India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross - What we know so far

India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross - What we know so far

The Volkswagen Polo based T-Cross SUV has been spied testing in the snow. This will be a first time addition to the latest generation Polo family. Interestingly, not only will this car be launched in India, but it will also be manufactured here, probably for a majority of RHD markets across the world.

These first ever spy shots play out what we expected which is that the production version of the T-Cross will follow the VW family design. However, in the larger scheme of things, this car will look like the VW T-Roc and probably have the same design elements but in a scaled down form to match the position of the vehicle in the VW hierarchy.

The test mule has the front and rear covered indicating that the automaker is using the same doors and roof section as the standard Polo. Of course, this being an SUV, VW has added the roof rails to improve the look of the vehicle.
We initially thought that it will carry the latest generation Polo face but since VW already has the Cross Polo for this purpose, the T-Cross will look different. Other than some major exterior changes, this T-Cross is expected to remain exactly the same as the latest generation Polo underneath. This means it will make use of the MQB-A platform, engine options and cabin design too.

As we have said earlier, this car is India-bound and will be a major part of the automaker’s plans for India which, like the European car markets, is going through an SUV craze. It is expected to be a compact SUV and will compete against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra TUV300, Honda WR-V, Tata Nexon and the Ford EcoSport.
