There’s a brand-new greatest Volkswagen SUV on the planet. Yes, the Atlas is significant, yet the brand-new VW Talagon is larger. UNITED STATE customers should not obtain as well functioned up concerning this expose, however– the Talagon was simply disclosed at the Shanghai Automobile Program in China, as well as VW hasn’t provided any kind of indicator that it will certainly be readily available for sale outside of Asia.
Regardless of it expanding 4.5 inches in size over the Atlas, the Talagon is still based upon VW’s MQB Evo system. That makes it 202.8 inches in total size, which would certainly position it on the bigger side of the three-row crossover range. The Chevy Traverse as well as Jeep Grand Cherokee L still exceed it, yet VW is obtaining close. There will certainly be both seven-seat as well as six-seat setups to benefit from the dimension.
VW states the outside layout is indicated to be a blend of SUV as well as MPV. The front has a high, heavyset form to it, whereas the back is softer with even more minivan-like rounded sides. The Talagon’s inside is where the celebration actually starts. You’ll see that it’s showing off VW’s most recent interior decoration language as well as technology. It has an interesting drifting aspect where the equipment selector as well as various other crucial controls are housed. We can see that it’s running the exact same, brand-new infomercial system discovered on the ID.4, as well as it has an electronic tool collection, as well. Ambient illumination is taking spotlight from the front to the rear of the Talagon.
The 2nd row’s captain’s chairs are also quilted as well as embellished with contrast-colored sewing. Pretty door panel develops poise the 2nd as well as very first rows. Honestly, this might be just one of the very best Volkswagen insides we have actually seen in a long period of time. It’s lightyears far better than the uncreative Atlas, as well as we would certainly enjoy to see it in an automobile readily available in the UNITED STATE
VW grew its 2.5-liter turbocharged VR6 under the hood of the leading specification version, as well as hooked it as much as the seven-speed DSG all-wheel as well as automated drive. A conventional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will certainly additionally be readily available. Do not review excessive right into the engine choices, as they’re what VW chooses for the Chinese market as well as would not always be the powertrain choices for a U.S.-bound Talagon. We’re not precisely yearning for an additional large SUV in these components, yet we sure would not mind the Talagon’s inside in the Atlas.
