More pictures of the new VW Tharu

These are pictures of the production version of the new VW Tharu SUV I mentioned just yesterday.
A "smaller that Tiguan" model for China. And probably the US. (Since we are mostly getting the same VW models)

Again, this is not an ugly design. Just almost exactly the same as the Tiguan. And very close to the Atlas. Basically invisible cars without of any form of style. 

The Tiguan is already sub-par when compared to its competition. I cannot imagine this being really great when compared to a Mazda CX-3 or Honda HR-V.

The Chinese model will be available with 1.2 Liter, 1.4 Liter and 2.0 Liter engines.
I expect the US version to be available with the Jetta's 1.4 Liter. 

Let's hope were are at least getting another name as well...

This should not come to the U.S. It will be invisible next to the almost identical lwb tiguan we unfortunately get. The U.S. needs the SWB Tiguan offered here instead.

More trouble for the Jetta. I work at a vw dealer and most people who come see the new Jetta end up leaving with a Tiguan.

Poor man's X1 or a 'German' version of the Rogue Sport? Not only will it affect Jetta sales, it will hurt low end Tiguan versions, but yet again Nissan is able to see the Rogue and Rogue Sporty successfully.
