These images, of a quad-cab Robust, finally start revealing some of the design cues even if the prototype is heavily taped up.
Volkswagen's latest project, the VW Robust pick-up truck (or so it has been referred to as well as Volkswagen Taro II), has been rumoured about for a while now and was recently confirmed at an Argentinian agricultural show through a design sketch ad. We have also seen the new Robust in Toyota Hilux-mule shape and as a blurred pick-up in the distance, but today one of our spy photographers spotted the Robust on the highway.
These images, of a quad-cab Robust, finally start revealing some of the design cues even if the prototype is heavily taped up. The Volkswagen pick-up will be a global car and will be built in both Germany and Argentina as a 2WD and 4x4. We are expecting the VW Robust to hit the market in 2010 with only the US as a possible exception.
The Volkswagen Robust will be made available in a few variations like single cab and double cab, two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive.
