Gotcha! VW's Hilux rival

2009-04-30 08:48

Volkswagen’s upcoming pickup, the Robust, has been caught out testing.

These latest spy photos show that VW is ready to take on the Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara when it goes on sale in 2010.

Two-wheel-drive and "off-road capable" 4x4 versions will both be offered. This will give much needed practicality and flexibility to the global markets the Robust is targeted at.

All production will take place in Pacheco, Argentina and rumour has it that it might be sold locally too.

By the way, “Robust” is the working codename. The name may change before the bakkie reaches dealerships.
