Volkswagen T-Cross 2019: this is officially it
After teasers and carmaker-provided spy shots, meet the new T-Cross
Volkswagen has finally revealed the new T-Cross crossover coming to join the likes of Tiguan, Touareg and T-Roc in Wolfsburg’s SUV lineup.
As things stand, the 2019 T-Cross is the smallest SUV in VW’s range, slotting below the T-Roc. Underpinning it is VW’s MQB architecture shared with the Polo supermini.
The new T-Cross stretches to 4.11 meters with a wheelbase of 2.56 meters, which, says VW’s literature, “is comparatively generous, allowing a spacious interior with enough room for five people.”
On more practical terms, the T-Cross offers between 385 and 455 liters worth of space in the boot, but via the folding rear seat users get a flat loading surface and a cargo volume extended to 1,281 liters.
At launch, customers will be able to pick one of the four turbocharged engines available: three petrols and one diesel.
There’s a 1-liter TSI unit with three cylinders making either 70 kW (95 PS) or 85 kW (115 PS) and the range-topper 1.5-liter TSI four-cylinder good for 110 kW (150 PS) also found inside the T-Roc.
As for diesels, the T-Cross offers just one choice, namely a 1.6-liter TDI four-cylinder unit with 70 kW/95 PS on tap.
Volkswagen is placing great emphasis on the standard safety features available for the T-Cross, which include the likes of Front Assist, Pedestrian Monitoring, City Emergency Braking System, Lane Assist, Hill Start Assist and Blind Spot Detection - which is pretty much what you’d want to have in your urban crossover.
On the tech side, there’s induction charging for smartphones, up to four USB ports as well as other intuitive on-board functions.
