2018 Volkswagen Polo SUV

 Small VW crossover has been spied for the primary time, previous its debut in 2018

Earlier this year, we have a tendency to unconcealed details of Volkswagen's larger, additional sensible Polo hatchback, due on sale in 2017. we have a tendency to conjointly confirmed the fashionable supermini would be joined by a jacked-up SUV version – and currently our spy photographers have caught the crossover testing for the primary time.

As we will see from these shots, the new Polo SUV can get a strong body injected at the front and rear for a additional rugged and sportier look. it's going to get a raised ride-height, too, which can additional distinguish the SUV from commonplace models within the vary. it's going to contend head-on with cars just like the Jewish calendar month Juke, Citroen C4 succulent and Peugeot 2008, and is expect to travel on sale shortly when the traditional Polo arrives next year.

VW insiders told US that the next-generation Polo are stretched, because the complete makes its own little automobile the primary supermini within the VW cluster to change to the MQB platform. not like the present model and Skoda Fabia, that sit on older design, successive Polo can introduce the tiniest version nonetheless of the MQB platform, called A0.

• Best crossovers on the market

Engineers are fighting internally over the various wheelbases on supply throughout the MQB platform line-up. The A1 incarnation – that underpins everything from the Audi TT to the Golf SV – includes a total of 5 totally different sizes; however within the interests of saving cash, the A0 design are mounted at only 1 distance, utilized by the Polo so followed by successive versions of the Audi A1, Fabia and SEAT Ibiza.

Auto categorical understands the distance is probably going to live a pair of,560mm – that’s a hefty 90mm increase over the present Polo’s and fewer than 2 centimetres shorter than the Mk6 Golf’s. Expect VW engineers to use this gain to boost rear traveller area and boot capability, though short overhangs front and rear ought to make sure that the hike in overall length is far diminished.

The styling can stay conservative, with cues from the facelifted version of the Golf, that is due before the top of this year. Interior quality are improved slightly, however the largest tweaks within the cabin square measure seemingly to be in property. VW boss Herbert Diess is claimed to own targeted enhancements during this space for all the brand’s vehicles.

 At the center of the new Polo vary are revised versions of VW’s one.0-litre three-cylinder engine, and a switch from one.4 gasoline and one.6 diesel units to contemporary one.5-litre units of each fuel sorts. The move to the MQB design conjointly opens the likelihood for the Polo to be offered as a plug-in hybrid, with either a petroleum or internal-combustion engine incidental the electrical motor. However, the price of this technology may prove associate degree obstacle for such alittle automobile.

That shouldn’t be such a difficulty for the dearer SUV version, that is probably going to be previewed by a thought referred to as the T-Cross. It may conjointly carry that name through to production, though VW includes a range of different badges registered that may work with its convention of naming its SUVs with ‘T’ names, as well as Teracor, Tribue and Terasun. The new model can share a platform and so a distance with successive Polo, nonetheless its style is claimed to be way more daring than the little hatchback’s.

“The baby SUV appearance terribly gaudy,” same one company corporate executive. “You can ponder whether it’s a VW at all; you'll recognise the grille, however it’s a really exciting style elsewhere.” As our exclusive image shows, the SUV is ready to feature a extended rear overhang which will facilitate to create it a bigger automobile altogether – going how to justifying rating that’s seemingly to begin at the center of the Polo line-up.

The newcomer are offered with four-wheeled drive – once more, a feature created doable by the MQB design – and a selection of manual or dual-clutch car transmissions. Its engine line-up can skip the Polo’s naturally aspirated one.0-litre three-cylinder petrols and begin with a turbocharged version of a similar engine, that is ready to deliver around 109bhp.

VW continues to experiment with the thought of a smaller SUV, supported the up! town automobile and previewed by the Taigun conception. whereas that specific project is claimed to own been frozen on the grounds of price and potential profitableness, the complete is reportedly exploring however it may develop it into a vehicle that might be sold  as a cheap, ‘rugged’ vehicle in markets like Brazil – wherever the likes of the Dacia Duster and Ford EcoSport perform well.
