New seven-seat Volkswagen Tayron SUV to be Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace replacement: report


Volkswagen Australia could drop its Tiguan Allspace by the end of this year, before the Tayron likely taking its place in 2025 

Volkswagen is set to replace its Tiguan Allspace with the upcoming Tayron SUV, a model marketed as the Tiguan L Pro in China. 

According to new reports by Autocar, the Tayron will step into the Tiguan Allspace’s role as Volkswagen’s seven-seat offering. 

The Tayron is planned to be manufactured at several facilities including China, Germany and Mexico.

Autocar also states that the UK-delivered Tayron will be available from launch with either a 2.0-litre turbo petrol or 2.0-turbo diesel engine, with both powertrains featuring 48-volt mild-hybrid technology and a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. 

A PHEV variant has also been confirmed with a claimed all-electric range of around 100km. 

Volkswagen Australia has already confirmed that the Tayron will be coming to Australia “beyond 2024” wearing that nameplate, but has not detailed a more specific timing for the release.

The Tayron is expected to launch in the United Kingdom sometime in 2025, so expect similar release timing for the model down under. 

What we know about the new Tayron 

The seven-seat Tayron SUV will sit between the new five-seat Tiguan and the flagship Touareg large SUV.

The model will measure in at 4735mm long, 1859mm wide and 1682mm tall, making it 1mm longer, 20mm wider, but 7mm shorter than the current BW Tiguan Allspace sold in Australia.

Kerb weight for the Tayron is 1790kg versus 1612kg for the existing Tiguan Allspace. 

The new Taycon will be built on the MQB-Evo platform which will bring suspension upgrades and 48-volt mild-hybrid capabilities. 

Interestingly, the Tayron will remain to be called the Tiguan in some markets such as the USA.
