While initial rumors talked about a the automaker’s teasing campaign mentions the “B-SUV” name.
We’re a little perplexed to why VW would change its naming scheme to such a least inspiring name, but we’re hoping this is just their way of keeping the real name a secret while the teaser campaign is out and about. The new B-SUV appears to be VW’s intention to direct families to the brand, though we won’t be seeing the model until November during the Los Angeles Auto Show. Now a new promotional feature for the all-new midsize crossover is already teasing some of the specifications, such as the SUV’s length and powertrain ratings.
The promo video shows it completely covered in camouflage but we find it’s five meters, four centimeters (198.4 inches) long – which is more than rivals on the market such as the Honda Pilot (194.5 inches) and Toyota Highlander (191.1 inches). The video voiceover also lets us know the seven-seater will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine going for 38 horsepower (177 kilowatts) as the base option, while affluent families can opt for the 3.6-liter V6 that has 280 hp (208 kW). We already know for sure the model will be produced at VW’s factory in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
