Volkswagen Tiguan car, VW Tayron SUV, Tayron India launch details, Beijing Motor Show

The all-new Volkswagen Tayron SUV has been officially revealed at the ongoing Beijing motor show 2024. China is the first market where this SUV will go on sale, and it will arrive in India sometime in 2025. Do note that the China-spec model is called the Tiguan L Pro and comes in a five-seater configuration. Some markets will also get a seven-seat iteration and will use the Tayron nameplate, although it is essentially a stretched version of the five-seater Tiguan revealed in September last year.

  2. Can be ordered with 2WD and 4WD setups
  3. Gets three digital displays, including one for the front passenger

Volkswagen Tayron design, dimensions

The new Tayron SUV has a lot in common with VW's latest global SUV line-up. The slightly rounded look on the new Tiguan is carried over to the Tayron, and it additionally gets an aggressive-looking front bumper with a contrast black finish for the fascia on the top-spec R variant; regular variants get a slightly less aggressive look.

The Tayron's fascia is near identical to the 5-seater Tiguan.

In profile, the Tayron is very similar to the Tiguan with its blacked-out, flared wheel arches and large glasshouse, but its obviously longer than the latter, with most of the additional length having gone into the wheelbase. The new Tayron is 4,735mm long, 1,859mm wide and 1,682mm high. This makes it 197mm longer, 17mm wider and 43mm taller than the five-seat Tiguan, and the wheelbase is longer by 111mm. At the rear, the Tayron gets a well-sculpted tailgate, wraparound tail lamps with a connecting LED light bar, and a blacked-out rear bumper.

Volkswagen Tayron interior, features

The interior of the Tayron is identical to the new five-seat Tiguan that is on sale abroad. The dashboard has a minimalistic look that’s dominated by screens. There are many as three screens on offer – the main infotainment system, the digital instrument cluster and one on the passenger side of the dashboard. The infotainment display incorporates a backlit slider controller at the bottom, similar to the Tiguan. All three screens run VW’s latest MIB4 digital interface.  

The Tayron's dashboard features as many as three screens.

There are new-look AC vents at the sides, and the centre console has a very neat layout with a wireless charging pad, a rotary dial for the drive selector, audio controls and two cupholders. Interestingly, there’s also a large storage area below the centre console, much like we see in born-EVs. And while there aren’t many physical controls, the steering wheel does feature some traditional buttons and switches.

Some of the feature highlights include powered driver and front passenger seats with memory function, 10-point massage seats with heating and ventilation, wireless phone charging, a 360-degree camera, head-up display, dual-zone climate control and an ADAS suite.

Volkswagen Tayron powertrain, performance  

In China, the Tayron is being offered with a sole 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol engine in two states of tune. Both versions come mated to a 7-speed DCT gearbox and it gets an optional all-wheel drive system as well. The entry-level variant produces 184hp and 320Nm of torque, while the higher-spec variant produces 217hp and 350Nm of torque.

The Tayron gets a pair of 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engines in China.

Volkswagen could also offer the 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel and 1.5-litre petrol plug-in hybrid powertrains from the five-seat Tiguan (available in other markets) with the Tayron. The PHEV uses a 19.7kWh battery pack that is claimed to offer an electric range of up to 100km. It remains to be seen which of these powertrains will be brought to India, although it is likely to be a petrol-only model. The new Tayron is based on Volkswagen’s new MQB EVO platform that also underpins the new Skoda Kodiaq, among other VW Group models.

Volkswagen Tayron India launch details

The new Tayron has been described by Volkswagen brand CEO Thomas Schafer as a global model. Following China, it will also be manufactured in Germany (Wolfsburg) and Mexico (Peubla). Additionally, the SUV will be assembled in India via CKD kits when it arrives here in 2025, and will rival the Jeep Meridian and the Skoda Kodiaq, among other similarly priced SUVs.
