We know that VW is bringing a new small SUV to America. However, we don't know if it'll be named Tharu (as in other markets) or Tarek. We think it'll be called the latter when it eventually reaches U.S. dealerships in 2021. It'll likely have dimensions similar to its corporate counterpart, the luxury-subcompact Audi Q3, and share mechanical equipment with the size-up Tiguan.
