Volkswagen has lifted the cover of the New T-Cross SUV. The model was launched simultaneously in Amsterdam, Shanghai and Sao Paulo. T-Cross uses the same platform as polo and has no four-wheel drive system.
In terms of design, the model can be called a combination of Volkswagen’s other SUVs. The car looks like a small Touareg and has a similar front shutters and headlights with this model. The side is reminiscent of Tiguan with strong character lines, while the rear is the most authentic part of the car.
The rear lamps are similar to any other Volkswagen model and are connected by a strip of light that shows the T-Cross wider than it is.
The MQB platform enabled Volkswagen to position the front axle in the future. As a result, the T-Cross has a fairly large wheelbase. The small SUV is 4.11 meters long and 2.56 meters in axle distance.
The car has a spacious interior and has a capacity of five people. The rear seat can be shifted to 140 mm depending on the needs and the leg distance or luggage capacity can be increased.
The luggage capacity ranges from 385 to 455 litres. If this is not enough, the rear seat can be folded up to 1281 litres.
The console is quite different from the Volkswagen Polo, and the steering wheel is also completely new. In addition, some new flooring and color options are offered.
T-Cross also offers Volkswagen’s newest multimedia systems. The car comes with wireless phone charging and four USB ports.
We learned about the engine series during the teaser campaign. T-cross comes with four turbochargers, three of which are gasoline and one is diesel. Two different 1.0-litre TSI three-cylinder engines come with 95 PS (94 bhp) and 115 PS (113 bhp) power output.
The top-level 1.5-litre TSI four-cylinder engine is 150 PS (148 bhp) and the 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine comes with 95 PS (94 bhp) power output. All engines comply with the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emission standards.
Surprisingly, for a small car, the T-Cross comes with numerous standard driving assistance. These include the front area Assist and pedestrian monitor, City Emergency Brake, Lane Assist, Hill departure assist, proactive Passenger Protection System, Blind Spot Detection And Rear Traffic Warning.
Optional driver warning system, automatic adaptive cruise control and Parking Assistant can also be added to the car.
The production of the new VW T-Cross will begin this year in Spain, South America and China. The car will be available in 2019.
