2018 Volkswagen Three-Row Crossover Spied!
Extremely late, but definitely on its way.
What It Is: Volkswagen’s extremely late entry to the lucrative three-row family-crossover segment, first confirmed for production two years ago. (The vehicle has been bandied about within VW since 2011, and the segment has existed for at least a decade.) For now, the SUV is nameless, although several concepts previewing it have used variations of Cross Blue, Cross Coupe, and other crossed-up monikers. But wait, you might be thinking—couldn’t this be some kind of Jeep Grand Cherokee–based mystery prototype? Look closer at these photos. Those taillights are stickers made to look like a Jeep’s real-life units, while the front end’s made-up X-shaped badge and hollow, unadorned grille opening are other visual tricks designed to throw off onlookers.
