Volkswagen confirms development of 2 new crossovers image

The German based automaker Volkswagen has recently confirmed its plans to develop two new crossovers, which will be the Polo-based crossover and another one larger than the Tiguan.

After some rumors appeared just last week, which were saying that Volkswagen will produce a new Polo based crossover in order to compete with models like the Nissan Juke, the Opel / Vauxhall Mokka, the Peugeot 2008, the Ford EcoSport or the upcoming Renault Clio based crossover, the German based automaker is stepping forward and officially announcing its plans to put the vehicle into production.

The Polo based crossover will ride on the new MQB platform and it will be launched in 2014. Its styling will be inspired by the Cross Coupe Concept and we are expecting versions with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Besides the Polo based crossover, Volkswagen is also planning to develop another new model, which will be larger than a Tiguan. This vehicle should offer seating for up to seven people and it should appeal to people in the United States who don’t have a minivan. This new model might be based on the U.S. spec Passat and it could cost less than the Touareg. Additional details on these two new models are limited for the moment.
