VW News: Spying: Volkswagen's Three-Row SUV Heads Into the Rockies

3 posts in this topic

We've been hearing about Volkswagen's three-row crossover for the U.S. for the past few years. Spy shots have been coming out about this vehicle, but there wasn't much you could tell about them. The only thing you could was the test mules having a similar shape to the CrossBlue concept from 2013. But a new set of spy shots give us an idea of what the production model will look like.

 

The front end seems to be lining up with the upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan with a larger grille and slim headlights. AutoGuide says the design of the back is similar to the Passat, although we can't see that.

 

Expect a V6 along with a 2.0L turbo-four. Front-wheel drive will come standard and Volkswagen's 4Motion all-wheel be an option. There is talk about a possible hybrid powertrain for this model.

 

The three-row crossover could either debut at the LA or Detroit Auto Show.

It looks like as if the last gen Honda Pilot and some kind of Lincoln wing grille was slapped on the front, with the bi-secting part of the hood removed.

 

It's just looking rather lame, even under camo.

 

VW seriously needs to shake up their designs. Stale as ever on anything that isn't a comfort coupe, or European Passat or Golf GTi/Golf R.

 

Now I know I said continuity may not be such a bad thing, but i don't there has been serious design evolution for some of their NA models like the Passat and Jetta. They look BORING.....like just boring - and it's like a universal opinion of those cars. Well boring does make them super roomy. But...
