In 2015, Volkswagen has announced an SUV onslaught and said that it would have a high riding vehicle in every part of the market that it exists in. The plans are a bit streamlined for India and here VW introduce one major SUV which is the T-Cross. It’s based on the next-generation Polo hatchback and will be slotted into a position above the next generation Vento.

Leaked images show that the production version of the T-Cross picked up its design cues off the larger Golf based T-Roc. In profile, you can see the same lines thanks to the wraparound tail lamps and heavily flared wheel arches. However, the T-Cross gets a slightly different face to separate it from the Polo and at the same time, also gives it the VW SUV identity. Noticeable elements in the external design include silver coloured bash plates as well as three-slat grille which is the signature of the VW SUV identity.

The cabin is standard VW fare and all the trim bits, layout and even the features list, look very similar to what one would find in the next-gen Polo. However, some higher spec models of the T-Cross will get the virtual cockpit option that had debuted with the facelifted Golf in 2017.

The T-Cross is expected to be offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines in the capacity of 1.0-litre to 1.6-litre across both petrol and diesel options. A T-Cross hybrid is also in the pipeline which will see the light of day in 2018 and be powered by the same setup in the soon-to-be-launched Polo hybrid.

This is an India-bound car and will be VW’s answer to the likes of the Jeep Compass, Renault Captur, Hyundai Tucson as well as the sedans like the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla and the Hyundai Elantra. This is an important car for Volkswagen as it will allow them to tap into the rapidly growing D-segment SUV market. However, this car will not replace the Jetta, but rather sell alongside the sedan.
