The vehicle based on the MQB
will be designed and developed in Brazil.
The group will launch a new SUV based on VW's flexible MQB
platform by the second half of 2020.
Manufactured under the German carmaker's symbolic MQB
production platform, the new Tiguan SUV has successfully reduced its weight by 50 kilograms compared to its predecessor.
Thanks to the adoption of the Volkswagen Group's lighter, stiffer MQB
chassis, the car feels far more agile through bends you'll be able to attack with a little more gusto thanks to sharper steering and a standard XDS+ Electronic Differential Lock that reduces understeer and improves stability as you turn.
platform uses a large number of common parts across its range of models and brands, allowing it to assemble vehicles more quickly and at lower costs.
For the occasion they will present the first product, entirely conceived, designed and built by MQB
: Automobile 36: a pedal car for children from 3 to 6 years.
It's not too difficult to see the benefits of that smart MQB
The modular nature of MQB
means that making it longer, shorter or even wider is comparatively easy, giving Skoda real flexibility in product planning.
Using Volkswagen Group's clever MQB
platform (the infinitally variable structure that's used in the Golf, Audi TT and loads of other VW Group cars) the new Superb is 28mm longer than before at 4861mm and, at 1864mm, is 28mm longer.
And as the new generation Golf got transformed by the use of the new MQB
platform, the Jetta continues to be built on the earlier architecture.
Like all transverse front-engined VW group products nowadays, it will use the MQB
platform that underpins the VW Golf, Audi A3, SEAT Leon et al.
So there is the MQB
, or Modular Transverse Kit, assigned to Volkswagen; the MLB, or Modular Longitudinal Kit, assigned to Audi; and the MSB, Modular Standard Car Kit, assigned to Porsche.
