The next gen Volkswagen Fox is expected to make its public debut in late 2015 and it has now emerged that the next gen car would be underpinned by the new much hyped Volkswagen MQB platform. This will make Fox the second VW car in Brazil to make use of the new platform.
The new MQB platform results into a lighter weight, improved fuel economy and better cabin space. Volkswagen claims that the new platform also bestows them with a 20% reduction in production costs and a 30% reduction in assembly time.
It may be noted that the Fox is among the top ten highest selling brand of cars in Brazil- an important market for Volkswagen. Hence, it doesn’t come across as a surprise that the car maker plans to build the next gen model on the new MQB platform.
