These four SUVs are lining up to go on sales in our market in the next 2 years. The German carmaker shows its interest in the emerging SUV segment and reveals its intention to bring its internationally-succeeded SUV to our market.
At the stage of the Auto Expo 2020, Volkswagen A0 SUV, the biggest interest of the SUV line-up, will show up under the form of a near-production model. This model will be underpinned by the MBA0 IN platform which is based on the international-spec MBA0 and developed specifically for the India market. With the revised platform, the A0 SUV will sport a wheelbase of 2,651 mm, which is longer the Euro-spec T-Cross by 100mm. Along with the new platform, the India-spec A0 SUV will come with new body panels and better interior space. Higher ground clearance is also promised. The A0 SUV is expected to go on sales in our market in a few months.
Volkswagen A0 is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre TSI Petrol engine which can deliver a top power of 130 Bhp. While there is little chance for a diesel engine to show up in the range of the upcoming SUV, it is likely to get a CNG option for its petrol engine.
