In order to strengthen its position in the United States, in the past few months, in August the German automaker has convinced to focus in developing a seven- passenger three- row crossover. Now, it is the time for Volkswagen to show its persistence in creating such a car.

It seems the three- row crossover will sit on the United States market Passat’s platform which supports to keep the costs low. This vehicle also probably share a number of features with the lately- introduced Skoda three row crossover. The power of the car is expected to be derived from the Passat’s 3.6 liter VW, but a 3.0 liter turbodiesel also possible.
The company hopes, its three- row crossover to deliver its mentioned objectives for as many 800,000 yearly sales in the States by 2018. However, these sales achievement is most likely fall to Honda which has succeed in figuring sales rate of 102,323 Honda Pilot’s examples in 2010. Another sales potential is figured by the Ford Explorer which records as many 100,000 unit examples in the past October this year.
This three- row crossover is expected to compete with both Pilot and Explorer in competitive price as well. This vehicle is set to go on sale with the tag price of around $29,000. Just wait for this crossover to arrive on sale some years later.
