So, VW conveyor Tayron almost fully retained the design of its forerunner: left and a couple of spoilers on the aft, and the “x’s” in lights. And it turned out that the SUV has a body kit R-Line, although looking similar to the concept of such signboards was not. And only with this kit and will be available “coupe”, simpler versions is not provided.
