The Mercury Cars Guide : November 26th 2011
MERCURY ON SATURDAY 4--- Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au Saturday, November 26, 2011 04 Passat SUV TOP SPOT The Volkswagen Passat is US Motor Trend magazine's Car of the Year for 2012 Car news VW does Outback email@example.com PAUL GOVER The German maker is going after Subaru on its popular SUV turf On track: Could a VW Passat off-roader look something like Skoda's nuggety Scout? A NEED for more family- friendly SUVs will bring a Passat-based crossover wagon into Volkswagen's line-up next year. The newcomer will be revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show in less than a month --- possibly wearing a CrossTrak badge --- on the home ground of its target, Subaru's Outback. Subaru has been a consistent winner with its high-riding Outback and Forester wagons and Volkswagen is going down the same track, says a German insider at the Los Angeles Auto Show. He promises a vehicle similar in style to the latest Skoda Yeti from Volkswagen Group, as VW continues work on a series of crossover cars based on the Up and Polo. Volkswagen will have a couple of big advantages over Subaru with its newcomer, as it has an automatic transmission to trump its rival's CVT system and can supply a diesel engine with more than just the manual shift in the Outback. It could also have more cabin space and standard luxury. But Volkswagen is unlikely to challenge the pricetag of the Outback, which starts at $38,490 with a 2.5-litre petrol engine. Its starting sticker is likely to be in the mid-$40,000 range, rising sharply to $60,000 for a fully equipped car.
