VW up!, VW Polo: Two small SUVs in the works!

VW up! SUV, VW Polo SUV

VW seems to be working on 2 new small SUVs based on the VW up! and VW Polo.

Citing unnamed company sources, the newspaper wrote that a subcompact crossover built on the underpinnings of the Polo, which would potentially go up against the Nissan Juke and Opel Mokka, as well as an even smaller model based on the Up! city car, are “certain”.

A Volkswagen spokesperson would not confirm the models on the report, but said, ”SUVs are very interesting. Our modular production system allows us further spinoffs. We haven’t made a decision yet.”

Autonews Europe said that in concern of the subcompact SUV, VW had originally planned to base this model on the Suzuki SX4 and that it was to be called the Rockton, but the divorce proceedings between Volkswagen and Suzuki “killed off the project”.
