VW squeezes SUVs in all of the gaps

VW, a complete family of SUVs built with models in all classes. 2016 makes the Polo SUV mobilize against Opel Mokka, Peugeot 2008 Nissan Juke.

Let’s start quite small: In South America builds VW from 2015 to Taigun based on the up. If the car to Germany? This is not planned, but when customers claim the small crossover loud enough, then VW could quickly deliver – but without all-wheel drive assistance systems or direct-shift gearbox. All this and much more is given notice of the 2016 Polo SUV, which is to get an independent and distinctive model name, not starting with the letter T.The basic facts: Prices from just 20,000 euros, available only as a four-door, first appearance as a concept car probably already in March at the Geneva Motor Show. Seat and Skoda would like to jump on the crossover train – the promise of significantly higher quantities and corresponding cost benefits. Audi, too, was originally interested in the new Polo platform, but the SUV Q1 is currently based on the architecture of the more expensive Audi A3 – like its big Q3. The understand, who wants.

The new Polo SUV is based both inside and outside the Tiguan. This gives the small car segment, the new infotainment devices with even better smartphone connectivity and many additional assistance systems. The cockpit acts in the small SUV adult and higher quality than the normal Polo, the equipment list is a good third longer, new features such as the City Emergency Braking and Adaptive Cruise Control improve security. In addition to the three equipment packages Trendline, Comfortline and Highline, there could be the cute SUV as sporty R model with the 220 hp two-liter engine – in response to the Juke Nismo RS (200 hp) and the Mini Countryman John Cooper Works ( 218 hp).

The gap between the E-Up and E-Golf/Golf plug-in hybrid will remain until further. In other words, VW has no plans to alternate drives for the new Polo and the Polo SUV. Instead, downsizing is announced. This affects the capacity and the number of cylinders. New in the Polo range is a supercharged one-liter three-cylinder with 110 PS/175 Newton meters. In rank the 1.4 TSI with 150 PS/250 Newton meters and the 1.8 TSI with 185 PS/280 Newton meters. The diesel range from 1.4-liter three-cylinder with 90 PS/230 Newton meters and 105 Newton meters PS/250 to the 2.0 TDI with 150 PS/340 Newton meters and 184 PS/380 Newton meters. Of course, almost all machines can be combined for an additional charge with the nimble seven-speed direct shift gearbox. Improve available on request “BlueMotion Technology” blocks (low-resistance tires, longer gears and the optimized aerodynamics), although the efficiency, but the most economical 75 hp diesel (82 g CO2/km) is not provided for the Polo SUV.
