Possible rendering of the new VW Smart challenger

Last month we brought you a report that Volkswagen was developing a city car to challenge the Smart ForTwo. At the time it was reported that the new car would be smaller than the current Fox but would still be a four seater. Now Auto-Bild has rendering of what the new car look like. Like the Smart, the "Lupo II" would appear to be rear engined, but would be about 11.5 ft long. The base version would be stripped down, but all kinds of extra features would be incorporated via modular production techniques to keep the manufacturing cost down. Presumably, a diesel version will be available as well.
