    Nice! There's actually an extra colour (the Oryx Pearl White) on the NZ site which isn't in the PDF file I posted above earlier.

    Anybody know if the Arteon will have a Qi wireless charger in the center console for the phone? I found some info in the Irish spec sheet that said you get it when you upgrade the entertainment system. One would assume because we only get the "R Line" version which has top everything, that it would also be included, but I can't find any information to confirm it.

Corp discount plus GST savings from Novated lease will push it down to about $60k drive away I am hoping.

    Incidentally, assuming this is not rated as a fuel efficient car, Luxury Tax threshold comes in at $65,094 for this FY so will be interesting to see if the RRP comes in below that.[/CENTER]
    No way will an Arteon be 60k drive away! Thats still in passat territory. Your looking athigh 60's early 70s sorry to say!

    I think you are little confused. A $70K RRP with a corporate discount (anywhere from 5-10% off) and then a GST saving (10%) which you get with a novated lease, will bring it down to low 60K at most drive away.

    Car Advice reporting $65,490. If accurate, that is an excellent price for mine.

    That's the stuff! So say $67-$68k with onroads. Maybe $70k if you want the premium sound & wheels and onroads.

    Minus the corporate discount, minus GST if you're leasing it.

    Giggdity giggdity...awwwwwriiiiiight.

    So I asked VW Australia on Facebook if the Arteon will come with a Qi charger. They said no.

    If that's true...it's a bit rubbish. Seeing as it comes in the Skoda Superb, and is included in the Arteon models overseas when you option in the upgraded entertainment system. And now I've also found a couple of youtube video reviews of the Arteon where they mention the Qi charger.

    In other news - watch this.. 310kph in an Arteon (not standard obviously): YouTube

    Oh well... would have been nice to have but not a deal breaker. You need to plug it in to use Apple Carplay and Android auto so it charges at the same time anyways
