The Volkswagen Tharu is a compact crossover SUV, which is produced by the German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen. The vehicle is positioned above the T-Cross, and below the Tiguan Allspace, sharing the position, but not marketed, with the T-Roc or the Tiguan.[1]

Since the end of October 2018, the CUV is available in China.[2] The Tharu is built by SAIC Volkswagen.[3]

Also introduced in October 2018, was the Volkswagen Tayron, which is built by the other joint venture of Volkswagen, FAW-Volkswagen. The Tharu is the first model of Volkswagen to be exported from China. It will also be built in Argentina, Mexico and Russia, by the end of 2020. The car is not currently offered in Europe.[4]


The name of the SUV is named after Tharu people, living in Nepal and Northern India. Already introduced in October 2002, the Volkswagen Touareg is named after the Tuareg people, living in particular in the Sahara.[5] The Taos name sold in the Americas is named after a small town in New Mexico[6] paying tribute to John Muir, who authored a repair book and manual dedicated to past Volkswagen models.[7]


The Tharu is based on the MQB Platform, such as the SEAT Ateca, that has been built since March 2016, and the Škoda Karoq, presented in May 2017. The Tharu is manufactured in its own factory in China.[3] Optically, the Tharu resembles the SEAT Ateca, and the Volkswagen Atlas.[4][1]

Volkswagen cooperated for the production of the vehicle, with the headphone manufacturer Beats Electronics, so that the Beats audio system comes standard on the Tharu. Also, on Pillar B, the logo of the headphone manufacturer can be seen.[3] The base model of the Tharu has a torsion axis, the higher versions have a multi link suspension.[5]
