VW to introduce a new compact crossover in U.S. by 2019; might be built in Mexico
Volkswagen will launch a new compact crossover in the United States in 2019, to fill a gap below the new Mexico-built Tiguan, after U.S. dealers gave a firm commitment they can sell enough of the vehicle to make it profitable, a source at the company told Automotive News.
Whether the T-Roc will be built in Mexico, Chattanooga or imported from Portugal is yet to be determined.
The T-Roc, which is likely to be renamed for the U.S. market, launches this August in Europe and will come optional with all-wheel drive.
