Volkswagen's has been testing a new 7-seater SUV for a while now in China. Now, the upcoming 7-seater has been spotted undisguised and a name for the SUV is also making the rounds.
The new SUV is expected to carry the name Teramont, a name that reports suggest was picked by Volkswagen's North American division. The new SUV will most likely make its debut at the 2016 LA Motor Show in November.
The spy pics which were first published by Chinese website Autohome, show off what appears to be the final design of the Teramont.
The new Teramont retains most of the design cues from the CrossBlue Concept seen at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show. The headlamps look more chunky and are split by a chrome strip that comes in from the grille.
At the rear, the taillamps are connected by another chrome strip which runs from one side of the car to the other.
The interiors of the car are carried over from the CrossBlue. Housed in the centre console is a display (probably a touchscreen) and the dash features two strips of chrome. The automatic gearbox along with the three-spoke steering wheel (with what look like controls for calls and volume) are also visible.
The car seen in the images has a V6 engine under the hood. This will most probably be the 3.6-litre petrol V6 that VW currently uses in the Touareg. The entry level Teramont is expected to sport a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine.
