Volkswagen prices the new Phaeton

Volkswagen has revealed pricing information and model details for its new flagship Phaeton luxury saloon.

Prices for the revised model start at £46,195 for the 3.0-litre V6 TDI model, and £78,685 for the 6.0-litre W12, while the latest Phaeton models continue to offer comprehensive safety and security, including 4MOTION four-wheel drive, eight air bags and laminated glass.

Car insurance bands for the new model have yet to be confirmed.

The new Phaeton models also feature a redesigned front which mirrors the design of the new Passat, which includes bi-xenon headlight units with LED running lights.

The car's rear has been redesigned too, with the rear light units positioned above a revised bumper, while new alloy wheel designs compliment other changes to the exterior.

Inside the cabin, trim finishes are exquisitely complemented by a new multi-function steering wheel design and full colour dashboard display. The RNS 810 satellite navigation system is fitted as standard, as is a 1,000-watt sound system, which includes a 12-channel digital amplifier and speakers.
