Volkswagen has just pulled the wraps off the 2021 Teramont for the Russian market, where it will go on sale this spring.
Visually, it looks identical to the Atlas sold in America, sporting the same front and rear bumpers, air intakes, exhaust trim and so on, with the only exception being that it displays the ‘Teramont’ lettering in the middle of the tailgate instead of ‘Atlas’.
The cockpit is also the same and includes all the amenities expected from a large SUV, from the infotainment system with smartphone integration, to the digital instrument cluster, multi-zone automatic climate control, optional leather upholstery, sunroof etc., joined by the generous storage spaces and very decent room for backseat occupants.
The Teramont sold in Russia is offered in four trim levels. The entry-level Respect comes with an 8-inch touchscreen display, wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, 3-zone A/C, heated front seats, electric tailgate, keyless entry, adaptive cruise control and several safety features.
The Status adds body-colored bumpers, ventilated front seats with electric adjustment for the driver, leather upholstery, adaptive headlights and park assist. The Exclusive brings larger 20-inch wheels and additional safety gear, while the R-Line features the exclusive R-Line exterior and interior styling package, Nappa leather upholstery and others.
The Teramont is available with two petrol engines, a 217 HP (220 PS / 162 kW) 2.0-liter TSI and a 245 HP (249 PS / 183 kW) VR6, both mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and 4Motion all-wheel drive.
