Have You Heard About the New Volkswagen T-Cross?
New Volkswagen T-Cross
Volkswagen have unveiled new photos of the brand new T-Cross ahead of it going on sale next year. The new small SUV is set to go head-to-head with the likes of the Peugeot 3008 and Citroen C3 Aircross.
Along with the big reveal came a press release… of sorts. Unfortunately, we didn’t actually learn too much from the press release. What we did learn though was the new model will come with automatic emergency braking and a versatile seating layout. The back seats can slide forwards and backwards so you can choose between an extra bit of legroom or extra boot space.
The other news given was that the car is unlikely to feature all wheel drive, instead a two-wheel drive system will be implemented, so running costs should be kept low.
New Volkswagen T-Cross: Styling
The T-Cross is expected to take some ‘chunky’ style tips to give it a bit of attitude and make you look like an urban-warrior as you meander through the city. LED Headlights will surely be an option, with the standard model coming with regular bulbs and the distinctive LED daytime running lights.
Boot space is expected to be remarketing impressive, with space for an extra suitcase comparatively to smaller models like the Polo. A large infotainment screen will also take centre stage with the dashboard whilst it will be kitted out with smartphone connectivity.
New Volkswagen T-Cross: Price
The T-Cross will take its engine range from the Polo so will be made readily available with two 1.0 litre options; one at 95bhp or a slightly punchier 115bhp. A 125bhp 1.4 litre petrol engine will also be made available, while there will also be a 1.6 litre diesel engine that will boast an impressive 70mpg.
We’re expecting the T-Cross to cost in the region of £17,000 with a GTI version anticipated to come in around the £25,000 mark with sales expected to start early in 2019.
