Volkswagen Talagon debuts in China as VW’s largest SUV yet

2 min read

There’s a new largest Volkswagen SUV in the globe. Certainly, the Atlas is huge, but the new VW Talagon is bigger. U.S. potential buyers should not get way too worked up about this expose, even though — the Talagon was just unveiled at the Shanghai Vehicle Display in China, and VW hasn’t given any indication that it will be accessible for sale outside of Asia yet.

Even with it expanding four.5 inches in size over the Atlas, the Talagon is nonetheless based on VW’s MQB Evo platform. That would make it 202.8 inches in overall size, which would spot it on the greater side of the a few-row crossover spectrum. The Chevy Traverse and Jeep Grand Cherokee L nonetheless outpace it, but VW is acquiring near. There will be both 6-seat and 7-seat configurations to acquire benefit of the dimensions. 

VW suggests the exterior style is meant to be a fusion of SUV and MPV. The front has a tall, blocky form to it, whilst the rear is softer with much more minivan-like curved edges. The Talagon’s inside is exactly where the bash really begins, even though. You’ll see that it’s sporting VW’s latest inside style language and tech. It has an intriguing floating component exactly where the equipment selector and other crucial controls are housed. We can see that it’s functioning the similar, new infotainment technique identified on the ID.four, and it has a digital instrument cluster, way too. Ambient lights is taking centre phase from the front to the back again of the Talagon.

The 2nd row’s captain’s chairs are even quilted and adorned with contrast-coloured stitching. Very doorway panel styles grace the first and 2nd rows. Truthfully, this may be just one of the most effective Volkswagen interiors we’ve viewed in a prolonged time. It’s lightyears improved than the unimaginative Atlas, and we’d really like to see it in a car accessible in the U.S.

VW planted its 2.5-liter turbocharged VR6 less than the hood of the leading spec model, and hooked it up to the 7-velocity DSG computerized and all-wheel travel. Nevertheless, a normal 2.-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will also be accessible. Do not read through way too a lot into the engine solutions, as they’re what VW sees in shape for the Chinese market place and wouldn’t necessarily be the powertrain solutions for a U.S.-bound Talagon. We’re not accurately yearning for one more large SUV in these sections, but we confident wouldn’t brain the Talagon’s inside in the Atlas.
