Volkswagen Tayron spied on Nurburgring ahead of unveil

Expect the Volkswagen Tayron to get a choice of mild-hybrid petrol & TDI diesel units and two plug-in hybrid options.

Volkswagen is all set to unveil its all-new Tayron SUV sometime later this year. The new Volkswagen Tayron will replace the 7-seater Tiguan (called Tiguan AllSpace in certain markets). Now, the 7-seater SUV has been spied without camouflage ahead of its global unveil.

The uncamouflaged Tayron was seen testing at the Nurburgring. The images also reveal that the Tayron will carry forward a design similar to the previous-gen Tiguan, albeit with a slightly different front bumper featuring massive air intakes on either end. The front grille will be more sportier, but the headlights look nearly identical to its smaller 5-seater sibling. The VW Tayron will also share the same underpinnings as the Tiguan - both of them using the MQB EVO platform. This platform also underpins its cousin, the Skoda Kodiaq. Reports suggest that the VW Tayron will measure over 4.7 metres in length and have a longer wheelbase than the Tiguan to help accommodate the third row of seats.

Inside, the Tayron will come with Volkswagen's new 15-inch central touchscreen from the ID.7. It will also come with a digital instrument cluster, touch-sensitive controls on the dash and steering wheel and plenty of other physical buttons for some of its other features & tech as well.

In terms of powertrain, expect the Volkswagen Tayron to get a choice of mild-hybrid petrol & TDI diesel units and two plug-in hybrid options.
