The Snowman will be based on an extended version of the MQB platform, and will be positioned above the Yeti, serving as their flagship SUV. It will feature the company’s latest design language, and is reported to be 4,700 mm long.

At the moment, technical details are scarce. Being based on the MQB platform, there are a wide range of engines in VAG that are compatible with Snowman. It is likely to source its engine lineup from the Octavia and Superb sedans, which include the 2.0-liter TDI and 1.8-liter TSI engines, paired to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG.
