2007 Chicago Auto Show Update: New Nissans, Rondo Concept, VW R32
The Chicago Auto Show kicks off next week, but we’ve got some information that just came through the door — well, actually the email inbox — and figured we’d share.
- Nissan will preview its three debuts for the Chicago Auto Show online tomorrow. You’ll find all three 2008 models — Pathfinder, Titan and Armada — on KickingTires at the stroke of midnight EST tonight.
- Kia will debut a concept version of the new Rondo called the Rondo SX, shown here. It’s a sport-tuned version of the small people-hauler. We’re not sure why there’s a need for such a thing, but we were impressed with our glimpse of the Rondo in Detroit. It’s a nifty little utility wagon/van.
- Rumor on the interwebs is that Volkswagen will debut a high-powered version of the Golf/Rabbit, called the R32, stateside. We’re unsure if this will be the current R32 being sold now in Europe or a new version based on the already peppy GTI.
