Volkswagen reveals new Phideon luxury sedan at Geneva Motor Show

Volkswagen reveals new Phideon luxury sedan at Geneva Motor Show

This year’s Geneva Motor Show has played host to the debut of a new luxury sedan from Volkswagen. Labelled Phideon, this new model has been designed specifically for China and will be positioned above the Passat when launched in the country later this year. 

The Phideon, which will eventually replace the ageing Phaeton in China, has been developed in conjunction with VW’s Chinese partner, SAIC Volkswagen. It looks rather understated and yet leaves a good impression thanks to its clean design and a proportionate silhouette. That being said, Volkswagen has been creative with the headlight and taillight design which use LEDs for visual appeal.

Underneath, the top-spec Phideon 3.0 TSI will feature four-wheel drive and a 3-litre V6 turbocharged petrol engine that produces 300bhp of power and 440Nm of torque. Additionally, Volkswagen will also offer a 2-litre TSI four-cylinder engines with front-wheel drive. A model with a plug-in hybrid drive is also planned for the future.

Limited to the Chinese market, the new Phideon will go on sale in the country by around August 2016 and will replace the Phaeton which has been around in the market for years now.
