Polo Nivus

In the rest of the wolrd it could perhaps be known as the T-Cross Coupe. Not bad, would like to see it in the "flesh" before making my mind up:

This is an article from the same German website stating VAG registered a few new names for forthcoming models:

Sorry, but not for me. I struggle to understand why some of these new models are launched. What does the Nivus offer a buyer over a T Cross, other than less headroom for rear seat passengers, and a sloping rear window? I’m sure it’ll sell though, with SUV type vehicles seeming to be the current trend.

VW are also going to be launching a convertible version of the T-Roc. I was under the impression that VW were moving away from producing vehicles aimed at low volume niche segments, which is why they killed off the Scirocco and the Beetle. So producing a convertible T-Roc seems a strange move; if I wanted a convertible, I certainly wouldn’t be considering a convertible SUV.

That same website mentioned the T-Roc convertable will have a premium of 3000 Euro over standard model with roof.

Wow! 😯. With that sort of price premium over the standard ‘tin top’ model, I can’t see VW selling many, so it’s likely to be a very rare sight on the roads.
