The model developed in Brazil, the conveyor in this country, the compact SUV will be in may 2020. The crossover will be sold in Europe.
At the end of last month on the social network Twitter published a picture of a car: it was reported that the sketch was created by the head of the design Studio of Volkswagen in South America josé Carlos Pavone. It was assumed that thus, the brand hinted at the appearance in the line of the new cross. A few days later the group announced plans to release a compact SUV with kupeobrazny body. Then appeared the first official sketches of new items. Now the prototype of the car in camouflage caught in Brazil during road tests.
The future compact SUV published on the website Carro. Photographer caught a prototype of the cross in Sao Paulo. Despite the camouflage, some details you can see: the car in the photo the body is in the form of a coupe, the large spoiler on the boot door, plastic kit on the perimeter, roof rails.
Information on technical specifications yet. According to preliminary data, the future SUV based on the platform MQB A0. This “truck” is the basis of Evrohata VW Polo latest generation of the SUV T-Cross and the Brazilian sedan Virtus (which, in turn, is a harbinger of our next four-door Polo). It is expected that the cross-coupe will share the engine range with the hatchback. In Brazil, for example, the Polo is offered with “atmospherically” 1.0 MPI (75 HP on petrol and 84 HP with ethanol) and 1.6 MSI (110 or 117 HP, respectively) as well as liter “Turbotronic” TSI (116 or 128 HP). To them in the pair are five-speed manual transmission or six-speed “automatic”. Probably four-wheel-drive versions of the new kupeobrazny SUV VW will not.
In Volkswagen crossover is what is called the New Urban Coupe. The Germans had already registered the name T-Sport (probably exactly for this model). New product fully developed by the Brazilian subsidiary of the group. Here, in Sao Bernardo do Campo (state of são Paulo), will establish its production. It is assumed that the release starts in may 2020, the “coupe” will arrive in the second half of next year.
Apparently, initially the car was intended for developing countries (markets, South America, Asia and Africa), but SUV appreciated the leadership of Volkswagen, so the model decided to sell including in Europe. For the Old world kupeobrazny crossover utility vehicle will be produced in Spain, sales will likely begin in 2021. While it is unknown where the “coupe” will be supplied to other markets. It is possible that later production of cross will establish somewhere else.
A direct competitor kupeobrazny VW SUV could be a Renault Arkana, but in Europe kupeobrazny SUV of the French brand will not appear (even under the budget brand Dacia), Brazilian lasso is also not yet announced.
In the model lineup Volkswagen kupeobrazny crossover, which in the future will be named T-Sport, will be on the step below the T-Cross. Note “T-Cross” sell including in China: is it different from European and South American versions of headlights, foglights, rear bumper and grille. Last month it became known that China will sell a model with a “Euro-design”, but under a different name – Tacqua.
