Volkswagen Phaeton 2008 Overview

Volkwagen's Phaeton is a luxury car for people who refuse to flaunt their wealth. If you can afford a hand-built luxury car but don't need to go around with a hood ornament to proclaim your arrival, then you may find that this expensive new VW more than meets your needs. Volkswagen is attempting to move upscale and the Phaeton is its new flagship luxury sedan, built alongside its platform-mate, the Bentley Continental GT. The VW Phaeton is available in three models, namely a 3.2-litre V6, a 4.2-litre V8 and a 6.0-litre W12, all mated to an automatic tiptronic transmission and all impressively powerful. Only the long wheelbase body style is sold in this region. The Phaeton includes as standard equipment such things as a navigation system, all-wheel drive, air suspension, draft-free four-zone automatic climate controls with vents hidden behind wood doors, 12-way front power seats and a long list of safety and driver-assist technologies. Standard safety features includes ABS brakes, anti-slip regulation, electronic differential lock, engine braking control, electronic brake force distribution and electronic stabilization technology, along with front, side and curtain airbags, and a tyre pressure monitor.
