The firm has shared some details and images of the SUV that will replace the hatchback Polo.
For official pictures VW Nivus visible in its entirety. However, the future novelty is fully covered with the brand’s signature camouflage: for intermediate stages of the Premier Volkswagen it has become a tradition.
However, clearly that the SUV, made in the style of cross coupe, got a more seamless and slick silhouette than, say, VW Atlas Cross Sport. Optics SUV full led, and the front is clearly visible as a bold grille and design elements are definitely borrowed from the VW Golf.
The basis of the VW Nivus went brand’s modular MQB architecture, the power unit while there is only one. For a “Nivus” prepared liter the “turbotron” returns 130 HP mated to six-speed automatic. Previously mentioned, and the version with manual transmission and slightly less powerful engine, but its fate is still in question. Drive – only the front.
Another curious detail is the Luggage capacity. The new crossover it is noticeably exceeds the performance of the VW Polo, which Nivus is replaced: 415 HP versus 285 HP
The first country where will be organized the production of the crossover, will be Brazil (in fact, forces of the local unit of VW and it is developed): the local market Nivus will be released in the summer. A little later, the cross-coupe will appear in other Latin American countries, but in 2021-Volkswagen plans to establish an Assembly of “Nivus” in Europe – though perhaps under a different name.
