India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross teased in design sketches

India-bound Volkswagen T-Cross teased in design sketches

-    Volkswagen is set to launch a new crossover based on the new-gen Polo which will be called the T-Cross.

-    It will also make its way to India as a part of a new-generation of VW vehicles in the country.

-    The T-Cross will be based on the MQB platform and will offer both petrol and diesel engine options.

Volkswagen is doing an SUV offensive with no less than 19 new off-roaders coming in next two years. The fourth in line after the Tiguan, T-Roc and the flagship Touareg is the T-Cross. The new baby SUV has been officially teased once again, this time in design sketches.

We know the new crossover will be positioned below the T-Roc. It has now been confirmed that it would borrow its styling from its bigger siblings. So the grille is teased with full-width horizontal louvres, along with sharp creases all around for a subtle overall appearance.  The headlight and taillight design will carry a similar design which will make it difficult to differentiate from the T-Roc. 

The tail light will be one-piece unit running across the tailgate. There will be a two-tone paint scheme for the exterior just like the T-Roc but with a choice of no less than 12 colour options. The same colour theme will be seen inside the cabin as showcased in the new-gen Polo. VW has also confirmed a boot size of 455 litres which can be expanded to 1281litres with the 60:40 seats folded down.  

The upcoming T-Cross is also an important product for Volkswagen India. As a part of the India offensive 2.0 program, VW will position the T-Cross as their foot soldier in the high-selling sub-four metre SUV segment. The T-Cross will adopt a new MQB-A0-IN platform which has been developed specially for India. This will help it cut the overall size to under four metres as compared to international spec’s 4100mm length. Thus the T-Cross will arrive as a direct rival to the segment leader, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.

Volkswagen will reveal the new T-Cross in the international markets in October.  However, we’ll have to wait for another year or two for the T-Cross to be developed, manufactured and sold in India.
