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 reportedly among 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and must be readily available in the UK in a number of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s child SUV guarantees chunky, SUV styling wrapped up in a pretty small bundle. 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 attract a more younger audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look small and narrow– similar to those fitted to the Polo and SEAT Ibiza. This will help the T-Cross look bigger and larger 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 positioned 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 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 rollovered to the new car, and there’ll be coloured inserts throughout to make it far funkier than the staid dashboards fitted to a few of the company’s bigger models. Smart device mirroring will be consisted of on a lot of versions, but a digital chauffeur’s display will most likely 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 offer about as much rear legroom as the Polo, the boot will be much larger thanks to the square, tall style.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW developed a variety of upgraded engines for the Polo, so these will slot under the stubby bonnet of the T-Cross without significant 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 pick) will be better for a mix of freeway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel motor will be your best option for regular motorway journeys.
In time, anticipate hybrid and (potentially) fully electric versions to get here. Batteries and technology from the e-Up ought to be fitted, with an increase in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW may likewise 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 launched by 2020, which recommends it’ll be formally 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.
