Auto Shanghai 2019 is full of many new SUVs for SUV lovers. Recently, Volkswagen introduced its I.D. Roomzz and also SMV. Volkswagen SMV is even larger than the Atlas SUV. However, Atlas is known as Teramont in China.
This upcoming Volkswagen SMV is 5.1-metres longer than the Atlas. Not just that, it also the largest vehicle built on the MQB platform yet. The model showcased is only a concept model. But, soon VW will make its production model with FAW. Notably, the production model will be ready in just two years.
The interested ones can hope for the 2.0-litre TSI engine or a larger 2.5-litre turbocharged VR6 engine. TSI engine can be available in entry-level whereas VR6 will make its way to high-end variants. But, you won’t get 3.6-litre VR6 engine as of Atlas which is naturally aspirated.
Expectedly, the upcoming car is getting engineered with 4Motuon all-wheel drive & 7-speed DSG. These two will remain standard across all the variants.
VW SMV isn’t ready with the seven-seat interior but glancing at the size it can have more seats. But it will be seven-seater with greatly spacious rows.
Under the hood, the engine will be channelized to deliver 295hp power & 499nm torque in the form of 6-cylinder.
Its tall roofline will offer generous headroom and its exterior looks quite a production ready. Despite the size, SMV doesn’t seem bulky at all.
Unfortunately, Volkswagen SMV will build in China and that too for China only. No hopes for any other country.

Sixth Generation Opel Corsa E Revealed
The sixth-generation Opel Corsa E arrives packing a 134hp and 260Nm electric powertrain that offers 205-mile range approximately. Versions of the new model with gasoline and diesel-fueled engines arrive later.
The electric powertrain includes a 50-kW-hour battery. There are three driving modes: Normal, Eco for maximizing the range, and Sport for better throttle response.

The sixth-gen Opel Corsa looks similar to the current one but with sharper lines and a lighter body. The vehicle also gains available adaptive LED headlights, too. The new model’s length remains the same 4.06 meters, but Opel reports the roofline is 48mm lower than before. Need not to worry about headroom because the driver sits 28mm lower, too.
On the inside, the new Corsa comes standard with a seven-inch infotainment screen but a 10-inch unit is optional. The available Opel Connect telematics service adds features like real-time traffic info to the tech. The driver safety assists include features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, and parking assist.
The company will soon start taking orders for the sixth generation Opel Corsa in a few weeks. Additionally, deliveries of Corsa-e will begin before the end of 2019.
