New VW Tharu coming up.


 Looks like yet another VW SUV is coming up soon. In China.

Since we already share a few VW models with China (Passat and Atlas), I wonder if this one will end up over here as well.
Is this the "smaller than Tiguan" model they are talking about?

It is a production version of the "Powerful Family SUV" concept they introduced just a short while ago.

And here is the "Powerful Family SUV" concept (talk about a stupid name...)

I can't really tell if this is smaller than the Tiguan or not. The front end looking more like the Atlas...

Yes, this is the same as the crossover VW announced would be slotting below the Tiguan in the U.S., but I believe it is being marketed as slotting above the Tiguan elsewhere.

It's a Facelifted SKODA and looks better than the Tiguan.

It is a Seat Ateca with different grille and lights, so slightly smaller than a Tiguan, but not much. The Ateca starts under the Tiguan price wise mostly because you can get it with smaller engines and simpler equipment, plus a lot more cheap materials inside...
