At the moment, the car has only a factory index, and its appearance largely repeats the Volkswagen SMV concept car.

Volkswagen will soon unveil a production version of its largest crossover. At the moment, the car has been assigned the factory index VM416. The new Volkswagen is based on the flagship model Teramont. You can already take a look at the new crossover – the pictures were published by the authoritative edition Autohome. In terms of appearance, we note the similarity with the Volkswagen SMV concept car – this prototype was shown in China in the spring of 2019.

Note the very interesting design of the radiator grill, as well as the design of the headlights – in this case, the designers did not narrow the lights too much. In general, the car received a rather strict silhouette, and in the rear we note two trapezoid-shaped exhaust pipes, as well as a spoiler on the tailgate. The interior of the new crossover turned out to be very modern – it features a fully digital dashboard, a separate sensor unit for climate control, a large multimedia system screen, and an electronic gear selector.

It is already known that the length of the VW416 is 5 100 mm, which is 61 mm longer than that of the Teramont, and the distance between the axles will reach 3 100 mm.

The engine range will consist of two power units – a 2.0-liter TSI with 220 hp output, as well as a 2.5-liter turbo engine capable of producing 299 hp. In both cases, the engine will be paired with the proprietary DSG7 robotic transmission. For a surcharge, the crossover relies on an all-wheel drive system. As befits a flagship, the car will receive a large set of electronics and driver assistants.

Buyers will be able to look forward to adaptive cruise control, 3-zone climate control, frontal collision avoidance, blind spot monitoring and lane control. Also in the arsenal there is a function of automatic control of the head light, all-round cameras and a spectacular panoramic roof with a sunroof. The premiere of the new crossover is expected in the near future, and its sales will begin this fall.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen continues road tests of the new Volkswagen Transporter minibus. The tests take place on the roads in the Austrian Alps. It is noteworthy that for comparison, the car is tested in tandem with the current version of the Transporter.
