Brazilian designer renders 2018 VW Polo Alltrack to suit the outdoor lifestyle

Volkswagen strong sellers like the Golf and the Passat have their Alltrack versions, which offer a sportier driving experience with an all-terrain capability and rugged looks. But another VW strong seller, the Polo supermini, doesn’t have an Alltrack version. Nonetheless, a Brazilian automotive designer is providing Polo fans an idea of how an Alltrack version of the supermini might look like.

Essentially, VW employs the Alltrack moniker to identify derivative models that cater to urban customers with active lifestyles. These customers are people who spend the weekdays in the city, and the weekend off the road. This is why all of VW’s Alltrack models are fitted with an all-wheel drive system. VW distinguishes the Alltrack versions from their base vehicles by making them appear rugged.

Here comes a detailed rendering of the VW Polo Alltrack, as created by Kleber Silva of Sao Paulo, Brazil. This isn't the first time an Alltrack version of the Polo has been rendered visually, but Silva’s work is certainly worth considering.

Volkswagen continues to entertain plans to produce a crossover version of the future Jetta SportWagen to extend the Jetta lineup. This model would be quite similar to the Alltrack concept, which was presented recently. Autoweek, a sister publication of Automotive News, spoke to a senior Volkswagen executive who said that there is “definite sales potential” for a new lifestyle-targeted Jetta model to enter North America and other global markets.

He said that the new model may be based on the one that succeeds the current model. He is referring to a Subaru Outback fighter with an increased ride height, unique bumpers and light graphics, with extra wheel-arch cladding and specialized interior trims.

So that development costs wouldn’t go out of control, the same steel body and mechanical package are used by the wagon and the crossover. Volkswagen conceived the crossover to be equipped with either the standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.

With the Bosch Driver Drowsiness Detection system, the early signs of fatigue will be detected while driving before a critical situation happens. Microsleep and fatigue at the steering wheel are two of the frequent causes of serious accidents. The system will monitor steering movements and advise the one behind the wheel to take a break.

This vital information is communicated by the steering angle sensor or by the electric power steering system of the vehicle. The steering angle sensor is part of the vehicle's ESP anti-skid system. This means that it would be cost-effective to fit the feature, which aids in further boosting road safety.

The Bosch Driver Drowsiness Detection is useable in light commercial vehicles and in passenger cars. It can also be combined with a range of control units in automobiles. In 2010, it was launched in the new Volkswagen Passat as a standard feature. The new Passat Alltrack is the latest vehicle to be fitted with the system.

For 40 years, more than 15 million Passat automobiles have been manufactured. With its practical and versatile qualities, the success of the worldwide bestseller can be attributed to the company's wide and diverse range of products. Now, Volkswagen is expanding the model lineup with the addition of Passat Alltrack, which is offered in an estate vehicle configuration.

This new version closes the gap between the conventional Passat Estate and SUVs like the Tiguan. The new model is meant for car owners who use their vehicle for towing or for light off-road situations, but also want a sporty, versatile and spacious passenger vehicle with rugged qualities.

When compared with the Passat Estate, the new vehicle is defined by new bumpers in SUV style with wheel well and side sill flares.
