Volkswagen confirms new SUV for China and USA

Volkswagen has confirmed a new sub-Tiguan crossover for sale in markets like China and the USA. As reported by Automotive News Europe, company CEO Herbert Diess says the new crossover – dubbed "Volks-SUV", or the people's SUV – will be produced in Mexico and exported to global markets from 2020. However, the Volks-SUV will not be sold in Europe, where the T-Roc already fills the sub-Tiguan role and appeals better to the region's tastes for a smaller and sportier-looking vehicle.
