Our spy professional photographers have caught the upcoming VW T-Cross SUV screening, 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 ought to be offered in the UK in a variety of guises.
2019 VW T-Cross Styling
VW’s infant SUV guarantees chunky, SUV styling involved a pretty little package. 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 principle (revealed listed below). It’ll follow VW’s current efforts to liven the styling up and appeal to a more younger 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 bigger and larger 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 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 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 expected 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. Smartphone matching will be included on the majority of versions, but a digital motorist’s display screen will most likely 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 want a much better view of the road ahead. While it’ll most likely use 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 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 kick off with a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre engine with 75hp, which is just best if you spend the majority 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 bet for routine freeway journeys.
In time, anticipate hybrid and (perhaps) completely electric versions to show up. 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 transmission.

The T-Cross will apparently be among 19 new VW SUVs launched by 2020, which suggests it’ll be officially revealed 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.
