Volkswagen is getting ready to launch yet another China-only product: the Tayron.
The images shared by China’s AutoHome reveal a few styling tweaks over the show car that debuted last week, which revolve around the headlamps and taillights, mostly.
The chrome trim and other highlights of the study are said to be introduced on the upcoming R-Line grade. No other details are known about it so far, but one of the images reveals the ‘380 TSI’ badge, below the ‘Tayron’ logo. This is a clear indication that it uses a turbocharged petrol engine, with local media reporting that it’s actually the 2.0-liter turbo with 220 horsepower, from the larger Teramont.
The new Volkswagen Tayron should be presented officially during the 2018 Beijing Auto Show, which kicks off on April 25 for the press, and four days later for the public. Before the end of the year, the SUV should go on sale locally.
Production should commence in the coming months, and putting it together will be the FAW-Volkswagen join venture.
