Volkswagen Phaeton Facelift side2015 Volkswagen Phaeton has received so many updated that when we saw them we were very happy. However, what made me really sad is that the car is going to go on sale in China only.

The Phaeton facelift will be distributed in China only because the country is model's largest market by far. The exterior modifications include new graphics for the front and tail LEDs as well as many specific features that distinguish this particular model. Although there aren't any pictures of the interior in our gallery, we assure you that it is more exciting than the outer shell.


At the front the car has received new graphics for the LED headlights as well as they go a bi-xenon treatment. The lower grill features more chrome, while the side mirrors received LED turn signals and have heat-function. Electric sunroof with wind deflector also comes as a standard as are the redesigned LEDs for the rear-lights.

Inside the cabin is where the occupants will meet the true meaning of luxury. At the back, the rear-seaters will enjoy dual 10.2-inch screens, while at the front there is an 8-inch touchscreen which shows the important information. The interior trim is decided in wooden theme, which can optionally be enhanced with DYNAU DIO Temptation sound system.


There are three output variants for the Phaeton, each mated to a six-speed transmission that drives the four wheels. The firs one is the V6 FSI 3.0-liter engine which pumps out 250 hp (184 kW) and 310 Nm (229 lb-ft) of torque.
