Our spy professional photographers have actually captured the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, camouflaged by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be roughly Polo-sized, is supposedly among 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and ought to be available in the UK in a variety of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s baby SUV assures chunky, SUV styling involved a quite little bundle. 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 idea (shown listed below). It’ll follow VW’s recent attempts to cheer the styling up and attract a more vibrant audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look small and narrow– much like those fitted to the Polo and SEAT Ibiza. This will help the T-Cross look larger and wider than it is. To make sure there’s still adequate space in between the front and rear wheels for 2 sets of doors, VW has placed the T-Cross’ wheels as near 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 dashboard is expected to be rollovered 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. Mobile phone matching will be consisted of on many versions, but a digital motorist’s display screen will probably cost extra on all however top-spec models.
You’ll sit much higher in a T-Cross than in a Polo, which is appealing if you desire a better view of the roadway ahead. While it’ll most likely offer 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 established 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 just 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 pick) will be better for a mix of freeway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel motor will be your best bet for routine motorway trips.
In time, expect hybrid and (perhaps) completely electrical versions to show up. Batteries and technology from the e-Up must be fitted, with an increase in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW might also establish a T-Cross GTI or R variation that might 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, prior to 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.
