The Volkswagen Nivus is a subcompact crossover SUV manufactured by the German automaker Volkswagen. The Nivus was unveiled in May 2020 in Brazil.[1] It is built at the Anchieta plant in São Bernardo do Campo, Brazil alongside the Polo and Virtus, with all three models sharing the Volkswagen Group MQB A0. It would also be launched in Europe and other South American markets in 2021.[2]


The Nivus is closely related with the Mk6 Polo, sharing its side doors, windshield, roof stamping, suspension setup and most interior parts for efficiency and cost-cutting measures.[3] While its fascia is completely redesigned, Volkswagen has also raised the hood which results to a taller presence and to give it a more rugged look compared to the Polo.[4] A completely new C-column stamping and the rear parts of the car allows for a larger trunk space, from 300 litre from the Polo to 415 litre.[5][6] As the result, unlike other subcompact crossover in the market, the Nivus has a low-roof proportion that allows it to be marketed as the coupé crossover alternative to the tall-proportioned T-Cross.

In the interior, the Nivus shared the same dashboard with the European Polo with minimum difference, enables it to look slightly different to the Latin American Polo.

The Nivus will be the first Volkswagen model developed in Brazil that will be produced and sold in the European market. While the Nivus built in Brazil will be exported to markets in Latin America, the crossover will also enter production next year in Pamplona, Spain. According to Volkswagen do Brasil, about 30 people from the Spanish team are involved in the Nivus project and some of them have been visiting the facilities in Brazil to learn more about the development of Nivus before European production begins. Volkswagen claimed Nivus was developed without any physical prototype needed, with designers and engineers using virtual reality and augmented reality instead. As a result, project time was reduced by 10 months with significant cost savings.[7]
