Volkswagen Reveals Technical Details of Upcoming Tayron SUV

  • To be offered with strong-hybrid options
  • India launch by early-2025

Volkswagen Reveals Technical Details of Upcoming Tayron SUV

German automaker Volkswagen is developing a new three-row SUV for the global market. Dubbed the Tayron, the new model will be based on the next-gen VW Tiguan/Škoda Kodiaq platform and is expected to enter the Indian market by 2025.

While VW already sells a 5-seat SUV called the Tayron in China, the new model will be completely different.

Volkswagen Tayron: Platform

Unlike the China-only current model, the new Tayron is being engineered for multiple markets like North America and Europe. It will also be produced at VW’s German production facility in Wolfsburg. Upon launch, the Tayron will replace the Tiguan Allspace in the brand’s global lineup. 

The new SUV will be underpinned by the upgraded MQB platform that will also be used by the next-gen Passat and Tiguan. VW will offer the second-gen Tayron in both 5-seater (Coupe) and 7-seater (SUV) configurations.

Karlheinz Hell, head of engineering for Volkswagen’s mid-to-full-size models stated, “We will extend our existing SUV line-up globally with the second-generation Tayron, which is already under development and will go on sale by the middle of the decade.”

He added, “The increase in dimensions for the next Tiguan will also be reflected on the next Tayron. We want to keep a similar differentiation in size between the two.”

Volkswagen Tayron: Powertrain Details

The new-gen Tayron will be offered with both petrol and diesel powertrain options. This will include a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol and a 2.0-litre turbo diesel with 48V mild-hybrid tech. A seven-speed DCT automatic gearbox will be standard.

Volkswagen has also confirmed it will offer two petrol plug-in hybrid powertrain options. These models will produce around 272 bhp and offer an electric-only range of over 100 kms.

In India, the automaker will likely offer the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol motor that currently does duty on the Taigun.

Volkswagen Tayron: Launch, Rivals in India

The VW Tayron is expected to arrive in the Indian market by the first quarter of 2025 at the earliest. Upon launch, it will rival the likes of the Jeep Meridian and Škoda Kodiaq.
