Volkswagen is apparently developing a double cab bakkie to rival the Nissan Navara, Toyota Hilux and Mitsubishi Triton.
According to the UK's Auto Express magazine VW is currently testing a flat-bed model.
The all-new 4x4 will be apparently be given the Robust badge.
Auto Express reports that the Robust will have proper off-road ability and that there will even be single-cab versions.
Furthermore an SUV spin-off using Robust underpinnings, which will take on the Nissan Pathfinder and Toyota Fortuner, could also be in the pipeline.
Auto Express says that such a model would sit between the Tiguan and Touareg.
