A very nice interior; here in dark red over white. A daring combination for Volkswagen.
The dials are partly analogue and partly digital, with a large screen between the dials.
Graphics are looking very sharp.
The infotainment system with Volkswagen’s App-Connect.
The second row of seats with plenty of space for the legs and head, as this gentleman kindly demonstrates. Love the white headrests. Let’s see how long these stay clean in a dusty town like Beijing…
The third row with two more seats, and even with these seats up there is still…
… quite a lot of space for the beer.
The turbocharged 2.5 VR6.
Proper roof rails and a stylish rear end with a shiny bar connecting the lights, and a subtle bumper with integrated pipe tips, and they are both real.
The Teramont; the new flagship of the Volkswagen SUV lineup in China. Note V6 badge in the grille.
