Volkswagen can adapt the Chinese crossover to the European market

November 16, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Volkswagen recently announced that a new crossover will appear in the European model range by 2024, the production of which will be established at the Wolfsburg plant.

Business Insider suggested that the German concern, speaking of a novelty for the European market, means the Chinese Tayron. But in this case, he will be forced to compete with the popular Tiguan. Recall that the presentation of the Tayron cross was held in China the year before last. It is based on the same architecture as the Tiguan, and it also has similar engines, while differing from the European car only in its appearance in the T-Roc style.

According to one of the versions, the crossover, originally created for the Chinese market, will be brought to Europe based on its success in the PRC. At the same time, the German company will presumably risk not selling the Tayron with internal combustion engines to European customers, offering it exclusively with hybrid units. The hybrid cross is powered by a 1.4-liter turbo engine and an electric motor with a total output of 218 hp.

According to another version, the new product will become a kind of alternative to the 7-seater VW Tiguan Allspace. In China, a 3-row variation is not offered, however, such a car will be built specifically for the European market.

In addition, some time ago it became known that the Volkswagen Touareg crossover was equipped with a remote parking system. It should be emphasized that a new useful option is the ability to control via a smartphone.
