Aravind Jayachandran,

It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

To launch in global markets in 2017-18.

Volkswagen is currently working on the next generation VW Polo, which will spawn an SUV that is expected to launch in global markets from 2017-2018.

Car and Driver Brasil has rendered the production-spec VW Polo SUV (name unconfirmed) based on cues borrowed from the VW T-Cross Breeze concept. It will be based on the shortest version of the MQB platform (dubbed MQ A0), and is reported to be shorter than the Audi Q2 which is 4,191 mm-long.

With the new platform, the Polo SUV will also get a new range of fuel efficient powertrains such as new 1.0- and 1.5-litre TSI engines paired to manual or DSG gearboxes. The T-Cross Breeze concept had a 1.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine that produces 110 PS and 175 Nm of torque. It’s unclear if VW will offer its 4MOTION AWD system in the Polo SUV.
