SUV is the name of the game and Volkswagen is adding yet another Sport Utility Vehicle to its line up, the Volkswagen T-Cross. This brings the company’s total SUV offering in Europe to five models.
The T-Cross sits below the recently launched T-Roc and will compete against the likes of Citroen C3 Aircross in the small SUV class. The T-Roc, on the other hand, competes in the segment of Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3.
The T-Cross will ride on the group’s MQB platform and will be front-wheel drive only. Measuring at 4,107 mm in length, Volkswagen promises that there will be ample space for all occupants and luggage thanks to the sliding rear seats. Volkswagen intends to launch the baby SUV as one of the safest vehicles in its class that will be equipped with advanced driver assist systems such as Front Assist and Lane Departure Warning System amongst others.
It is not the first time we are hearing of the T-Cross name, as the company has confirmed the model back in 2016. SUV will play an important role in Volkswagen’s growth and sales as they target 40 per cent of all vehicles sold by the company will be SUVs by 2020. Volkswagen is also looking to expand its SUV range to 20 model offerings before 2020 including their first ever convertible SUV, the T-Roc Convertible.
