The Detroit News discussed future product plans in an interview with U.S. Volkswagen chief Stefan Jacoby:

Icon Quote:
We are looking at the truck segment as well. The Tiguan (compact SUV) has been very well received, but it's imported out of Europe so we can't realize the volumes that we could get out of that segment. So we are investigating a second product for Chattanooga, either a compact SUV or another SUV model.



I think the Tiguan is pretty small already, can the VeeDub work a smaller 'ute into their lineup?

I don't interpret that statement as a model smaller than the Tiguan, which is already pretty compact. I see it as wanting to move production of the Tiguan or a similar model to the U.S.
