The order books are now open for the new Volkswagen Phaeton

The order books are now open for the new Volkswagen Phaeton, prices for the revised model start at £46,195 for the 3.0-litre V6 TDI 240 PS engine, while the 6.0-litre W12 450 PS model costs £78,685 RRP on the road. The 3.0-litre V6 TDI is offered with a standard wheelbase and both models are available with a long wheelbase, giving an additional 120 mm of legroom to rear passengers.

The new Volkswagen Phaeton has the same front end as the Volkswagen Passat. 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 change. 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.

The interior of the Volkswagen Phaeton features new trim finishes with a new multifunction steering wheel design and the RNS 810 satellite navigation system and for the first time this system can be chosen with optional Google Maps.
