There's no question that one of the biggest new markets for cars is the compact SUV. From the Nissan Juke to the Vauxhall Mokka to the Ford EcoSport there seems to be an endless appetite for butch little urban warriors.
According to the German business publication Handelsblatt today, VW are planning to build a VW Up SUV based on the Up Buggy concept and take the Cross Coupe Concept we saw at the Tokyo Motor Show in to production.
Handelsblatt has given no time frame for VW's two new SUVs, but with the market growing quickly and concepts already show it seems likely we could see production compact SUVs as early as 2013.
