Volkswagen has revealed the first interior renderings of their upcoming T-Cross SUV. The company has been testing the new T-Cross SUV globally, for a while now.
The Volkswagen T-Cross SUV as seen from the interior sketch will feature a similar dashboard to the latest-gen Polo hatchback available in the international markets. The dashboard features a simple design with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system at its centre.
The SUV will also offer an optional interior package, allowing customers to select colour-coded accents for the dashboard and the centre console. The Volkswagen T-Cross is also expected to feature a 10.25-inch instrument display on the higher-spec variants, while the lower-spec will come with traditional analogue gauges.
The Volkswagen T-Cross will be available in two versions globally; a standard Euro-spec and another for emerging markets. The second version is expected to be slightly longer, with a more upright design. This version will be available in emerging markets such as China, South America and India.
The India-bound spec will feature a more SUV-like rear styling with longer rear doors. This is in comparison to the Euro-spec which will get a sloping and rounded-off design. The model will come with the underpinnings of the MQB AO platform.
The Volkswagen T-Cross SUV is said to have its global premiere at the upcoming Sao Paulo Motor Show in November, later this year.
India, however, will get a derivative of the T-Cross first from Skoda. The new Skoda SUV, as reported earlier will also be part of the MQB AO platform.
The Skoda SUV though will have its own identity, borrowing design cues from the Vision X SUV concept showcased earlier this year. It will also share certain body panels with the T-Cross.
Both new SUVsare expected to be powered by the same engine. This includes a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine producing around 115bhp.
Thoughts On The Volkswagen T-Cross SUV
The Volkswagen T-Cross SUVwill be over the four-metre mark in its Indian-spec version. Once launched, the T-Cross will rival the likes of the Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur and the upcoming Tata Harrier. However, the Volkswagen T-Cross is expected to be introduced in India, sometime after 2020.
