segment of the pick-up is one of the more “rare” (see the quotes) that exists in the automotive sector. For those not in the know, in Spain, are vehicles that are classified as industrial and although they have improved exponentially their attitudes and equipment continue to be vehicles of court work. However in other countries of the world are cars especially valued for their qualities in order to load and even imposing image.
Some of these markets are in America and as your maximum exponent we have the united States. However Latin America is also very fond of this kind of cars because they are better adapted to circulate by your broken network of roads. It is precisely in these markets where the Volkswagen Group wants to face up to the archiconocidas Fiat Bull, Renault Duster Oroch and next Hyundai Crete STC.
In Brazil, Argentina, Chile and more markets of south america Volkswagen sold his pick-up Amarok without major complications. The problem arises when we talk about pick-up, smaller and better adapted to certain types of jobs. Therefore the direction of the conglomerate German would have given permission to develop a new pick up that is included in the segment of compact vehicles.
As reported by several local media, the new pick-up Volkswagen will be resting on the modern platform MQB-A0 which already gives life to the new Seat Ibiza. Of this be certain this vehicle would have to have some skills more than good to scroll through the roads of the Mercosur. As it is logical you can ride a four-wheel drive switchable 4Motion, but will not be able to mount a reduction gear or locks the differential.
Another of the data that we know is that you can ride the same range of engines diesel and gasoline that fits the Seat Ibiza (and his brothers of the platform). As engine star we will have the petrol 1.4 TSI with various levels of power. In the plane of engines diesel unknown what will be under your engine bay in addition to if you reach the 1.5 TSI more modern of the group.
The question that arises with this vehicle is if you finally will end up being sold in Europe. The reason why we say this is simple and focuses on its structure and possibilities of the mechanical. Your base is very modern, and to adapt the mechanics of the Ibiza and company could well serve to open a new market niche and help improve the sales of the consortium. Time to time.
