The German concern seems to have guessed with the new model and its design. The crossover in the Chinese market has received almost rush demand, and the number of cars sold is constantly growing.

Sales of the Volkswagen Tharu crossover have been growing for the fourth month in a row since entering the market. At the end of January 2019, only 12,600 copies were sold, an increase of 23% compared to the results of December 2018. And this is happening against the background of a general decline, which is observed in the Chinese automobile market. It perfectly shows the excitement around the German model.

The car is built on a single platform with Skoda Karoq, so the dimensions are quite comparable. The crossover is 4,453 mm long, 1,841 mm wide. Height – 1,620 mm, with a wheelbase of 2,680 mm. Now the car is available in 6 different versions at prices ranging from 169,800 to 229,800 yuan.

As a power unit on the crossover, the proposed line of 1.4 and 2.0 liter turbo engines capable of developing up to 150 and 186 horsepower. A little later, a modification with a 1.2-liter turbo engine for 116 horsepower will appear. Together with all the units can work as a manual transmission on six speed, and a robotized transmission on seven steps. There is no all-wheel drive.

Meanwhile, Volkswagen introduced the updated Multivan T6.1. The current version of the minivan has been on the market for four years now and the logical stage of a small update has come up.
