The VW T-Cross is expected to launch in India between late 2020 and early 2021. The SUV is likely to have a high level of localization and this could see the T-Cross being priced between Rs 11 lakh and Rs 15 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Should Volkswagen manage this pricing, the T-Cross will become the brand's first affordable SUV.

Thoughts About The Volkswagen T-Cross

The compact SUV segment is where are the action is and VW is entering the game a little late. The competition is heavy and unforgiving. We hope Volkswagen have brought their A game to the T-Cross. While we're not very impressed about how the T-Cross looks like in the pictures, we know performance will be as efficient as can be. As always, pricing is the most critical factor in Indian markets, and we hope VW are able to achieve this with the localization of the soon to be unveiled and eventually launched T-Cross compact SUV. We wish them all the best!
