Volkswagen has released a teaser for its compact SUV concept namely, the T-Cross. The T-Cross concept is scheduled to make its debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show next month. Based on the Polo, the T-Cross concept is reported to be the Volkswagen’s entry level SUV in its product portfolio.
The teaser images reveal half hexagonal shaped DRL signatures in the head lamp cluster, and a single slat grille sitting in between the honey-comb inserts. Down below, the LED fog lamps are enclosed within LED lit borders. Sitting between them is a honey comb air dam and a skid plate further below. Towards the sides, one can notice body cladding all the way from the front bumper through the sides probably till the rear end. The ORVM’s on either sides feature turn indicators as well.
Based on the Polo, the T-Cross will join its older sibling, the T-Roc that is based on the VW golf and is likely to premiere by the end of 2016 in its production form. Both the model are based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and would be offered with an array of engine options. Reports suggest that these power-trains would include petrol, diesel and plug-in petrol-electric hybrid options. These engines would be offered in front wheel drive as well as four wheel drive.
The company had also been planning to launch a smaller model termed the Taigun, but it was later scrapped citing various reasons. The T-Cross is scheduled to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
