Spied: VW’s Hilux pickup rival
The following spy pics give us a good idea of what’s to come and show that VW is ready to take on the Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara when it goes on sale in 2010.
VW will offer a two-wheel-drive and “off-road capable” 4×4 version of the new pickup. 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, but the name may change before the bakkie gets shipped out to dealerships.
