Doha, Qatar — Volkswagen Middle East unveiled the new 2024 Teramont at the Geneva International Motor Show – Qatar today. The refreshed seven-seater offers enhanced technology, upgraded interior designs and materials, and a livelier powertrain.
“Since its launch in the Middle East just five years ago, the Teramont has quickly gained popularity and is now Volkswagen Middle East’s best-selling vehicle. In 2018, we redefined the segment with the launch of the Teramont, bringing technology, style, and safety features to large family SUVs. With the new Teramont, we further build on this, offering even more technology, more premium quality materials, enhanced performance and better efficiency to our customers across the region. In true VW fashion, many of these features in the Teramont come as standard, regardless of which trim line a customer buys,” said Matthias Ziegler, Managing Director, Volkswagen Middle East.
While the refreshed Teramont maintains the same underpinnings of the successful outgoing model, the spacious interior receives a major upgrade for the 2024 model year. Premium materials are adopted throughout, including a leatherette-trimmed soft-touch dash and center console. Front-row door trim and décor flow seamlessly into the dash panel, creating an upscale cockpit; the door treatment is also mirrored in the second row. Available ambient lighting with 30 color choices pairs with innovative backlit dash décor featuring the model name to elevate the new design. Top-of-range models feature quilted leather seats with a diamond pattern.
Comfort features get a boost as well. A heated steering wheel with shift paddles, ventilated front seats and a height-adjustable passenger seat are now standard fare, along with Climatronic® automatic climate control and Voice Control. The center console is redesigned with a storage cubby underneath.
Enhanced technology in the refreshed Teramont offers a more connected experience. A 12-inch floating infotainment display is an elegant focal point in the redesigned cockpit, and drivers of every trim level benefit from the 10.25-inch fully configurable Volkswagen Digital Cockpit Pro. Connecting devices is easier than ever with standard wireless App-Connect*, wireless charging, and six USB-C ports (eight available) with 45-watt fast charging.
IQ.DRIVE® driver assistance technology, featuring hands-on semi-automatic capability is available on the Comfortline & R-Line Models. On the highway, IQ.DRIVE features lane centering and a capacitive steering wheel to make driving easier. Around town, IQ.DRIVE helps alert you to surprise obstacles in front of you, and keeps an eye around you to help make driving safer. A head-up display and predictive Adaptive Cruise Control are also available.
Outside, model year 2024 brings a new front-end design with a wide chrome four-bar grille which is framed by LED headlights with the newly standard Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). On all trims, the Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) wrap around the headlights and continue into an illuminated lightbar giving the vehicle an unmistakable premium look. A new front fascia with integrated air intakes completes the front-end treatment.
At the rear a larger spoiler lengthens the overall roofline of the vehicle giving them a sleeker side profile. The rear mirrors the front lighting signature in the rear with an illuminated lightbar sitting between the LED taillights.
All trims get new wheel designs, ranging from 18 to 20 inches with machined alloy and black finishes available. R-line® trims up the ante with a gloss-black grille, 21-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and signature R-line badging.
For 2024, the Teramont will be powered solely by a four-cylinder turbocharged and direct-injection TSI® engine with 270 horsepower and 370NM of torque. The new engine provides similar power to the outgoing VR6, a bump in torque—which is available over a broader rev range, improving drivability and acceleration—and is anticipated to provide improved fuel economy. An eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard; Volkswagen’s 4Motion all-wheel-drive system is available across the model lineup.
Further details, specifications, and pricing will be announced along with the ability for customers to pre-book their Teramont in the coming weeks.
