Volkswagen To Release “Rocktan” Crossover Based On Suzuki SX4
Share this Article

Volkswagen, looking to take advantage of their tie-up with Suzuki, is apparently angling to use the Suzuki SX4 as a new crossover, designed to compete with the Hyundai Tuscon and the Europe-only Nissan Qashqai.

The crossover would retain Suzuki’s AWD system, but likely use Volkswagen’s TSI and TDI engines, rather than the pedestrian Suzuki motors. Sources that that the vehicle will be given the rather strange moniker of “Rocktan”. The vehicle is expected to debut around 2012, in time for the next generation SX4.

    I’m hoping VW lends some of their more powerfull engines to the SX4 versions a 2.0T or TDI would be killer.

  • i can has sx4 my way?

    I hope does not have a solid beam rear axle like the current SX4 and Jetta.
