Report: The 2017 Volkswagen Phaeton to attempt being more comfy than Mercedes S-Class

One of the easiest associations with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, besides luxury, refinement, and build quality, is comfort, and it’s something the S-Class always prided itself over, in addition to many other things.

However, there are plenty of other cars out there who come very close if not exceed the S-Class in comfort in a variety of ways. But now, Volkswagen seeks to up the ante with comfort by being more than said S-Class.

A report hails in from Auto Motor und Sport in Germany, who learned the new Phaeton is expected to be launched in late 2016 or early 2017, as “the most comfortable car in its segment.”

Not much else is known about the new Phaeton, though you can expect it to be as much of a luxury car and just as technologically advanced as the first generation model. For instance, its adaptive suspension will be able to “read” the road using cameras and sensors to detect road imperfections. As a result, the suspension will then prime itself to prepare for the imperfection while ensuring the car remains level.
