      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.

      Guessing thats what its based on?

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

      No. FWD, car-based. Q7 is too expensive.

      Yeah. Same size as the Rav4 and Sorento, in other words.

      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.
