Volkswagen Tayron three-row SUV confirmed for global markets

Volkswagen Tayron Specifications and Details

Volkswagen is ready to introduce an all-new Volkswagen Tayron three-row SUV, the successor to the Tiguan AllSpace. In India and many global markets, Volkswagen will name it the ‘Tayron,’ except in the USA, where it will retain the ‘Tiguan’ name due to its popularity. This SUV will be distinct from the recently revealed 5-seater Tiguan and will utilize the MQB-Evo platform. It’s likely to arrive in India as a CKD (Completely Knocked Down) unit, with a likely launch by early 2025.

The upcoming Volkswagen Tayron, based on the MQB-Evo platform shared with the new Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq, will offer distinctive styling compared to the 5-seater Tiguan. Unlike the previous Tiguan AllSpace, which shared a similar three-row design, the Tayron will feature a unique exterior. There will also be a five-seater Tayron SUV coupe, but its availability in India is uncertain. Both the three-row and two-row Tayron models are likley to share interior layouts and features with the new Tiguan. Volkswagen aims to position the Tayron as a larger, genuine three-row SUV compared to the outgoing Tiguan AllSpace.

Engine and Performance

The Tayron will offer two engine options internationally: a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0-liter diesel engine. Both are equipped with 48V mild-hybrid technology and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In India, Volkswagen will exclusively offer the petrol variant and focus on a petrol-only strategy. While the Tayron will have both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive options globally, only the latter will be available in India. Additionally, the Tayron will introduce two petrol plug-in hybrid powertrains with electric-only ranges of 100 km, although their availability in the Indian market is uncertain, as Volkswagen explores the potential for hybrid offerings in India.

Will The Tayron come to India

The anticipated India launch of the Tayron is expected in early 2025, following the CKD assembly approach. In contrast to the Tiguan AllSpace, which arrived in 2020 as a CBU (Completely Built Unit), the Tayron will debut as a three-row petrol-only SUV, emphasizing Volkswagen’s commitment to the Indian market and its strategy for locally assembled vehicles.
