I know VW can't, but it VW was capable of pricing it correctly (when correctly equipped), they could use this in the USA.

T-Roc is an OK name in VW's welfare free clinic naming scheme.

The DLO if pure Skoda Fabia. If that car was presented in 2010, no one would have noticed. That front end also looks weridly sagging...

There's an article today saying this is confirmed for the US:

http://www.motor1.com/news/139650/vw...s-launch-2019/

Of course, it won't happen until 2019, at least, because VW is unsure if American customers want crossovers. *sigh*

I'm also amazed how much VW managed to water down the concept.

The one with "unsure if Americans want a cross over" must be a joke, please....

That said, I agree, the concept (especially the convertible one) looked like an entirely different car, proportions, but also in detailing like the font end. It wasn't super handsome or progressive, but interesting enough. This however isn't. however, in Europe I'm sure the badge alone will sell it.....

From the article:

"Automotive News has learned from a source close to the folks from Wolfsburg the model in question is scheduled to arrive in United States in 2019 after local dealers gave VW assurances they’ll be able to move enough crossovers to make a profit."

*Sigh*

Anyway, the concept should be sold right away, just as it is. It would make a perfect Scirocco replacement. Yes, i know it's not the same type of car, but the Scirocco has not been much of a success anyway and the whole world is into Crossovers now. A small two door, trail ready, sporty convertible car sounds pretty sweet to me. And is was pretty too.

If true, this decision making process would be in stark conflict with the traditional "Don't tell us what you want, Wolfsburg knows whats best for you" approach.

Many their design teams must have an easy life. I'd say the only other company doing less for new designs is FCA.

The irony being, of course, that the one time VW should go with a top-down approach, they don't.
