The Detroit News - October 25, 2012

Volkswagen AG expects to build an all-new SUV in the U.S. designed for American customers after the success of the new Passat sedan.

Its new SUV would be bigger than the $22,995 Tiguan SUV, smaller than the $43,000-plus Touareg, but technically simpler than those vehicles and more affordable.

The Wolfsburg, Germany-based automaker is likely to build it in Chattanooga, Tenn., where it produces the Passat.

VW expects to restore its U.S. operations to profit in 2013, as part of an objective to be the world’s leading automaker by 2018.
