10.13.20: SUV The Date, VW’s Tarek(?) Online Unveil

VW will reveal the SUV meant to slot below the current Tiguan in the USA on Oct. 13. Expect a variation of the Tharu (China)/Tarek (Brazil) dubbed either Tarek or Taos. It’s shorter than a Tiguan and gives your VW dealer a larger opportunity: luring shoppers seeking “entry-level” subcompact/compact SUVs. VW says it discontinued the Beetle’s production in Mexico, which opened production capacity there for this latest SU-VW.  Expect the T-named ride to arrive in the States during 2021.
