Volkswagen is developing a new crossover for the Brazilian auto market. The new car will be named Volkwagen Nivus and based on the Polo. After the official teaser images, recently, a new teaser revealing the car interior has been released. First, let’s have a look at the teaser video.
According to the new teaser, the car is equipped with a wide touchscreen infotainment system which supports VW Play, which is the auto company’s newest multimedia system. A fully digital instrument cluster is also available along with the steering wheel borrowed from the T-Cross. Noteworthily, the Nivus comes with Volkswagen’s new logo. Other outstanding features include a start/stop unit, park assist and electric trunk opener.
The new VW Nivus comes with a large touchscreen infotainment system.
Since the Nivus shares the MQB A0 platform with the Volkswagen Polo, it will have the same wheelbase length as the hatchback, measuring 2,560 mm. The crossover is likely to receive its power from a 1.0-litre turbo TSI gasoline burner which will be available in two different states of tunes. Specifically, this engine can generate 116 HP and 126 HP in the manual and automatic versions, respectively. An FWD system will be offered as standard across all the variants.
As regards the exterior, the Nivus is expected to feature LED headlights with DRLs, functional roof rails, two-tone alloy wheels, and plastic cladding and LED taillights, which makes it look more robust. The Nivus will go on sale in Brazil initially before going to European markets in 2021.
Coming back to the German auto manufacturer's models in the Indian auto market, the seven-seat Tiguan AllSpace has been recently introduced to the country at INR 33.12 lakh (ex-showroom). The SUV keeps under its hood a BS6 2.0-litre TSI petrol motor which is good for 190 HP against 320 Nm. In India, the vehicle competes against the Mahindra Alturas G4, Toyota Fortuner, Ford Endeavour and Skoda Kodiaq.
