Volkswagen three-row crossover spy photosTue, 16, Aug 2016
Spy photographers recently spotted Volkswagen's unnamed, three-row crossover. While specs are not known, the side profile looks very similar to the 2013 CrossBlue concept that previewed the vehicle, and rear styling is consistent with shapes introduced on the 2016 Passat midsize sedan. The crossover will be based on VW's MQB platform introduced on the 2015 Golf family – and the basis of nearly all future VW models. It should offer at least seven seats and be sized similarly to the Honda Pilot. The interior will be styled in line with the latest Golf models. When loaded with features such as a sunroof and driver assistance technologies, the crossover is expected to approach the $50,000 mark and be among the most expensive vehicles in a VW showroom.
