VOLKSWAGEN FOR THE FIRST TIME SHOWED A CROSS-COUPE BASED ON POLO

It turns out that the bright but small all-terrain vehicle on the VW Polo platform

It turns out that the bright but small all-terrain vehicle on the VW Polo platform, which is being developed by Volkswagen's Brazilian division, will not be called the T-Sport. From the previously invented name decided to abandon in favor of a more sonorous name: Volkswagen Nivus.

However, under this name, the cross-coupe will enter the South American market, where this word will have to echo the name of another co-platform model-VW Virtus sedan. But for European countries in the name of Volkswagen T-Sport can and save.

The crossover will be built on a simplified version of the MQB platform, which is now the basis of the entire Polo family, but the dimensions of the Nivus are expected to be closer to the hatchback than to the sedan.

According to preliminary data, the motor range of the crossover in its native market will be very limited: it will consist of a single motor. Three-cylinder engine with a volume of 1.0 liters due to turbocharging will be able to develop 116 HP, and if it is fed with biofuel, will provide 128 HP. 

However, according to other data, the differences in power will be associated with the characteristics of transmissions: for the younger prepared manual transmission, and the older detachment 6-speed automatic. Given some of the design nuances of the platform, it is not surprising that the Volkswagen Nivus will only be front-wheel drive.

The first plant that will start producing cross-coupe, will be the company VW in Brazil, where the novelty will be on sale in the second half of next year. But by 2021, Volkswagen is expected to adjust the Assembly of "Nivus" and other plants, including in Europe.
