Volkswagen Polo-based SUV concept to be unveiled at Geneva Motor Show

A German website has revealed that the concept model of its new SUV is almost ready and will be showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in March this year. With the launch date expected to be in 2016, the car, based on the Polo hatchback, has been designed along the lines of the Tiguan SUV.

Back in 2011, Suzuki and Volkswagen mutually decided to end their partnership and with the disassociation, the joint project of creating the compact SUV, Rocktan, was put on hold too. Recently, Volkswagen bosses gave the engineers the go ahead to restart the project on their own. The referred website had previously rendered a picture of how the SUV might look like.

The SUV will be built on Volkswagen’s Modular Transverse Matrix or MQB platform, which forms the base architecture for a majority of the German group’s vehicles. Visually guided by the Tiguan, the new model will bridge the gap between the Tiguan and the Taigun. The SUV will share many parts with the next generation Polo and the engines from the Vento to price it competitively in the compact SUV market.

The SUV will be production-ready by 2016. Besides this car, Volkswagen is also working on an Up!-based SUV which will be the cheapest SUV in VW’s line-up.
