Volkswagen has announced plans to add two new crossovers to its lineup in the years to come.

Speaking to CarAdvice during the Australian launch of the Skoda Fabia, Volkswagen Group Australia managing director John White said VW will expand its crossover offerings by adding two new members, one positioned below the Tiguan while the other above it. The first one is expected to be a production version of the Taigun concepts and will be slotted in the subcompact crossover segment where it will compete with the Renault Captur, Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500X and others.

As for the larger model, White specified it will be directed towards those who want a more stylish crossover rather than a highly functional high-riding model. He went on to say the model will be an evolution of the 2013 CrossBlue Coupe concept and will be an upscale product with more luxury amenities.

Until then, Volkswagen will unveil this fall the all-new Tiguan which will spawn a seven-seat, long-wheelbase version late 2016.
