2021 Volkswagen Arteon R-Line: In pictures
Volkswagen Malaysia launched the Arteon facelift in the country in July this year and is proving to be a great seller for the automaker. The limousine is offered in a single variant – R-Line 2.0 TSI 4 Motion At a price of 248,693 RM that is almost 27,000 RM more than the previous model. It includes a five-year unlimited mileage guarantee and three years of free maintenance.
