At the end of June this year in Brazil started selling the new crossover Volkswagen Nivus, who in 2021, will appear at dealers and elsewhere. Market prospects of the novelty can be assessed according to the first results of sales.
So, in the first hours after the announcement of the price crossover booked 1 200 people in this connection, Volkswagen has allocated additional quota of another thousand cars. Most likely, such a demand can be explained with additional bonuses for first time buyers. They include free insurance for a year and subscription to mobile services and the provision of preferential terms when buying a car on credit or installments.
The prices for a novelty start from 890 85 Brazilian reais ($16 000). Crossover top configuration will cost 98 290 R $ or 18 $ 300.
We will remind, the world premiere of Volkswagen Nivus was held in may of this year. Crossover built on the platform MQB-A0, which does not provide the availability of all-wheel drive system. On this same architecture created the actual Polo hatchback and crossover T-Cross.
Under the hood Volkswagen Brazilian Nivus 3 – cylinder 1.0-liter turbo engine TSI, which on petrol produces 116 horsepower and widespread in Brazil, ethanol is 128 horsepower. Manual transmission will not be – only 6-speed automatic transmission.
The cabin crossover is made according to traditional patterns of Volkswagen and the main novelty here was the Play VW media system with 8.0-inch screen, which the company developed specifically for the Brazilian market, given the preferences of the local audience.
It is not excluded that in the future Nivus will get to our country, because Volkswagen has already announced the localization of 3 new models within specinvtehnica.
