Volkswagen has announced that a new Polo-based SUV might be coming our way. The unnamed SUV might be the entry-level SUV in VW’s product portfolio as the company is still dilly-dallying on turning theTaigun concept into a production form.
The compact SUV will use VW’s MQB architecture and might be front-wheel-drive only.
Dr Heinz-Jakob Neuser, board member for technical development at VW told us: “A B-segment crossover would fit very nicely into our generous range.
“In the future we will have a minimum of one SUV in each segment – from the top-line SUV (Touareg) to MQB-based models and a number of derivatives including a Golf SUV and a Polo SUV. Core markets for the Polo SUV will be China, South America and Europe.”
These are still early days and Volkswagen has just hinted at the possible development, but does this mean the end of the road for the Taigun concept? Well, its best left for the company to answer. This compact SUV might also make it to India and might be placed just above the Vento.
