Volkswagen is preparing a crossover that will be larger than Atlas

In the form of a concept called SMV, the large Volkswagen crossover was shown back in April 2019, in Shanghai. Now we have patent images of a production model, the name of a commercial SUV is unknown.

Judging by the images, the conveyor cross repeats the prototype in front and in profile. There are questions with the stern: the SMV lights have a single luminous die, while the serial SUV does not seem to have this element entirely registered. Although the images are mediocre – it is possible that behind the SUV will become a copy of the concept.

The crossover is based on the MQB platform. The length of the SMV Concept is more than 5.1 meters, the production car obviously retained the dimensions of its predecessor, so this will be the largest SUV of the Volkswagen brand. Those. Atlas length – 5039 mm. Although the size of the wheelbase at Atlas and the upcoming cross must be the same, we can not guarantee this.

The interior is not known to us, but photos of the serial implementation salon were posted on the Web. One can distinguish air deflectors made as a single line, a two-story center console and a small joystick instead of the traditional gear lever.

The car will be driven by petrol “turbo four” 2.0 or turbocharged V6 2.5. At Atlas, the first unit produces 186 or 220 hp, the second – 299 hp, both work in tandem with a seven-speed robotic gearbox. Like the Atlas, the new crossover will definitely have all-wheel drive variations.
