VW Concept A
They actually claim this gives us a good idea of what the upcoming Golf based SUV will look like.
In their words:
“It would be priced against the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. VW said the Concept A should be regarded as an indicator of where the design is headed. The production model will be less coupe-like, but similar in design language and proportions.The front fascia and bold wheel arches are here to stay, but the production model will have a b-pillar for structural rigidity, and will have standard doors. “
So far, the spy pictures we’ve seen show us a very different car. A much more boring “higher Golf” looking SUV.
Let’s hope they can keep most of this cool design.
And if they really go against the RAV4 and the CRV, that also means a pretty good price.
I guess they would have to change the rear hatch design anyway, at least in the US.
The Euro Civic has the same problem where the hatch becomes the bumper. Imagine the cost of a small fender bender….
And please, resist the temptation. Do not use the current Golf/Jetta 1985 looking dash.
