Vw considering new crossover to take on the Subaru Outback in the U.S.

Article by Christian A., on May 21, 2012

In order to boost its sales in the United States even more, it appears that Volkswagen wants to introduce a crossover version of the next-generation Jetta SportWagen. Inspired by the recently introduced Passat Alltrack, the new vehicle will take on popular cars such as the Subaru Outback and will offer uniquely styled bumpers and graphics as well as new wheel-arch cladding and new interior trims.

Vw already tested the American public with the Passat Alltrack Concept at the 2012 New York Auto Show. According to Automotive News, the new car will get the name Jetta Alltrack for the United States, while in Europe might be sold as the Golf Alltrack. Still, do not expect to be a real crossover, as the vehicle will be offered as standard with front-wheel drive, while the all-wheel drive will be offered as an option.

Apparently, the new Jetta Alltrack will be introduced as the next-generation Tiguan, due in 2014, will be bigger and will offer an optional third row of seats. Mexico will be the place where the new crossover will be assembled, alongside with the upcoming Jetta sedan and SportWagen but also with the upcoming four-door-style coupe based on the same Jetta. Regarding the engines, we will see direct-injection gasoline and diesel powerplants.
