Underpinned by the VW Group’s versatile ‘MQB’ platform, the imposing seven-seater reportedly measures 5152mm from nose to tail. It is 2002mm wide and stands 1795mm tall, giving it similar overall proportions to the Mercedes-Benz GLS, BMW X7, Land Rover Discovery, or Lexus LX570.
According to local Chinese media, the standard variant gets a 2.5-litre V6 powertrain producing “roughly 220kW and 500Nm.” Drive is sent to all four wheels via a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
However, despite potentially widespread demand internationally, it appears unlikely the 2021 Volkswagen Talagon will be sold outside China anytime soon.
A spokesperson for the brand in Australia told CarAdvice: “While we remain very interested in an even larger SUV, the current lack of right-hand-drive options appears to preclude this particular variant from the local market.”
