Our spy photographers have actually recorded the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, disguised by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be approximately Polo-sized, is reportedly one of 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and need to be readily available in the UK in a variety of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s child SUV promises chunky, SUV styling wrapped up in a pretty little plan. Under the front-end camouflage, we can see a grille and lights just like other VW SUVs, including the T-Roc and the T-Cross Breeze convertible SUV principle (shown below). It’ll follow VW’s recent efforts to liven the styling up and interest a more younger audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look little and narrow– much like those fitted to the Polo and SEAT Ibiza. This will assist the T-Cross appearance larger and broader than it is. To make sure there’s still enough area in between the front and rear wheels for two sets of doors, VW has actually positioned the T-Cross’ wheels as near to the corners as possible– much like on the Up.
2019 VW T-Cross Interior
The T-Cross is more than most likely to share most of its interior with the T-Roc and Polo. A big infotainment screen in the centre of the control panel 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 larger models. Smart device mirroring will be included on a lot of versions, but a digital motorist’s display screen will probably cost additional on all but top-spec models.
You’ll sit much higher 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, tall design.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW established a variety of upgraded engines for the Polo, so these will slot under the stubby bonnet of the T-Cross without major changes. The line-up will start 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 upon the model you select) will be better for a mix of motorway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel motor will be your best bet for routine motorway trips.
In time, anticipate hybrid and (possibly) totally electric versions to show up. Batteries and technology from the e-Up need to be fitted, with a boost in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW may likewise establish a T-Cross GTI or R variation 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 released by 2020, which recommends it’ll be officially revealed 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.
