In a 2018 comparison test that included the Hyundai and Jeep, the 2019 Volkswagen Phaeton placed fifth. Handling also proved to be another 2019 Volkswagen Phaeton weak spot and we found the steering to be numb.

The 2019 Volkswagen Phaeton, on the other hand, is a better package, as we noted in a 2017 First Test, thanks to its smooth powertrain and well-calibrated brakes that smoothly transition between regenerative and mechanical braking. However, since it isn’t a plug-in hybrid, the 2019 Volkswagen Phaeton doesn’t have much EV mode range and can only travel around 0.5 miles on electricity.A rearview camera with rear parking sensors is now standard on all models.
