India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross spotted attacking the Nurburgring

India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross spotted attacking the Nurburgring

-    The India-spec version of the T-Cross will arrive as a part of India 2.0 plan.

-    Internationally, the T-Cross is based on the new-gen Polo.

-    The sub-compact crossover is expected to be revealed later this year.

Volkswagen plans to have a crossover/SUV in each segment that exists. The German giant has already revealed the new-gen Touareg flagship apart from the cheeky new T-Roc. Now, an all-new T-Cross is already under development which will be based on the Polo hatchback. The test mule of the T-Cross has shed some cladding and was spotted on the Nurburgring for some dynamic testing. 

The T-Cross will be Volkswagen version of the recently introduced Seat Arona. It will be the most affordable crossover in Volkswagen line-up. It will be the entry-level crossover until the Up-based crossover arrives in coming few years. The design will be similar to the larger T-Roc with borrowed cues from the hatchback it will be based upon. So we expect a characteristic horizontal grille under the cladding. At the rear will be newly designed taillights similar to the T-Roc.

Based on the same versatile MQB platform, the T-Cross will, however, measure around the same as the Golf and be positioned between the supermini and the T-Roc. It will, undoubtedly, be practical, with a decent features list. Powertrain options have not been confirmed yet, but we expect the 1.0-litre three-cylinder along with 1.5-litre petrol motor. The diesel could be the 1.6-litre from the Polo. The front-wheel drive will be standard, but it could also be offered with 4Motion four-wheel-drive system. 

Volkswagen is expected to unveil the T-Cross sometime later this year. The baby crossover is part of the German giant´s onslaught of 19 SUVs, which are all expected to arrive by 2020. It will have to face rivalry from the Hyundai Kona, Toyota C-HR, Nissan Juke, and Jeep Renegade.
