VW Cross Passat Variant from 2012? image

After launching the CrossGolf, CrossPolo and the CrossTouran, the Germans from Volkswagen are considering launching a fourth Cross model that could be based on the actual generation Passat – so a Vw Cross Passat.

As we all expect, the new vehicle will benefit from VW”s traditional 4Motion all-wheel drive system, higher ground clearance, sturdy plastic covers on the wheel wells, underbody protection as well as front and rear and some of the engines which are going to be available include the 2.0 TFSI gasoline unit that generates 207 hp and the 2.0-liter TDI engine that produces 167 hp (170 PS / 125 kW).

Not most is known about this car, but, according to the French publication L’Automobile Magazine the CrossPassat should arrive in 2012. Most probably will start at 30,000 euros in Europe. No words yet about an US- spec version.
