The 2017 Volkswagen Saveiro Mini Pickup Truck comes with a 101 horsepower, 1.6-liter engine that makes about 104 lb-ft of torque. The only transmission is a five speed manual. It comes only as a front-wheel drive (FWD) mini truck with either a extended cab, or a full extra cab that can hold a total of five riders.
While there are no plans to sell the Volkswagen Saveiro in the United States, the market for smaller pickup trucks has grown rapidly. As a small urban pickup truck, the Volkswagen Saveiro would have no direct competition. The only FWD pickup truck available in the United States is the much-larger Honda Ridgeline pickup truck.
The 2017 Volkswagen Saveiro Mini Pickup Truck is available in South American markets between (roughly) $7,000 to $10,000. The Volkswagen Saveiro Mini Pickup Truck pictured above is the new “Pepper” model which is a higher trim level that incorporates exterior and interior trim upgrades.
