Volkswagen's flagship saloon has finally revealed all! These spy-shots show a completely undisguised Phaeton prototype on a late night photoshoot, complete with a totally new front end and a fresh set of LED tail-lights at the rear.
The facelift will be the third since the Phaeton was introduced and Volkswagen will be hoping to finally establish their luxury saloon in the fiercely competitive market which already includes BMW's 7-Series and the Mercedes S-Class.
Inside, the luxurious cabin will remain with high quality materials in abundance. Changes will come to the centre console arrangement and dashboard, making controls easier to use and to bring the interior in line with big-name rivals.
Under the bonnet, rumours suggest that there will be a range of engines, including a new V10 diesel and a range of efficient turbocharged petrol engines.
The new Phaeton will be unveiled at the Beijing Motor Show later this month.
