2008-04-01 08:03
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.
