New Volkswagen SUV to sit beneath Tiguan
Volkswagen has released a teaser image and a few details about a new SUV that it plans to slot into its model range, below the Tiguan.
“We call it internally Volks-SUV – the production car won’t have that name – because it turned from a regional project into a global project,” Juergen Stackmann, the VW brand’s sales chief, said in an interview with Automotive News Europe.
This global crossover will premiere in China in August. Production will begin in 2020 at sites in Russia, Mexico, and Argentina and the Wolfsburg company says that it will aim to sell 400 000 of these a year. The new addition won’t be sold in Europe though because the T-Roc will occupy a similar position in the lineup.
From what we can see from the teaser image, the model will look a lot like the current Tiguan but perhaps with a more boxy look.
