    Spying: Volkswagen's Three-Row Crossover Caught Uncovered


    • Meet Volkswagen's upcoming three-row crossover

    We know a fair amount of Volkswagen's upcoming three-row crossover,

    • It will be built in Chattanooga, TN
    • Engines will include a 3.6L V6, 2.0L Turbo-four, and Hybrid. (No diesel)
    • Using the MQB platform
    • Possibly named Teramont 

    But we don't know much about how it looks. Yes, we have seen spy shots that tell us it will possibly look like the CrossBlue concept from a few years back. That doesn't mean there are still some surprises in store. We now have the full picture thanks to some leaked shots.

    Chinese outlet Auto Sina got their hands on photos showing Volkswagen's new crossover in an engineering garage. The production model matches up with the CrossBlue in terms of overall design. The front end features a large grille, LED headlights, and a chunky front bumper. The interior features a similar center stack design found in other Volkswagen models. 

    The crossover features a V6 badge, which most likely hints at a 3.6L V6.

    That is a nice looking CUV, reminds me of the Ford Flex. 

    Any idea what those funky white bar things could be on the back of the front seats?

    For everyone, I have put up a picture with what @dfelt is referring to. I think those are mounting points for a rear entertainment system.

    I'm left wondering why there are seat controls THERE... upper inboard side of the seatback?  Only person who can reach it is your shotgun rider.

    @ocnblu Maybe it is so those in the back can play pranks on those riding in the front. :P

    And just like Ford did with the Edge and Flex, it appears that Volkswagen also had the help of Gilette - they just their Turbo 2 razor for the grille design.

      As we have been reporting since this summer, Skoda is putting serious consideration into entering the U.S. market. Currently, a decision is expected sometime next year. But ask their parent company, Volkswagen what they think of the idea of Skoda entering the U.S. and they would likely say something to the effect of this,
      “We may be crazy, but we’re not mad. Entering this huge market with an unknown brand, a model range focused on Europe, and a non-existent dealer network is pure suicide. Furthermore, the last thing Volkswagen of America needs now is in-house cannibalization,” said an unnamed Volkswagen board member to Automobile Magazine.
      Without having any support from the parent company, Skoda's plan of entering the U.S. seems dead in the water. Whether this happens or not remains to be seen.
      There is one other interesting tidbit from Automobile Magazine. Reportedly, Volkswagen was considering replacing certain models in U.S. with slightly restyled Skoda vehicles badged as VWs. This idea was scrapped however which is a shame since we could see the likes of the Superb being an excellent replacement for the current Passat as an example.

      Whenever a new set of spy shots come out, the photographer tends to have an idea of the vehicle in question. But that isn't the case with this set of spy shots.
      The vehicle in question is a Chevrolet Crossover that was driving nearby General Motors' headquarters. But no one can seem to agree if this is the next-generation Traverse or the rumored crossover that would sit between the Equinox and Traverse. Motor1 believes it's latter since it is about the same size and shape as the downsized GMC Acadia. This new model could be wearing the Blazer nameplate.
      No matter which model this turns out to be, we can be sure the front end will feature a similar design to the Equinox - large split grille and angular headlights. The taillights are long and horizontal, again taking a cue from the Equinox.
      This new model will use the C1XX platform that currently underpins the Cadillac XT5 and GMC Acadia. Power is expected to come from an updated 3.6L V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic.
