    I’m waiting for this VAG Crossover. Don’t know will it be imported to russian auto market, official dealer gives no answer. Even if it will be imported we wouldn’t have hybrid engine, for sure. But I want this SUV so much. I’ve never wanted any car before.

    Do you agree that Cross coupe GTE looks modern? VAG designers did perfect look. But exclusive exterior may lead to low consumers demand, like the scirocco doesn’t have.

    Definitely it’s stylish more than BMW X4 or Mercedes GLC, isn’t it?
