  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Volkswagen Said to Be Prepping Two New Baby SUVs

Recommended Posts

Die neue Volkswagen SUV-Studie T-ROC

-

With the crossover becoming increasingly popular in smaller sizes, Volkswagen is rumored to be readying more than one entry sized below the current Tiguan. The company has already shown the T-ROC concept (above), which is based on its MQB architecture and is said to be headed for production. Now, a report in Autocar says we’ll soon see a second, smaller concept, the T-Cross, which will make its debut at the Geneva auto show in March.

-

Both the T-ROC and the T-Cross are built on VW’s MQB architecture, but the latter is VW Polo-sized, whereas the T-ROC is a closer kin to the Golf. Autocar quotes an unnamed VW executive as saying a production version of the T-Cross would come in around 4000 mm (157.5 inches) long, which would make it smaller than either a Nissan Juke (162.2 inches long) or a Mini Countryman (161.7). The source says the larger T-ROC, by contrast, would be 4200 mm (165.4 inches) long, or just shy of a Jeep Renegade.

-

The T-Cross is expected to hew closely to the design of the T-ROC, with the goal being to establish a familial resemblance between the siblings. We also assume that both will be offered with four doors. The transverse-engine, front-drive MQB architecture would allow for the availability of all-wheel drive, a choice of gasoline or diesel engines, and possibly a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

If the report is correct, we’ll see more of the T-Cross in March. Whether we’ll ever see a production version on our shores is a different question, however. Volkswagen’s U.S. dealers are largely sitting out the boom in crossover sales, with just two aging models, the Tiguan and the Touareg. Certainly, VW wants to get more CUVs into its U.S. stores. A new Tiguan and a large, three-row crossover are coming next year, but there’s plenty of room below them for at least one model—and maybe even a second.
