At launch, the Volkswagen Phideon will come standard with a turbocharged 3.0 L V6 which produces 300 horsepower and 347 lb.ft. torque. Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel drive system is also standard on models equipped with the turbocharged V6 engine.

In 2017, an entry-level 2.0 L turbocharged four-cylinder Phideon will join the lineup. Later in the production run, a plug-in hybrid model is also expected.


The all-wheel drive Phideon will be built and sold in China starting in the 3rd quarter of this year. However, since it debuted in Geneva, there is a slight possibility it will be sold to other markets like Europe and the Middle East – but don’t expect to see the Volkswagen Phideon on U.S. soil anytime soon. The wounds of the failed Phaeton are still fresh in our memories.
