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.
