The Volkswagen Tayron will Replace the Current Seven-Seat Tiguan

The seven-seat Volkswagen Tiguan will be replaced by the Tayron starting in 2025.

  • This new model was revealed in legal documents filed in China.

  • The Tayron will feature mild-hybrid powertrains.

  • Versions of the Tayron sold in North America will be Built in Mexico.

Regulatory documents filed by Volkswagen in China reveal that the upcoming Tayron SUV will replace the current Tiguan seven-seater on various world markets, including North America.

Indeed, this new three-row SUV will be sold around the world starting in 2025, with the name Tayron in Europe and Tiguan L Pro in China. The name used for North America will be announced closer to this model’s introduction.

The documents show that this model will be powered by a range of 48-volt mild-hybrid four-cylinder powertrains making either 184 horsepower or 217 horsepower in their Chinese market guise.

The use of this technology is reportedly made possible by the Tayron’s use of the new MQB-EVO platform which is already found under the new European Passat and regular-length Tiguan.

Speaking of powertrains, plug-in hybrid versions of the upcoming SUV are planned, but it is still too early to know if they will make it to our market, or if they will remain exclusive to Europe and Asia.

While the Tayron will feature the same wheelbase as the current three-row Tiguan, it will be longer, lower and wider overall than its predecessor.

Unsurprisingly since it is replacing the long-wheelbase Tiguan, the Volkswagen Tayron will look almost identical to the new-generation Tiguan unveiled in Europe back in September, except for its elongated profile.

At the moment, we still don’t know when exactly this 2025 model will make its official debut in North America, nor do we know how it will be priced, but the automaker has confirmed the Tayron will be manufactured in Germany, China, and Mexico, where the vehicles destined for the United States and Canada will come from.

Expect more details about the North American variant of this new SUV in the coming months.
