At some point, the company 2020 Volkswagen thought of a complete cessation of production Faeton model. However, time has changed the mind. The reason for such thoughts served as a frank failure of previous generations. The car did not find a buyer, interested in them very little, preferring the more solid and vivid representatives of business-class Mercedes, BMW and Audi. Nevertheless, 2020 Volkswagen Phaeton -2018 years clearly demonstrates that the company is going to correct the situation and to make some deviation from its original plan for this model.
What can we say, it is the exterior is largely predetermined the failure of previous generations of Faeton. To say that the 2020 Volkswagen Phaeton -2018 years much has changed and become expressive, bright and incredibly attractive impossible. The design was quite simple, with some hint of improvement. Perhaps subsequent restyling correct the situation, because to do so the company needs to be sure.
The front part is made in the latest version of the Passat stylist. In the photo you can see that 2020 Volkswagen did not give up their traditions, but made some adjustments in accordance with modern trends and requirements of the buyer. However, the conclusion is still disappointing – the front car looks bland, despite the high-quality optics, elegant grille, air vents and other elements.
Looking at the car from the side, again recognize Passat B7 known to many, only a few elongated. No, the car does not look bad. But if you take the comparison Faeton -2018 year with the same BMW, Audi or Mercedes, 2020 Volkswagen is clearly losing.
Match to the back and what we see? Of course, Passat B7. Perhaps the company wanted to achieve such an outcome by linking its sedan and business class car common design features. Just received a revelation fail.
All impression of Faeton changes when peeking inside the cabin. That’s where the real German approach, the quality factor, quality and comfort. Since the model of business-class, back row was created so as to provide maximum comfort to two passengers. So called Faeton -2018, the five-seater can be divided. Of course, a third rear passenger fit without problems, but rather that there were two people.
The version with longer wheelbase is offered with two individual seats in the back row, equipped with electric drive systems setting position in the ten directions, massage and heating. Legroom is more than enough.
The driver was even luckier, because the seat was not less comfortable, but it is regulated in 18 directions. What is true in the richer equipment. While in the database you will get a seat with 12 setting areas. There is also a ventilation, heating, massage, working directly while driving.
To finish using leather, fabric, wood, plastic and soft carpet. The ergonomics of the cabin, interior – all done at the highest level of German, which allows the components include 2020 Volkswagen Phaeton – year to one of the best cars in its segment. In many 2020 Volkswagen components bypasses its competitors.
Since this is a business class car, talking about his equipment can be very long and tedious. Who argues that Faeton has everything that may be required of this vehicle segment. For example, standard equipment includes such items as:
- adaptive climate control for front and rear passengers

- on-board computer

Some versions offer a TV set in the lounge, built-in phone to negotiate, safety curtains, and more.

What can we say about the 2020 Volkswagen Phaeton? This car owners reviews which give clearly to understand the manufacturer that the car is good in all respects except for the design. Appearance – this is something the company 2020 Volkswagen should start work immediately.
Unfortunately, we can hardly expect in the near future any upgrades or facelift. Based on available data, the new generation of Foltsvagene Faeton going to release around 2020 year, not earlier. In addition, the model promises to reduce the class by one stage. Most likely, Faeton place in the segment of business vehicles will take another representative, or else for a while 2020 Volkswagen will leave that class, that does not sound very plausible.
Most importantly, he recognizes the failure of his 2020 Volkswagen Faeton. So there is every reason to hope that we will soon find out new information about the future of this, of course, a good car, which was just unlucky with the design.
The verdict is that – 2020 Volkswagen Phaeton is a great car, able to meet any needs of its owner, but at the same time finds its customers only among the connoisseurs of the brand and those who do not need bright appearance and need a reliable, powerful, comfortable car.
