UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The list of Volkswagen crossovers with names starting with T will soon be replenished with another coupe-like modification of an existing model. At the end of this year, sales of the cross-coupe, which Volkswagen built together with the Chinese concern FAW, may begin.
The new product will be referred to as the Volkswagen Tayron X. It represents a new version of the crossover named Tayron, which is already sold in China.
According to the local press, which obtained the image of the new item, a cross-coupe was created based on the conceptual SUV Coupe presented at the 2019 Shanghai exhibition and inherited the concept design almost unchanged.
Compared to the standard Volkswagen Tayron, the roof line of the cross-coupe was underestimated by 25 mm and provided a more dynamic slope to the rear pillars. In addition, the novelty received original taillights and a new bumper with imitation of chrome tips of the exhaust system.
Like the original model, the Volkswagen Tayron X is slightly larger in size than the regular Tiguan, but slightly smaller than the elongated Tiguan Allspace. It is assumed that the engine range for the crossover and cross-coupe will be common: it is a two-liter turbo engine in two versions of the return – 180 and 220 hp A seven-speed robot will be offered in conjunction with the motor, and an all-wheel drive system will be installed for a surcharge.
According to rumors, the Volkswagen-FAW joint venture was planning to officially unveil the new product at the Beijing Motor Show, due in April. However, due to the coronavirus epidemic, the capital’s exhibition may be rescheduled, which means that the Tayron X cross-coupe will debut later – possibly at some individual event.
