The new Volkswagen Teramont
By Shereen Shabnam
The Volkswagen Teramont never compromises on space, quality, safety, and connectivity and that is the first thing we love about this popular seven-seater SUV which now features an updated interior and exterior.
The 2021 Volkswagen Teramont is Volkswagen Middle East’s boldest and most robust vehicle and it has received a facelift for an all-new look. The Teramont is popular in the region for its functionality, safety, and connectivity.
We often see families struggling to fit in kids, maids, strollers and in this region, generally families tend to be large. The Teramont is perfect for families’ standard requirements and the space and comfort element has made it one of the best family SUVs in the region and internationally.
The facelifted Teramont also has a newly modified exterior. The new exterior includes a completely facelifted front grille fitted with the new Volkswagen logo. The headlight and taillight design has been revamped and upgraded to full-LED lights, in addition to an updated front and rear bumper. The Teramont also has a new lower design front and diffusor with a chrome silver lip.
Inside the seven-seater SUV interior, we liked the new next-gen multifunction steering wheel which includes silver brushed metal décor or Methatis wood inserts, in addition to the eight-inch touch adaptable Infotainment system and rear-view cameras. The cabin allows everyone to enjoy the view with a panoramic sunroof that spans the length of almost all three rows.
Other features include a 10’ digital cockpit, 12 speaker Fender sound system and wireless phone charging is also available. For the Highline trim, the digital instrument cluster is standard. The Teramont comes with up to four USB ports, including two charging points in the rear. And it has a wireless charger for extra convenience.
The Teramont comes in seven colours, three of them being new; Pyrite Silver Metallic, Nephrite Green Metallic, and Aurora Red Chroma. The redesigned vehicle comes in three trims for this region – Trendline (2.0L or 3.6L), Comfortline 3.6L, and the Highline 3.6L. It also includes optional ‘R-Line’ Packages available for the Comfortline and Highline.
Our drive experience of this family-friendly SUV was an absolute delight as the renowned Volkswagen DNA ensured we turned heads with the outstanding design. We also enjoyed the latest technology, connectivity and were impressed with the safety features. We found the overhead camera, parking sensors, Blind Spot Monitor and the Rear Traffic Alert useful.
Overall, a sensible buy for big families who prefer a car that meets all their needs but looks good on the road.
