Magazine foresees Passat-based SUV

CAR Magazine is reporting that a near full-size sport utility vehicle may roll off the assembly line at Volkswagen’s Chattanooga plant in coming years based on the Passat.

The VW crossover is expected to come on line in 2015, the magazine reported, and in today's dollars would sell for about $25,000 for the base version.

Also, VW of America chief Jonathan Browning told the Society of Automotive Analysts that VW should be profitable in the United States this year for the first time in many years, according to the Detroit Free Press. VW’s Audi-brand sales made money last year in the U.S., Browning said.
