In fiscal year 2009, numerous new and attractive models will be added as logical complements to the Volkswagen Group’s vehicle range.
The new Polo is the focus for the Volkswagen Passenger Cars brand in 2009. The completely redesigned vehicle will be launched in the first half of the year and will redefine the subcompact segment with its quality and design standards. The Polo BlueMotion1 will follow in the second half of the year. The Golf family will be expanded to include the roomy high-roofed Golf Plus version, the Golf Variant, Golf GTD and Golf GTI, along with the particularly fuel-efficient Golf BlueMotion1.
The Audi brand will supplement the Audi A5 series with a convertible and a sportback model, thus setting new standards in this segment. At the end of 2009, the success story will continue in the premium class with the unveiling of the new Audi A8.
SEAT will upgrade its model range with the Exeo, which was presented at the 2008 Paris Motor Show and which represents its entry into the important mid-range saloon and estate car segment.
For the first time, Škoda is introducing a compact SUV model to the market, again underscoring the brand’s talent for offering smart vehicle solutions at affordable prices.
Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will completely revamp the Multivan/Transporter, Caravelle and California models.
Bentley will expand its range to include the Continental GTC Speed2 and the Azure T2.
Bugatti will cap its leading position among sports cars with the Veyron Grand Sport2.
