      VW Roccan

      VW will have an all new SUV just between the Touareg and Tiguan. Details are slim, but the Roccan was foreshadowed by the recent concept Cross Coupe. Set to launch in early 2014, Volkswagen hopes this model will fill the gap who find the Touareg to big and the Tiguan too small. It is built on the new MQB platform and will be available Europe, America, and China.

      I would Roc that. Get it? Somebody had to say it.

      Seriously. That is the niche vehicle I would fit into.

      Looks like a derivative from the Q7.

      This must be fake because Roccan is far too easy to pronounce.

      I hope so. I can't really justify the Toureg3 TDI over a Q7 TDI. It would be silly for VW to not have a 3 row SUV.

      I just did, and saved $20K.....besides, I only needed to seat 5. in fact, we chose the Touareg 3 over the Q5 as the Q5 can't seat 5 people as comfortably as the Touareg 3.

      Yes. A lot.

      And why ? It's a hot segment, and the Tiguan is completely uncompetitive. They need a standard family crossover for the US and Chinese markets.

      If it's smaller than our CX-9 (like the Rav4 and Sorento are), but costs roughly the same, I can't say it'll interest me. The CX-9's third row is already cramped... if this is smaller, meh.

      The Touareg, Q7, and Cayenne are already relatives.

      This is presumably transverse-engined, Passat-related, and in the $25k-35k range.

      Looks like it would fit into the crowd with the Venza and Journey, though I would take a Passat All Track before this.

      Perhaps you have noticed that SUVs are rather popular with many people who buy cars. You may have also noticed that Volkswagen is in the business of selling cars. The smart money is on those who create products that people want. It has taken quite some time, but Volkswagen of America seems to get this now.

      The was because I thought there was no need for an SUV that is sized between the Toureg and the Tiguan. Realizing that there is a sizeable gap I may not be do dissappointed.

      Well then they should certainly introduce another six or seven suv models.

      How did you manage to save $20k? Seems far fetched since the T3 TDI starts at $46k while the Q7 is at $51.5k

      Edit- Good choice on the T3 over the Q5. Definitely a no brainer to me.

      They should be able to sell another hatchback over here then,right? Polo, A1(can hope)...anything? I mean golf/bettle sales trounce their suv sales, so wouldn't they want to just give us more of what we want?

      still boring. sorry for not being excited by boring, or for wanting not boring. Please VW, please announce the orgasm of a car that would be the golf hybrid. I would be so very excited.

      The Tiguan, a small seller in SUV terms, still outsells the Golf in the US.
