ID.6 X and ID.6 CROZZ: roomy SUVs for the digital era
Volkswagen’s e-offensive takes another step forward with the fully-electric ID.6 – made exclusively for China, and the brand’s flagship SUV for the ID. Built on the MEB platform, the roomy ID.6 has a long wheelbase of 2,965 mm and comes with a flexible 6- or 7-seater layout. The powerful, aerodynamic and modern exterior is matched with illuminated front and rear logos that ensure the ID.6 stands out on the road.
Intuitively user-friendly, the human-machine interface (HMI) creates a more relaxed drive thanks to state-of-the-art technologies, such as the augmented reality head-up display (AR HUD), and Volkswagen’s ID. Equipped with IQ.DRIVE, including the latest generation Travel Assist, the ID.6 offers a safe drive and is tested to Volkswagen’s highest standards.
The Teramont family: new designs and fully connected
Both models feature Volkswagen’s new electronics architecture, which allows for more touch control functions, including for the interior lighting and rear air-conditioning, while a safer driver is provided by the latest advanced driving assist systems, such as Travel Assist. The full-size 7-seater all-new Teramont has a new front and rear bumper, with new exterior lighting for a more distinctive, powerful effect. Its brother, the all-new Teramont X, is now sportier than ever, being equipped with special R-Line styling, such as the special new front with embedded high-gloss black trim, lower spoiler and special rear bumper. Being 4,917 mm long, 1,989 mm wide and 1,719 mm high, the Teramont X has a 2,980 mm wheelbase.
The Golf GTI: the sporty hot hatch is going digital
The eighth generation of the iconic hot hatch – the all-new Golf GTI – from FAW-Volkswagen is now fully-digital and features an even more sporty design. The new exclusive GTI design features matrix LED headlights with follow-up steering and dynamic light control, an exclusive GTI central control panel, an engine start button with pulsing red backlight, a multi-functional leather racing steering wheel, sports suspension, large-sized wheels and more. The all-new Golf GTI is equipped with Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) featuring driving mode selection, plus a progressive electric power steering system for superior handling.
The Talagon: large-sized all-rounder SUV
FAW-Volkswagen’s brand-new Talagon is the latest result of Volkswagen’s SUV offensive in China and opens up a new segment, being the perfect fusion of an SUV and MPV. The interior features the latest generation Innovision Cockpit and has a free-floating design to add to the spacious feeling. With different powertrains, the top of the range model is equipped with a 2.5-litre V6 engine, with the latest DQ501 gearbox and 4MOTION, making the Talagon ideal for both city and off-road driving.
