Volkswagen releases teaser video for 2018 launches

Volkswagen releases teaser video for 2018 launches

Volkswagen has released a teaser video for its major 2018 launches. The 1.5-minute video showcases a variety of models across various segments with some of these cars expected to be India bound. Here then, is a roundup of the cars shown.

Volkswagen Polo
This is the biggest update that VW’s popular budget hatchback has gone through in the last 15 years. The design is evolutionary, but underneath, it’s a new platform and a refreshed engine lineup. The car is India-bound, but first probably in terms of design and then as a complete model when the VW group is able to adapt the MQB-A platform to suit the Indian conditions.

Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze
This is an SUV based on the Polo and will be unveiled in production guise this year, most probably at Geneva in March. Based on the multiple spy shots that we have seen and published, we can be sure that it will look like the slightly larger T-Roc but with the Polo design cues to signify the position of the car in the VW hierarchy.

Volkswagen Touraeg
The original Volkswagen SUV will get a new generation this year. The Touraeg was showcased as the T-Prime concept in 2016 and has already been spotted sans camouflage, giving us a full idea of what the production car will look like. It is unlikely that the Touraeg will come to India as its place in the Indian market is already occupied by models from the Audi range.

Volkswagen Jetta
The D-segment sedan market may be struggling in India, but it is still alive and kicking in Europe and America. Hence a new Jetta. It is a sedan based on the Golf and will finally enter the seventh generation like the former. Expect many Golf like design features as well as similar engine options from the hatchback.

Up GTi
The smallest car that Volkswagen makes has finally been given a performance model and it will go on sale in the next few months. This is full circle of sorts for Volkswagen as the Up GTi has similar specs to what was offered with the first Golf GTi in the late 1970s. We believe that the Up GTi has potential to spawn a superfast and powerful FWD race car.

I.D Range
The Volkswagen I.D electric range was unveiled last year with a mini bus, crossover and hatchback and at least one of them is expected to be shown as a production model in 2018. Our money is on the crossover as this is currently the hottest segment in markets across the world. Given its futuristic place, we believe VW will give it a swanky alphanumeric name.

Pikes Peak Challenger
Volkswagen may have exited a bunch of motor sports but that does not mean that it is leaving the art altogether. Instead they are expected to go fully electric and will start the talent showcase with a new Pikes Peak Challenger. The car will make its climb dance later this year, but it is uncertain now as to who will get behind the wheel for this monumental task.
