The Volkswagen Viloran people mover has been unveiled at the 2019 Guangzhou motor show.
The Viloran is unlikely to ever come Down Under, and may only be built only in left-hand drive as it is built in China as part of Volkswagen's joint venture with SAIC, owner of the MG brand.
While people movers have never really caught on in Australia, they're still popular many parts of Asia – and an important niche in China, the world's largest car market.
Despite being one of China's most popular automotive brands, this is the first time Volkswagen has sold a full-sized people mover in the Middle Kingdom.
At 5.3 metres long, it will be around 50mm longer than the market-leading Buick. It has crossover-inspired styling and a rounder silhouette with smoother surfacing than its boxier competitors.
The key giveaway that it's a people mover are the twin sliding rear doors. The Viloran seats seven people in a 2-2-3 layout with captain's chairs for the second row.
Reports indicate the Viloran is based on the company's MQB architecture for front- and all-wheel drive vehicles with a transverse engine. It is reportedly powered by a version of the company's 164kW/340Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine.
