Volkswagen Tiguan found another brotherSeptember 20, 2018
The German concern officially showed Volkswagen Tayron, created specifically for the Chinese market. The new car is a serial embodiment of the concept car Advanced Mid-Size SUV, which was presented in the spring of 2018 in Beijing. Recall, the release of this “SUV” began at the facilities of the JV FAW-Volkswagen in July this year.
Volkswagen Tayron received LED optics, a panoramic sunroof, and variants of 17-, 18- and 19-inch wheel disks. As we previously reported, the car will also sport a version of the R-Line: among the differences from the usual crossover are slightly more aggressive bumpers and two branch pipes of the exhaust system. This crossover the Chinese can only buy in a five-seater version.
The car is equipped with a petrol turbo four TSI capacity of 2.0 liters in two power options (186 or 220 hp). The engines come complete with an automatic transmission DSG-7. The same “stuffing” is also offered for Volkswagen Tiguan L and Teramont. Note, Tayron in China will be available and with all-wheel drive 4Motion.
At the core of Tayron is the modular platform MQB. In China, the novelty should occupy a niche between the Teramont and the “stretched” Tiguan L (in Europe – Allspace). Despite this, Tayron is shorter compared to the “long” Tiguan. So, the dimensions of the new crossover are 4 589 x 1 860 x 1 660 mm, wheelbase – 2 731 mm; the length, width and height of the Tiguan L are 4,712 x 1,839 x 1,673 mm, the wheelbase is 2,791 mm; and dimensions of Teramont – 5 039 x 1 989 x 1 773 mm, wheelbase – 2 980 mm.
The new Vokswagen crossover will go on sale in the Middle Kingdom by the end of 2018. The price of Volkswagen has not yet revealed. To date, Tiguan L in China can be bought for at least 223,800 yuan. Teramont costs at least 308,900 yuan. Information about the company’s plans to sell Tayron outside the PRC has not yet been received.
