The new Phaeton features a reprofiled front end which mirrors the design of the new Passat unveiled this week in Paris. The new face comprises bi-xenon headlight units with LED running lights which frame a more imposing front grille above a redesigned front bumper with integrated LED fog lights. Newly designed rear light units sit above a revised bumper, while new alloy wheel designs complete the exterior changes.
Inside the cabin, new trim finishes are complemented by a new multifunction steering wheel design and full colour display within the instrument cluster. The RNS 810 satellite navigation system is fitted as standard which, for the first in a Volkswagen, can be chosen with optional Google Maps. Other entertainment options include the powerful 1,000-watt Dynaudio soundpack, which includes a 12 channel digital amplifier and 12 speakers.
Built in Volkswagen's transparent factory in Dresden, all new Phaeton models continue to offer comprehensive safety and security equipment as standard with 4Motion four-wheel drive, eight airbags and laminated glass. Other standard equipment includes Continuous Damping Control (CDC) adjustable air suspension, leather upholstery, 18-way adjustable electric seats and one of the most advanced air conditioning systems in the world.Volkswagen unveils revised Phaeton
