Volkswagen Teramont has been designed following the 2013 CrossBlue midsize crossover concept; gets distinctive appearance with subtle tweaks
Remember the Volkswagen CrossBlue Concept first showcased at 2013 Detroit Auto Show? It seems the German auto manufacturer has built a midsize crossover based on the CrossBlue Concept. The car is expected to be christened as Volkswagen Teramont. A prototype of the car has been spotted sans any camouflage in China.
The three row Volkswagen crossover comes almost identical with the concept unveiled three years back. But it gets a distinctive appearance with some subtle tweaks. The front fascia looks very aggressive with large radiator grille and massive bumper. The headlamps look sharp with dual units and they also sport integrated LED daytime running lights.
The radiator grille gets three horizontal slats garnished in chrome running between the headlamps. The front bumper looks muscular with the unusual shaped fog lamps sporting chrome trim and silver skid plate. The front bumper and headlamps have been redesigned compared to the concept model. The higher stance of the car also helps in enhancing the muscular appeal.
The side profile sports large alloy wheels with sporty design, roof rails, wing mirrors with integrated side turn indicators. The rear profile of Volkswagen Teramont features wrap around taillights with LED units, sleek and wide chrome trim running between the taillights. The rear bumper also looks muscular and features silver skid plate.
The Volkswagen Teramont is based on the widely used MQB platform. Dimensionally, the car measures 4,986 mm in length, 2,014 mm in width, and 1,732 mm in height. It appears larger, wider and taller than the outgoing Volkswagen Touareg. The Ford Explorer comes almost similar with the Volkswagen Teramont in terms of dimension.
Inside the cabin the car would come offering plenty of space and upmarket features. The spyshots reveal the dashboard, which sports a stylish dual tone appearance. It comes with a three spoke multifunction steering wheel, analog and digital combo instrument cluster. The centre console looks boxy and sharp with a large touchscreen infotainment system.
The concept suggested that the car would get power from a diesel electric hybrid powertrain. But it seems, the German auto manufacturer has decided to keep the powertrain conventional initially. The Teramont would come available with a 2.0 litre turbocharged four cylinder petrol and diesel engines initially. Also there would be a V6 petrol engine for the top end Teramont. Expect the car to hit the market sometime in late 2017.
