It has carried on the evolutionary styling that debuted last year. And although traditional sedans like the Passat and Jetta may be more popular in the U.S, the Golf has proven once again that it’s the VW’s bread and butter for global markets. The Golf has managed to become of the best-selling Volkswagen brand in the forty years or so it has been on the world stage.

Things remain unaltered beneath its hood, with the 1.8L turbocharged engine rated at 170 hp and 199 lbs. ft. of torque being the new base engine. It is energetic and feels more stable on the road thanks to the myriad of changes its suspension has had.

The 2020 Volkswagen Golf’s standing has further been boosted in its category. But even so, it’s always wise to check what its competition offers. Some of them include the fun-to-drive 2020 Mazda 3. It also offers plenty of impressive standard features and laudable fuel economy ratings but comes short on interior space. The 2020 Kia Forte SX might be more expensive, but it offers lots of value.

Finally, you can check out the 2020 Ford Focus. It offers top-drawer interior materials, and a refined driving experience.

A lot of Questions Posed about the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont

Quite recently we have seen a lot of emerging information about the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont vehicle. This is actually a surprising piece of news as VW has recently showed us a CrossBlue concept. Everyone thought this model would go into production by now. But the last thing they stated was that they are dropping the project for now. They also announced that they are continuing with another model starting with T, the Teramont.

The camera first spotted test mule of the 2019 Teramont  in China. It was the first case which stated that the CrossBlue project is going to be on hold for now.

The pictures have showed us a lot of details of the VW Teramont. Nevertheless, at the same time they do not show us a lot. It’s because they keep the main parts covered. One of the main things which we spotted was a V6 badge on the side. But the company still has not  disclosed which V6 engine we are talking about.

Possible Release Date

As things are turning out now, the vehicle is getting its preparations for its international showcasing in Los Angeles. So we are probably going to see the SUV fully for the first time in November. This also implies that Teramont is a 2019 vehicle which could start its sales by 2018. The 2019 Volkswagen Teramont is going to make its appearance in America as well. However the timing is still not clear.

For now we are giving you all the current information that we have on the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont. Hopefully we get to see much more by the time the vehicle shows up for the public.

The Exterior of the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont Based on the Spy Photos

The only information that we have about the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont is based mainly on the spy photos of the car. As we are able to discern, the car will take some pieces from the CrossBlue concept. That way it won’t let the designed vehicle go to waste.

This is pretty noticeable within the grille area. It gives the car a refined appearance. The body color is dark. But the added satin chrome pieces are a great juxtaposition to it. In addition, it makes things a bit clearer. The hood is long, so it does not really help us to determine which engine they could fit there. Because there are a number of them that they can actually place.

The rear end has some elements from other already recognizable Volkswagen products. Such as the tailgates which they directly transferred from the Tiguan car. There is an accent bar between the taillights and the fascia. We were also able to see the double exhaust tips and the V6 badge is also in the back.

What does the Interior Bring?

We are actually expecting that the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont uses a lot of parts from the CrossBlue concept. We are probably going to see a low instrument cluster which offers a bigger infotainment screen.

The model will also add wood trims which are going to be seen on the dash and the door panels as well. The shifter will probably change compared to the concept version as that one seemed to out of the ordinary to keep as a production version. The digital cluster which the concept had could be transfered here and it would benefit the vehicle and provide a clearer picture on the dash.

We are also expecting to get more comfort for the interior of the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont. The seats, both the front and the back ones, will add different and with new materials. According to some expectations, they are going to expand the legroom, particularly to the second row passengers.

It is also already confirmed that this car is not going to feature a third row of seats, so if you were hoping to expand the number of passengers unfortunately two rows is what we are getting.

Which V6 Engine are we going to See?

As the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont appeared with a V6 badge on its back side, it is safe to say that a V6 engine is going to be placed under the hood. But the questions remains which one, as this was not indicated or announced in any sort of a way. Volkswagen has used a number of V6s and is using some of them now in their current cars.

There are a number of candidates that might be suitable for the Teramont. One of them is the 3.6-liter FSI V-6 which is used in the Touareg and which makes 280 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Another option would be a supercharged 3.0-liters V-6 engine that is found under the hood of the Audi Q7.

Within this model it is capable of making 333 hp and 325 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, both engines could be matted to an 8-speed automatic transmission and can work in an AWD system with them as well. So both options are on the table and our assessment is that one of these two makes it inside.


If we look at the 2019 Volkswagen Teramont in terms of luxury it provides, we can place it just above the Touareg model. The current Touareg costs $49,705 as a base MSRP price. So Volkswagen may offer the Teramont for $52,000 as a starting price.

Competition and Alternatives

If Volkswagen is truly thinking to make a 2019 Volkswagen Teramont they are going to be arriving in an already prepared segment which offers SUV vehicles left and right. Other alternatives do exist and the Mazda CX-9 and Audi Q7 are just some of them which already exist in the market.
