2019 VW T-Cross
Our spy photographers have recorded the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, disguised by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be approximately Polo-sized, is supposedly one of 19 new models set to sign up with the VW line-up by 2020, and should be readily available in the UK in a number of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s baby SUV assures chunky, SUV styling involved a quite small 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 concept (shown below). It’ll follow VW’s recent attempts to cheer the styling up and interest a more youthful 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 wider than it is. To make sure there’s still sufficient space in between the front and rear wheels for two sets of doors, VW has actually placed the T-Cross’ wheels as close to the corners as possible– similar to 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 control panels fitted to some of the company’s larger models. Smartphone matching will be consisted of on many versions, but a digital driver’s display 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 better view of the road ahead. While it’ll probably 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 updated 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 invest most of your time in a city. Another 1.0-litre three-cylinder with 95hp or 115hp (depending upon the model you choose) will be much better for a mix of freeway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel motor will be your best option for regular freeway journeys.
In time, anticipate hybrid and (perhaps) totally electrical versions to get here. Batteries and technology from the e-Up must be fitted, with an increase in power over the compact city car’s 84hp. VW might likewise establish a T-Cross GTI or R version that might share the Polo GTI’s 200hp 2.0-litre turbo engine and dual-clutch transmission.
