Our spy professional photographers have actually captured the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV screening, disguised by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be roughly Polo-sized, is reportedly among 19 new models set to join the VW line-up by 2020, and must be offered in the UK in a variety of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s child SUV guarantees chunky, SUV styling wrapped up in a pretty little package. Under the front-end camouflage, we can see a grille and lights similar to other VW SUVs, including the T-Roc and the T-Cross Breeze convertible SUV idea (revealed listed below). It’ll follow VW’s current attempts to cheer the styling up and interest a more youthful audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look small and narrow– just like those fitted to the Polo and SEAT Ibiza. This will help the T-Cross look larger and larger than it is. To make sure there’s still adequate space in between the front and rear wheels for two sets of doors, VW has actually placed the T-Cross’ wheels as near to the corners as possible– just like on the Up.
2019 VW T-Cross Interior
The T-Cross is more than likely to share most of its interior with the T-Roc and Polo. A large 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 some of the company’s larger models. Mobile phone mirroring will be included on a lot of versions, but a digital driver’s screen will probably cost additional on all however 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 probably use about as much rear legroom as the Polo, the boot will be much bigger thanks to the square, high style.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW established a range 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 begin with a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre engine with 75hp, which is only best if you invest 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 better for a mix of freeway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel engine will be your best option for regular freeway journeys.
In time, expect hybrid and (possibly) fully electrical versions to arrive. Batteries and technology from the e-Up must be fitted, with a boost in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW might likewise develop 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 launched by 2020, which suggests it’ll be officially revealed in the first half of 2019, prior to going on sale either later that year or at the start of 2020. Anticipate to pay from ₤ 15,000 for an entry-level car.
