Volkswagen Up!-based SUV going to Sao Paulo Motor Show image

The German based automaker Volkswagen is planning to develop a crossover on the Up! and the model is expected to make its public debut at the 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show this year.

After some rumors appeared earlier today which said that Volkswagen is planning to develop a Polo based crossover which will battle models like the Nissan Juke, the Ford EcoSport, the MINI Countryman, the Peugeot 2008 or the Renault Clio based SUV, another rumor is telling us that the company will produce an Up! based crossover. The new model will be officially presented to the public at the end of this month during the 2012 Sao Paulo Motor Show.

Volkswagen didn’t announce anything official on this subject for the moment but if Volkswagen will produce the Up! based SUV, Skoda is expected to develop a similar model based on the Citigo and Seat on the Mii. Besides the Polo based SUV and the Up! based SUV, Volkswagen is also planning to develop an SUV based on the US-market Passat, and this is expected to be unveiled at the Detroit Motor Show early next year. Additional details on these models are limited for the moment.
