India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross: Fresh details emerge

India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross: Fresh details emerge

New details for the India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross have emerged ahead of its anticipated debut in the country sometime late in 2020 or early 2021. The India-spec T-Cross is based on the low-cost MQB AO IN platform instead of the expensive MQB AO platform that underpins the European-spec new Polo. Reports claim that the new model will offer a spacious cabin and will be an affordable model. 

In order to keep the price factor in check, the India-spec model will not be built using expensive hot-stamped steel and will also miss out on the vulcanised rubber bushings in the front anti-roll bar. The company will also skip the sliding second-row bench that offers variable boot space. Mechanically, the India-bound T-Cross will get two petrol engine options. The 128bhp producing 1.5-litre four-cylinder EVO TSI engine will be the major highlight, while the other engine option will include a 1.0-litre three-cylinder TSI engine that produces 113bhp. The SUV will get cylinder-deactivation technology that is expected to deliver around 10 per cent more efficiency.

In terms of dimensions, the upcoming T-Cross is expected to have a wheelbase measuring 2,651mm, which makes it longer than the European-spec model and will also be 90-100mm taller than the international spec model. Moreover, the India-spec model will also offer slightly better ground clearance at 205mm and an India specific suspension setup. 

More details about the vehicle will be divulged closer to its launch. In India, the upcoming Volkswagen T-Cross will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Creta and the Tata Harrier.
