Arteon should make an appointment by contacting a Spitzer VW product expert today.

One of the areas where the 2019 Volkswagen Arteon might be able to draw attention away from buyers who would normally choose the Ford Fusion is with its inherent interior space. Certainly, the fastback exterior design and steep fastback are unique among the options in this class, but these elements don't negatively affect passenger comfort. The all-new 2019 Arteon is significantly longer than the outgoing Volkswagen CC, which was the automaker's previous direct competitor to the Fusion. In fact, all five available seats offer plenty of head and legroom for even taller passengers. Even from an aesthetic point of view, the 2019 Arteon features premium elements like frameless windows, LED front and rear lights and a rear spoiler as standard equipment. Finally, the 2019 VW Arteon is protected by the automakers People First Warranty.

Performance Specs

Volkswagen offers a single powertrain option for the 2019 VW Arteon. Each of the trim grades that will be coming to Spitzer VW will be powered by a turbocharged, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine making 268 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All of that power will be sent to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base engine of the 2019 Fusion is a naturally aspirated four-cylinder that doesn't make as much power as the VW power plant. To get an engine that exceeds the performance of the Arteon, Ford buyers will have to opt for a V-6 available on only the Fusion's top-end models.
