2006 VW Bedouin


Another easy name to pronounce for the US market...

This photo based illustration pretty much shows what the Golf based SUV will look like.
Set to come out in September in Europe. No word on when it'll get here.
You can bet the great 2.0 Liter Turbo will be at the party.

Just like the Touareg, it almost looks old before it even came out..

Odd name for a German car:

Bedu, the Arabic word from which the name bedouin is derived, is a simple, straightforward tag. It means "inhabitant of the desert," and refers generally to the desert-dwelling nomads of Arabia, the Negev, and the Sinai.

I wonder if VW expects them to be popular in Palm Springs;-).

Thanks for refeering to this pic as a photo based illustration. I take it that you read my Ford 500 post? :-)

UGLY UGLY UGLY. I like the Toureg, but hate this thing. I think the new Golf and new Jetta are ugly as sin also, so I guess i'm not suprised that I hate this too. Blech. VW is going downhill so fast, it's not even funny.
