Since then, the Phaeton continued to be a disappointment for VW. And now, the automaker looks to be having a second go at it, but with further help from Audi
this time around.
According to the report, the second generation Phaeton will be positioned between the Audi A6
and A8, but priced below the current model. It will likely be offered with a standard four-cylinder engine, an optional high-output V6, and a hybrid. Its styling will likely be more aggressive than the first generation, which was criticized as being too conservative.
