The full-size SUV segment is booming in China and VW has been looking to compete in it for quite some time. Now, the brand is finally ready with the Teramont which will go on sale in March. The Teramont is specific to China and has been developed keeping local design tastes in consideration.
It will be made under the Shanghai-Volkswagen joint venture. The SUV will be offered with up to three engine options – a 2-litre TFSI with 186bhp or 220bhp and a 2.5-litre V6 developing 299bhp and 500Nm. While the TFSI engines will be locally made, the V6 will be imported from Germany. All cars will feature a 7-speed DSG and VW’s 4Motion all-wheel drive system.
