Volkswagen has officially revealed an updated version of its Phaeton for China where it is the main market for the brand’s flagship luxury sedan.

Powering the large sedan are a selection of three petrol engines: a 3.0-litre V6, 3.6-litre V6, and 4.2-litre V8. Output from each engine stands at 250PS, 280PS, and 335PS respectively, linked to a 4Motion all-wheel drive system.

On the outside, the Phaeton receives updated bi-xenon headlights at the front and new LED taillights at the back. Elsewhere, the radiator grille is chromed out with other matte pieces of trim. Also added are electric folding and heated side mirrors with integrated LED signal lights, and powered sunroof.

Inside, a rear seat entertainment system has now been added featuring two 10.2-inch screens while at the front, there is an 8-inch touchscreen display. The infotainment systems are hooked up to a Dynaudio Temptation sound system.

Not officially available in Malaysia, the 12-year old Phaeton is expected to be replaced by an all-new model in 2017. 

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
