2019 VW T-Cross
Our spy photographers have caught the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV testing, camouflaged by less camouflage than ever. The SUV, which will be approximately Polo-sized, is supposedly among 19 new models set to join 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 child SUV assures chunky, SUV styling involved a pretty little package. Under the front-end camouflage, we can see a grille and lights much like other VW SUVs, consisting of the T-Roc and the T-Cross Breeze convertible SUV idea (shown below). It’ll follow VW’s recent attempts to liven the styling up and attract a more youthful audience.
Around the back, the LED tail lights look small 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 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 large infotainment screen in the centre of the dashboard is anticipated to be carried over to the new car, and there’ll be coloured inserts throughout to make it far funkier than the staid dashboards fitted to some of the company’s bigger models. Smart device matching will be included on the majority of versions, however a digital chauffeur’s screen will probably cost additional on all but top-spec models.
You’ll sit much greater in a T-Cross than in a Polo, which is appealing if you want a better view of the road ahead. While it’ll probably offer about as much rear legroom as the Polo, the boot will be much larger thanks to the square, high style.
2019 VW T-Cross Engines and Driving
VW developed a range of updated 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 spend 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 better for a mix of motorway and town driving while a 1.6-litre 95hp diesel engine will be your best bet for routine motorway trips.
In time, expect hybrid and (perhaps) completely electric versions to arrive. Batteries and technology from the e-Up ought 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 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 among 19 new VW SUVs launched by 2020, which recommends it’ll be formally exposed in the very 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.
