No Greenlight for VW Phaeton in U.S., Yet

We posted news last week that Volkswagen would bring back its large luxury sedan, the Phaeton, to the U.S. in the near future. VW spokesman Kerry Christopher emailed us to say that while the company is indeed considering the U.S. market for a Phaeton launch, the final decision has not been made and no timetable was given.

Makes me wonder if VW is reconsidering at least partially due to the Genesis' success.


It might work if they cut the 60k MSRP in half. A VW of that cost is a little too steep. But I also think a 40k Hyundai is also ridiculous.
