Bound Volkswagen T-Cross Revealed - To Rival The Hyundai Creta

VW says half its sales by 2025 will be SUVs, and it plans 30 models - Autoblog Volkswagen T-Cross 2019 launch live stream - How to watch new VW SUV unveiling NOW

The T-Cross comes with black interiors.

The front-wheel drive T-Cross is based on Volkswagen's MQB-AO platform - as used by the Polo and other recently introduced compact SUV models from the Volkswagen Group, including the Seat Arona and Skoda Karoq.

VOLKSWAGEN has released details of a brand new model for its line-up, the VW T-Cross.

The face of the T-Cross gets wider wraparound headlamps and grille. The vehicle was about 54 millimetres longer than the hatchback Polo, a crossover sharing the same chassis, but 12 inches shorter than the model T-Roc and nearly 38 inches less than "Tiguan". The rear receives a sloping tailgate that opens at bumper level together with a full-width reflector set within the tail lamps and chromed T-Cross identification. The styling makes it look like a smaller version of the VW T-Roc. The T-Cross is 127mm shorter than the T-Roc, which is broadly similar in size to a Golf. In China the new Touareg is celebrating its world premiere, accompanied by two future SUVs for that region: the Powerful Family SUV Tharu and the Advanced Midsize SUV Tayron. Like the concept, it gets hexagonal-shaped AC vents, a steering wheel with audio controls and an octagonal horn pad. The SUV will also get VW's 10.25-inch all-digital instrument cluster called the Active Info Display.

No performance or economy stats have been unveiled just yet, but Volkswagen says all engines comply with the latest Euro 6d-Temp regulations for carbon dioxide and particulate emissions. The top model is the 1.5 TSI four-cylinder engine with 110kW. Transmission is handled by a choice between a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed direct-shift gearbox (DSG). After all, as Volkswagen said in a statement on Thursday, the automaker expects fully half of its sales will "probably be an SUV" by 2025.

New Macs might be coming next week based on Apple EEC filing
Apple is holding a major keynote in NY on Tuesday and rumours suggest a new cheaper laptop could be top of the agenda. According to the Bloomberg report , the new Mac Mini will get new processors and features for professional users.


What engines will the Volkswagen T-Cross come with?

Available infotainment and connectivity solutions will include wireless smartphone charging, up to four USB ports, and a touchscreen navigation system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Despite being a small SUV, the Volkswagen T-Cross has a good amount equipment as standard, with safety tech highlights including lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring.

At the moment, a hybrid Volkswagen T-Cross doesn't appear to be in the pipeline.
