The little SUV is coming this week, but here’s one more teaser in the meantime.
Volkswagen has continued its long, drawn-out T-Cross tease, ahead of the car’s official reveal on October 25.
The latest teaser video previews the compact SUV’s lights and exterior design, revealing the shape of the head- and tail-lights, along with some of the LED detailing.
Down back, the lights are linked by an LED strip across the tailgate, and feature a prominent c-shaped graphic. There are square(ish) fog lights set low in the front bumper, while the headlights and grille appear to offer a shrunken take on the new Touareg’s snout.
In a decidedly un-Volkswagen move, you’ll be able to spec the T-Cross with coloured wheel inserts to match the exterior.
Behind the wheel, the T-Cross appears to have its roots in the Polo’s design, with low-set air vents sitting beneath a central touchscreen. The steering wheel is a new design, and the outboard air vents appear to have a unique look compared to other models in the VW stable.
Thanks to previous teasers, we know the sliding rear bench opens the door for 455L of boot space with the second row in place, and 1281L with them folded. The passenger backrest also folds flat, opening the door for longer items that otherwise wouldn’t fit into a compact SUV.
Volkswagen has been playing a very, very long game with its T-Cross reveal, having previously unveiled a production car covered in camouflage. It’ll measure 4107mm long and 1558mm tall, making it shorter than the T-Roc with which it shares its MQB-A0 underpinnings, but taller for more headroom.
Power will come from a range of three turbocharged petrol engines with power outputs of 70kW, 85kW and 110kW, along with a 70kW turbo-diesel. It will be front-wheel drive only.
