This German manufacturer is playing a major role in the Chinese market and the 2018 VW Teramont will be the latest addition to the lineup. The company prepares a new large crossover, which will come in the second half of year. It is basically the same model as new Atlas that is offered worldwide. The new crossover will be the largest vehicle based on a modular MQB platform, which is used for most of the VW’s model. It will be a flagship model in China and it will come with plenty of new design solutions and technologies. The new model is almost ready for the launch and we are pretty sure that it will happen very soon, probably already in late summer, as 2018 Teramont.
2018 VW Teramont design and features
The 2018 VW Teramont will be a completely new model for the Chinese market. This country is definitely one of the most important markets for the German manufacturer. We will see a large crossover, which is pretty much the same as the Atlas model, which is an all-new model for the North American and other markets. This new model will ride on the company’s famous MQB platform, and it will share most of its mechanical characteristics with models like Audi Q7 and new Skoda Kodiac. When it comes to styling, the 2018 VW Teramont will feature pretty much the same appearance as new Atlas. Although it will feature the same shape, we will probably see some differences inside. The interior design could come with some smaller modification, to meet specific demands of the Chinese market. Also, the list of equipment and standard features will be quite different.
2018 VW Teramont engines
When it comes to the powertrain, the situation could be bit different. We will probably see the same two gasoline units as in North America, but we could also see a diesel engine in the offer. The base model will probably feature the same 2.0-liter gasoline engine, which is good for about 185 horses. This engine could also come in configuration with 220 horses. The other engine is a 3.0-liter V6, which outputs 300 horsepower. When it comes to the diesel engine, we should see some of familiar TDI units available.
2018 VW Teramont release date
As we already mentioned, the new 2018 VW Teramont will come very soon, probably in next few months.
