Vw planning not one, but several new crossovers

Article by Christian A., on September 10, 2012

With the belief that the relationship with Suzuki can’t be saved anymore, Volkswagen is proceeding with plans to develop several models on its own. The two companies are currently in the process of breaking up. We’d have to wait a few more years before we could expect a sub-compact Polo crossover to officially debut.

With the rumors circulating, fans are becoming excited about the crossovers and other models that Volkswagen is planning. It was rumored that the Polo crossover will be a true all-terrain vehicle and it will have all-wheel drive, a dual-clutch transmission, all-season tires, skid plates, and heavy-duty suspension.

Furthermore, the new Polo crossover will be lighter by about 176 lbs compared to the current five-door hatchback model. There are six different powertrains available: gas, diesel, hybrid, plug-in hybrid, electric, and ethanol. Sources inside Volkswagen said that the four different 1.4-liter TSI engines range from 105-hp to 150-hp. Its diesel options include a 1.4-liter TDI three-cylinder and a couple of 2.0-liters with 115-hp and 150-hp.

Volkswagen is also currently developing the Up! Alltrack and a bigger Golf Variant Alltrack. The Up! Alltrack model will be offered with a more spacious cabin, bigger wheels, and a more striking exterior, while the Golf Variant Alltrack will get 4Motion all-wheel drive. If these models become successful, Volkswagen may soon release a Touran Alltrack MPV in early 2015.
