The pictures you’ll see on our gallery below are the pictures of a Volkswagen 7-seater SUV based on the new Passat platform, which will struggle the other vehicles in the segment like the Toyota Highlander, the previous Mazda CX-9, the great Honda Pilot and also the Volvo XC90. The recent new Volkswagen 7-seater SUV will insert in between the Tiguan and the new Touareg.
Under its hood, you’ll find a 7-seater which is now positioned under the recent 5-seater Touareg. The difference is that the new Touareg has a premium positioning and also shares a platform with high end cars like the Q7 and the Cayenne. Meanwhile, this new 7-seater will be the Passat-derived.
Moreover, Volkswagen recently doesn’t have a 7-seater there, and has optioned to re-badging a Chrysler minivan as the new Volkswagen Routan. We’ll easily guess that the Touran is too small for the USA market, and the Sharan is so expensive.
But, Theophilus Chin, previously has rendered the picture showing a Volkswagen 7-seater SUV which is more utilitarian than the premium, based on the Amarok, just the same way which Toyota built the Fortuner on the Hilux and also Mitsubishi built the Pajero Sport on the Triton. But the decision to make it has been based on the Passat platform should make sure the lower weight and also increased comfort in addition to the dynamics. For your information, the concept version of this 7-seater will be showed at the 2013 Detroit Motor Show in this month. Just enjoy it in our gallery.
