New 7-seater Teramont arrives in Middle East

Volkswagen Middle East has welcomed the new Teramont, Volkswagen’s first ever seven-seater to the GCC region. The new SUV presents a new chapter in Volkswagen’s history and allows families to make room for more of life’s eventualities. 

The Teramont presents itself as the “perfect family SUV,” with a functional seven-seat layout, one-step third row entry and exit, and child seats.

The seven-seater builds on the latest Volkswagen design DNA to create a bold new look in the SUV segment and its modern and muscular design retains classic proportions and clean lines. 

Engineered from Volkswagen’s award-winning Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB) architecture, Teramont is 198.3 inches long, 78.3 inches wide and 70 inches high — larger than any other Volkswagen model on sale in the Middle East. 

Andrew Savvas, brand director Volkswagen Middle East, said: “Welcoming the Teramont to our market is a delight, as we are confident this car will be perfect for this location. Size matters, especially for families in this region and this is exactly what we can deliver now. The Teramont expresses true Volkswagen style and quality finish — delivering the distinctive design and craftsmanship we’re known for, now with room for seven. This year we have been busy ramping up our SUV range and having this seven-seater now means we have a complete lineup in place and can offer the perfect car for every type of family.”

Volkswagen Middle East is optimistic that the seven-seater will be well-received across the region, due to its suitability for families’ everyday requirements and the competitive price point against others in the market. 

The company said safety for families is a priority in all Volkswagen vehicles. The SUV’s passive safety features include the three-point seatbelts for all seats, side-curtain head-protection airbags that cover all three rows, and a reinforced safety cage construction. From front to back, all these technologies work together to help keep families safe.

The new Teramont is available in four trim levels — an S with a 2 L engine, and a 3.6 L in S, SE and SEL, starting at 137,100 dirhams ($37,324) including VAT and three-year service or 45,000 kilometers (whichever comes first).
