In this new year the automaker will come up with 2 new SUVs. They will be the new Tiguan and the Atlas. Next year they will be followed by 2 passenger vehicles: the Arteon (the CC’s replacement) and the upgraded Golf.

The first one’s name comes after the conventions of China’s high-end Phideon offering. It hints at the company’s wish to deliver luxury with this model. The Arteon was first teased this past November and it will be showed off in 2017 in Geneva.
