The brand new Volkswagen Phideon high-end saloon makes its international debut in the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Together with the advent of the VW Phideon, which designed and was developed in Germany, Volkswagen is adding its model range and a vital column. Volkswagen has made use of the technical expertise of its own Chinese partner, SAIC Volkswagen when designing this car. The newest model will be also manufactured by SAIC Volkswagen. The Phideon sees the introduction of the newest Face of Volkswagen’s high-end saloons. Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design Volkswagen Brand: the newest Phideon, with its similarly strong and magnetic front end, its fluid and though just drawn lines as well as the extremely dynamic proportions, exudes maximum existence and superiority, whilst the Phideon progressive design corresponds to the higher level of its own technical inventions.
So this avant garde model, developed for our design aware Chinese customers in Europe, was born. Volkswagen design team is happy with the fact it was possible to derive the Phideon nearly straight from the breath taking eacute C Coup&, GTE concept car, that has been presented with only small changes, at Auto Shanghai in 2015. From a technical standpoint, the Phideon is the first Volkswagen to be based on the modular longitudinal matrix. The top-of the variety model – the Volkswagen Phideon 3.0 TSI 4MOTION that comes along with four wheel drive as a standard – is powered by 3.0 liter V6 turbocharged direct injection gasoline engine that makes 220 kW/300 PS.
The newest five seater from Volkswagen will even be accessible as a 2.0 TSI with front wheel drive. This design language describes the middle of the leading axle as well as the space between the front door show. Aside from the sharp contours of the bonnet, the front is characterized by the broad and relatively high radiator grille composed of four chrome bars, with two of the chrome plated crossbars framing the double Light-emitting diode headlights incorporated in the 3 dimensional structure of the radiator grille, the daring component comprising the grille, headlamp and Light-emitting diode daytime running lights forms the Face of the Volkswagen Phideon.
This design DNA may also be seen in the future high end saloons of the brand. The big wheel arches reaching far up to the car body are additionally defining design characteristics and underlining the dynamism of the VW Phideon. Just like the front end, a flat section of the surfaces also dominates the design of the back, accentuating the width of the car. The Volkswagen Phideon was designed as a five seater that was sporty, on one hand appealing to committed self motorists, while and on the other hand being totally suited to be used as a chauffeur driven limo with its generous spaciousness. The interior structures along with the dash were created to concentrate on driving dynamics in the cockpit and the specialized design. The design team has created a comfortable lounge setting.
