Following its debut at the Beijing Motor Show earlier this year,
Volkswagen has announced pricing and specification for the new Phaeton
luxury saloon as it is available to order from Retailers from today. 
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 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.
