Volkswagen has teased a small SUV concept ahead of the Geneva Motor Show. The yet-to-be-named model will debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. While there are not many details about the upcoming VW, the German automaker has plans of a future production version. Judging from the production images, it is likely that the model will be a crossover rather than a traditional SUV. The Volkswagen Small SUV concept looks like a refined version of the Golf-sized crossover utility vehicle.
It is no secret that VW wants in on the crossover market for quite some time now. The latest teaser pictures show us a model that appears to be near production. The company’s statement reads: “Volkswagen gives a realistic perspective on a completely new model series and at the same time on the future production model.”
From what we know of the small SUV concept thus far, it will feature a buttonless (mostly) interior. Switches will not be present too. A Beats Audio System with appropriate Dr. Dre-approved badging will be present. It is likely to have around 300 watts of power. The exterior shows some interesting lighting signatures. There are thin horizontal grilles above and below in a detailed geometric pattern. The concept features a shade of yellow. According to VW, the small crossover would be built on the same MQB underpinnings used by the Golf lineup, as well as pretty much all of the brand’s main-line models except the Touareg SUV and Phaeton flagship sedan.
Beyond this, anything is simply guess work. A hybrid power train is expected. The chances of the crossover having a diesel engine are remote, but we cannot say anything for sure until the Geneva Motor Show in a few days time.
