2025 Volkswagen Tayron seven-seater previewed in leaked images

The replacement to the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace has been leaked in China, with the Tayron seven-seat SUV due in Australia next year.


What is expected to become the Volkswagen Tayron – the seven-seat successor to the Tiguan Allspace – surfaced online early courtesy of Chinese government documents, previewing the design of the German car giant’s upcoming family SUV.

The Tayron name has previously only been used for a larger twin to the Volkswagen Tiguan sold in China.

Last year Volkswagen confirmed the Tayron nameplate would be adopted globally on a new SUV to replace the Tiguan Allspace with the large SUV due in Australia no sooner than 2025.

The vehicle in these images is badged Tiguan L Pro, however UK publication Autocar reports it is the Chinese name for what will be sold elsewhere as the Tayron.

Despite initially being expected to adopt a different design to the new five-seat Tiguan, the second-generation Tayron appears to look identical to its smaller sibling, sharing the same front end, mirrors and tail-light cluster.

Documents filed with China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology show the Tiguan L Pro/second-generation Tayron measures 4735mm long, 1859mm wide and 1682mm tall, or 1mm longer, 20mm wider and 6mm lower than the outgoing Tiguan Allspace despite riding on the same 2791mm wheelbase.

The Tayron also is larger than the new-generation Tiguan across all dimensions, growing by 197mm in length, 17mm in width and 43mm in height.

It is likely the Volkswagen Tayron will be sold in Australia with a 2.0-litre petrol engine, with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission – and possibly 48-volt mild-hybrid technology.

The five-seat 2024 Volkswagen Tiguan

In Europe, the Volkswagen Tayron is expected to be offered with a choice of two plug-in hybrid systems, producing 150kW and 200kW respectively, both pairing electric motors with a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine.

An electric-only driving range of more than 100km is being targeted, as well as DC fast-charging for quick top-ups at public charging stations.

As previously reported, Australian-delivered examples of the Volkswagen Tayron are planned to be built in Wolfsburg, Germany – not Mexico or China like left-hand-drive versions of the SUV for other markets.

The Volkswagen Tayron is expected to arrive in Australia in 2025 – or later – with local specifications due to be revealed closer to its launch.
