Our spy professional photographers have actually captured the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, disguised by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be roughly Polo-sized, is apparently among 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and need to be offered in the UK in a number of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s baby SUV assures chunky, SUV styling wrapped up in a quite little plan. Under the front-end camouflage, we can see a grille and lights just like other VW SUVs, consisting of the T-Roc and the T-Cross Breeze convertible SUV idea (shown below). It’ll follow VW’s current efforts to cheer the styling up and interest a more youthful 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 bigger and broader than it is. To make sure there’s still enough area in between the front and rear wheels for 2 sets of doors, VW has actually placed the T-Cross’ wheels as near to the corners as possible– similar to on the Up.
2019 VW T-Cross Interior
The T-Cross is more than most likely to share the majority of its interior with the T-Roc and Polo. A big infotainment screen in the centre of the dashboard is expected to be carried over to the new car, and there’ll be coloured inserts throughout to make it far funkier than the staid control panels fitted to a few of the company’s bigger models. Mobile phone matching will be included on many versions, however a digital driver’s screen will probably cost additional on all but top-spec models.
You’ll sit much greater in a T-Cross than in a Polo, which is appealing if you desire a much better view of the roadway ahead. While it’ll most likely provide about as much rear legroom as the Polo, the boot will be much bigger thanks to the square, high design.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW developed a variety of updated engines for the Polo, so these will slot under the stubby bonnet of the T-Cross without significant changes. The line-up will kick off with a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre engine with 75hp, which is just best if you spend most of your time in a city. Another 1.0-litre three-cylinder with 95hp or 115hp (depending on the model you select) will be better for a mix of motorway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel engine will be your best choice for regular freeway journeys.
In time, expect hybrid and (possibly) totally electrical 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 also develop a T-Cross GTI or R version that could share the Polo GTI’s 200hp 2.0-litre turbo engine and dual-clutch gearbox.
2019 VW T-Cross Price and Release Date
The T-Cross will apparently be one of 19 new VW SUVs released by 2020, which suggests it’ll be officially exposed in the 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.
