an SUV with a VR6 engine

Marketed in China, the Volkswagen Talagon is a brand new model: a 7-seater SUV which can be fitted with a V6 TSI engine… which is none other than a VR6!

Recently unveiled in the Middle Kingdom, the Volkswagen Talagon is a model unknown in our regions, and for good reason: it should not be marketed in Europe, but is part of the German group’s “offensive SUV in China” program. Based on the MQB Evo platform found on the Golf or the Audi A3, the Talagon is 5.15 meters long and nearly 2 meters wide: it is the largest of all SUVs in the Volkswagen range.

Volkswagen Talagon (2021): a 300-horsepower VR6

If there are up to seven seats on board, as well as a modern interior in line with the brand’s latest productions, with a large touch screen, it is under the hood that the most interesting is hidden. If you can opt for two versions of the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder TSI with 185 horsepower (bearing the badge “330 TSI”) and 220 horsepower (referred to as “380 TSI”), the third possible choice is called “530 V6”

: it is quite simply an updated version of the famous VR6.

If it has disappeared from our European roads due to constraints in terms of CO emissions2, the VR6 engine quietly continues his career in other regions of the world less concerned with pollution, such as China. Responding to the code name “E390 DPKA”, this six-cylinder features an original Mitsubishi turbo, and develops no less than 300 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, all sent to four wheel drive via a double clutch gearbox Seven-speed DSG.
