Volkswagen is pointing the way to the automotive future at this year's IAA, with the premieres of the I.D. Crozz, T-Roc, Polo GTI and the Golf Sportsvan.

19 Sep 2017 | International News : Germany

The Volkswagen brand is pointing the way to the future at its motor show appearance at this year's International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt, Germany. Along with the world premiere of the new I.D. Crozz - a zero-emission Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) that will go into production in 2020 - three other premieres will be featured, the new T-Roc, Polo GTI and the updated Golf Sportsvan.

The T-Roc combines the effortless superiority of an SUV with the agility of a sporty compact model
In presenting the updated I.D. Crozz, a four-door electric concept car, the Volkswagen brand is offering a look at the SUV of the future. This crossover of SUV and coupe, which makes a masculine and powerful impression, has been systematically further developed with an eye towards a production car. The driving range of the SUV that puts out 225kW (system power) and boasts a top speed of 180km/h is up to 500km on one battery charge.

As part of the largest model campaign in the brand's history, Volkswagen will soon be extending its model lineup to include the new, expressively designed T-Roc. The crossover model, which is a completely new development, celebrated its world premiere just weeks ago, and it will bring fresh momentum to the class of compact SUVs. The all-round vehicle, which can be ordered with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, combines the aplomb of an SUV with the agility of a sporty compact model.

Inseparably associated with Volkswagen is the letter combination GTI - the world's most familiar identifier for sporty compact cars. Now a new Volkswagen GTI is launching - the next Polo GTI, which is also celebrating its show premiere in Frankfurt. This means that the Wolfsburg-based manufacturer will have three GTI models in its GTI family lineup - the iconic Golf GTI (227bhp and 242bhp), the up! GTI (113bhp) that launches in 2018 and the new Polo GTI with 197bhp.

Another vehicle being shown to the public for the first time at the IAA is the updated Golf Sportsvan. This is the favourite model for all of those who swear by the Golf but prefer greater seat height, versatility and space. Technical highlights of the updated Golf Sportsvan are three new petrol engines (TSI), new infotainment systems (top system has gesture control for the first time), an extended range of assistance systems and new standard equipment features such as LED taillight clusters. Pre-sales of the updated compact multi-purpose vehicle begin this autumn for Germany.
