Pictures of the new VW Mid-Size 7 passenger SUV have been buzzing around the internet for the past month(ish). In 2014 it was announced that the new Volkswagen 7-passenger SUV would be built at the new plant in Tennessee after they made expansions to the factory. This week Volkswagen released that they have built the first test body at the Chattanooga Tennessee Plant. This is great news for the customers who are looking for something more price friendly than the Touareg but a smiliar size and great functionality that VW cars offer.
