VOLKSWAGEN has released details of a brand new model for its line-up, the VW T-Cross. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
What is the Volkswagen T-Cross?
The Volkswagen T-Cross is the most compact SUV that Volkswagen makes; it’s roughly the same size as the Polo hatchback. Despite its size, Volkswagen insists the T-Cross is a spacious little crossover, with enough room to seat five adults and a boot size of up to 455 litres with the rear seats in place.
What engines will the Volkswagen T-Cross come with?
More engines will be added eventually, but the Volkswagen T-Cross will initially only have a 94bhp or 113bhp 1-litre petrol to choose from. The least powerful option will only come with a five-speed manual transmission, whereas buyers who go for the punchier engine can choose from either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic.
Will there be a hybrid model?
At the moment, a hybrid Volkswagen T-Cross doesn’t appear to be in the pipeline.
What tech does the Volkswagen T-Cross have?
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. Entry level cars, though, won’t have air conditioning as standard.
When will the Volkswagen T-Cross go on sale?
The new Volkswagen T-Cross is slated to go on sale during Spring 2019. A more concrete release date will be revealed closer to launch.
How much will the Volkswagen T-Cross cost?
Like the release date, Volkswagen T-Cross prices haven’t been confirmed yet. It’s expected that prices will start at about £17,000, and order books will open in early 2019.
What are the Volkswagen T-Cross’ rivals?
The Volkswagen T-Cross will have plenty of competition when it goes on sale next year. As well as established cars such as the Seat Arona, Citroen C3 Aircross and Hyundai Kona, newly-announced rivals like the DS 3 Crossback will also be available in Spring 2019.
