Volkswagen Phaeton (03-15) - rated 3.5 out of 5

The Volkswagen Phaeton is a large luxury saloon which was launched here in the UK in the summer of 2003 after it was officially unveiled at the 2002 Geneva Motor Show.

Built on the same platform as the Bentley Continental GT and Bentley Continental Flying Spur, the Phaeton rivals the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Jaguar XJ, and was renowned for its interior comfort, roominess, practical 500-litre boot and sleek design.

Available in short wheelbase and long wheelbase variants, the Phaeton received two facelifts during its lifespan which upgraded the standard specification to include sat-nav and climate control, plus subtle design changes and cabin upgrades were introduced.
