The updated Volkswagen Phideon received a glowing logo

Volkswagen has updated its flagship Phideon sedan for the Chinese market - the new product was shown at the Beijing Motor Show. The model has been sold in China for four years, but is not particularly popular - only 14 thousand copies were sold last year. Restyling is designed to improve the situation and attract new customers.

Changes in the exterior design are minimal: the optics have been slightly modernized, the bumpers and radiator grille have been slightly changed. The most noticeable innovation was the contour-lit logo. At the same time, in terms of interior design, the sedan is inferior to its closest competitors, such as the Audi A6: Phideon does not have either a virtual instrument panel or touch-sensitive climate control buttons.

But the flagship boasts a rich set of additional equipment. The model is equipped with a mini-refrigerator (it is built into the back of the second row seats) and rear seats with ventilation and massage functions.

On the local market, Phideon can be purchased with a non-alternative two-liter TSI turbo engine producing 224 hp. It is combined with a 7-speed DSG robot and front-wheel drive. Previously, the model was offered with a hybrid power plant, but it was abandoned due to its unpopularity.
