How about a well maintained Volkswagen Phaeton luxury saloon for less than the price of a Vento sedan? This is just what we have for you today. Check it out. This Volkswagen Phaeton is a 2010 model, and has valid insurance upto December 2019. It’s still with its first owner and the asking price is Rs. 13 lakhs, which makes it cheaper than the top-end petrol-automatic Vento TSI, priced at Rs. 17.23 lakhs for the GT Line trim. In fact, even the cheapest petrol automatic TSI Volkswagen Vento sells for Rs. 14 lakhs, making it a pricier than this super luxury Phaeton. This Phaeton has covered 51,080 Kms, which is nothing for the understressed petrol V6 engine it’s powered by.
Decades ago, the head of the Volkswagen group and Ferdinand Porsche’s grandson, Ferdinand Piech, sat down at the drawing board to design a car to be Volkswagen’s flagship sedan, the Phaeton was born. Volkswagen even introduced the Phaeton luxury saloon in India, as its flagship model that was priced at about Rs. 80 lakhs.
However, the car bombed spectacularly as it just couldn’t wean away Mercedes Benz S-Class and Audi A8 buyers. What this meant was, Volkswagen had to sell the leftover stock of the Phaeton imported into India at massive discounts of over 20 lakhs per car. All this has resulted in rock bottom resale value for the Phaeton, an excellent car that’s really built to last, a long, long time.
Going into the specifications of this Phaeton, it’s powered by a 3.6 liter V6 naturally aspirated, direct injection (FSI) petrol engine that produces 276 Bhp of peak power and 370 Nm of peak torque. The car can hit 100 Kph from standstill in just 8.6 seconds while top speed is an electronically limited 250 Kph.
The gearbox is a 6 speed torque converter automatic unit, again built to last, and help this car perform well as a relaxed mile muncher. Fast, very comfortable, built to last, and of course very rare, that’s the Volkswagen Phaeton for you. Interested to buy this one?
