Our spy photographers have recorded the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, camouflaged by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be approximately Polo-sized, is apparently among 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and should be readily available in the UK in a number of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s infant SUV assures chunky, SUV styling involved a pretty little bundle. Under the front-end camouflage, we can see a grille and lights similar to other VW SUVs, consisting of the T-Roc and the T-Cross Breeze convertible SUV concept (revealed below). It’ll follow VW’s current efforts to cheer the styling up and attract a more younger audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look small and narrow– much like those fitted to the Polo and SEAT Ibiza. This will assist the T-Cross look larger and broader than it is. To make sure there’s still sufficient area between the front and rear wheels for two sets of doors, VW has placed the T-Cross’ wheels as close to the corners as possible– just like on the Up.
2019 VW T-Cross Interior
The T-Cross is more than likely to share the majority of its interior with the T-Roc and Polo. A big infotainment screen in the centre of the control panel is anticipated to be rollovered to the new car, and there’ll be coloured inserts throughout to make it far funkier than the staid dashboards fitted to some of the company’s larger models. Smart device matching will be consisted of on many versions, however a digital motorist’s display screen will probably cost additional on all however top-spec models.
You’ll sit much higher in a T-Cross than in a Polo, which is appealing if you want a much better view of the road ahead. While it’ll most likely use about as much rear legroom as the Polo, the boot will be much larger thanks to the square, tall design.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW developed a range of updated engines for the Polo, so these will slot under the stubby bonnet of the T-Cross without major changes. The line-up will begin with a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre engine with 75hp, which is only best if you spend the majority of your time in a city. Another 1.0-litre three-cylinder with 95hp or 115hp (depending on the model you select) will be much better for a mix of freeway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel motor will be your best choice for regular freeway journeys.
In time, expect hybrid and (perhaps) fully electric versions to show up. Batteries and technology from the e-Up must be fitted, with a boost in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW may likewise establish a T-Cross GTI or R version that could share the Polo GTI’s 200hp 2.0-litre turbo engine and dual-clutch transmission.
2019 VW T-Cross Price and Release Date
The T-Cross will apparently be one of 19 new VW SUVs launched by 2020, which recommends it’ll be formally revealed in the very first half of 2019, before going on sale either later on that year or at the start of 2020. Expect to pay from ₤ 15,000 for an entry-level car.
