Earlier this year, the first images of the facelifted VW Phideon flagship sedan surfaced on the web courtesy of China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
Seen from the side, the 2021 VW Phideon only reveals new alloy wheels, while at the back the LED taillights gain dynamic indicators and a new signature. Last but not least, the big sedan adopts the new VW logo and a new font for the Phideon lettering on the boot lid.
When it comes to engines, customers no longer have the option of the 3.0-liter V6 AWD powertrain or the 2.0-liter plug-in hybrid. As a result, the 2.0-liter TSI four-cylinder gasoline engine rated at 224 PS (221 HP) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque remains the only choice. It’s hooked to a seven-speed DSG driving the front wheels.
SAIC-VW will launch the 2021 Phideon on the Chinese market in October.
