Volkswagen T-Track: Finally, there will be a SUV based on the Up!, but it will not be the Taigun

The Volkswagen Group seeks to expand its range of crossovers with the addition of some new models which will complement the existing. The Volkswagen T-Track will be the youngest of the family.

Volkswagen has decided to adjust its range to suit the current demands of the market and is therefore committed to providing a crossover for each segment. This means the incorporation of some new alternatives that are below their current models and one of those new models will be a crossover for the segment that will use the architecture of the Up!.

Surely you will remember the Taigun, a small model that Volkswagen had developed on the basis of the Up!, but they finally decided not to build due to its reduced dimensions. However the times have changed and now the Taigun will return as a production model, although adapted to the language of current design under a new name, since will now be called the Volkswagen T-Track.

will Also be based on the same platform used by the Up!, although in this occasion, thave dimensions close to those of the SEAT Arona and bodywork of five doors, with a length of around 4,00 metres, as opposed to just 3.80 metres of the prototype Taigun.

If we talk about mechanical, possibly the offer of engines include the TSI of 1.0 liter and the TDI of 1.5 liters, always with front-wheel drive, in line with his potential rivals.

With a base price of around 15,000 €, the Volkswagen T-Track will be the answer to models like the Kia Stonic, and even some more small as the Fiat Panda City Cross.

The range of suvs from Volkswagen, is then formed by the T-Track, T-Cross, T-Roc, Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace and Touareg, while in some markets will be down available the Atlas and even the Thaur, a derivative of the Škoda Kodiaq which may possibly be developed for asian markets and Latin America. This last will use the modular platform MQB and will have dimensions close to the 4,40 metres, that is to say, which will be located half way between the T-Cross and Tiguan AllSpace.
