Volkswagen held its annual general meeting last week, in which the brand outlined the progress it has made regarding its “Transform 2025+” strategy. One of the more interesting bits of news to have come out of the event was the timeline of new models that it is planning to unveil this year.

In total, as many as ten new vehicles will be launched globally in 2017, five of which are new to the brand, with no predecessors – such as the Atlas, Arteon and Tiguan Allspace that have already been shown. The next big reveal is the new Polo, which will make its debut in June.

Riding on the smaller A0 version of the modular MQB platform that also underpins the new Seat Ibiza, Wolfsburg’s sixth-generation supermini will be larger than before, and come with a range of Euro 6-compliant TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines. Photos of an undisguised vehicle have already surfaced, showing an evolutionary design that borrows plenty from the facelifted Mk7 Golf.

Next in line is the T-Roc, a B-segment crossover previewed by a concept in 2014, that will enter a new territory for Volkswagen when it is revealed in August. A plug-in hybrid version of the China-only Phideon flagship is also set to be unveiled around the same time.

After that is the all-new Touareg, which will come in November. Built on the same MLB Evo platform that already sees service on the other full-size SUVs in the Volkswagen Group, the Bentley Bentayga and Audi Q7, it is expected to feature a 48-volt electrical architecture as well as provisions for a plug-in hybrid powertrain.

In the same month, Volkswagen will pull the covers off the next-generation Polo Sedan. Already known as the Vento in many markets (including ours), the B-segment design will be launched in South America with a new name, the Virtus. At the tail end of the year, the new Jetta will enter production for the North American market, finally moving to the same MQB platform as the Golf.

Volkswagen has also announced that it will double down on its SUV expansion as part of the Transform 2025+ plan. Initially, the company’s crossover models consisted of only the Touareg and Tiguan; by 2020, that figure will grow to a whopping 19 vehicles, including the new Atlas, Tiguan Allspace and T-Roc.
