Last night, Volkswagen announced it would unveil two new production vehicles — not concepts — at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show. Both unveilings will be global debuts, meaning they haven’t appeared overseas before this event.
We can offer a good guess that one of the cars will be the convertible version of the redesigned Beetle, which recently went on sale.
As for the other, we’re unsure. For the most part VW’s lineup is current, and we doubt they’d debut new versions of the Golf or Routan. Perhaps the rumored three-row crossover will be unveiled? It’s more likely a variant of an existing product, but you never know.
We’ll be covering all the vehicles at the L.A. Auto Show during the media preview on Nov. 16 and 17.
