    The Volkswagen Tarek will go on sale in North America as the brand's crossover offering below the Tiguan. Volkswagen Argentina revealed the plans during a press presentation explaining the new investment at the factory in Pacheco. It indicated that assembly would start in 2021. One of the images, published by Argentina Autoblog (above), listed the countries that will receive the VW Tarek, including Canada, the United States, and Mexico.

    The Tarek is already available in China (pictured above), but the company sells it as the Tharu there. The Chinese version measures 175.3 inches long, 72.5 inches wide, 64.3 inches tall, and has a 105.5-inch wheelbase. In comparison, the North American Tiguan is 185.1 inches long, 72.4 inches wide, 66.3 inches tall, and has a 109.8-inch wheelbase.

    Another case of a company moving to more CUV models and looking to cut more cars.

    Word is the standard Golf here may be gone.

    Tiguan is small enough as it is, what is this, a competitor for the X1?

    This generation of Tiguan is larger than the last and is 185" long. VW has room to slot one or two CUVs under the Tiguan to stay competitive with other brands.

    Hyundai has three CUVs (Tucson, Kona and Venue) smaller than the Tiguan.

    It’s a good thing they changed the name from the Chinese version, because Tharu doesn’t make sense in English.
