Volkswagen rolls out its all-new T-Cross at the 2019 Shanghai Motor Show. Automotive companies all the world are increasing the strength of their fleet in the Mid-range SUV sector. Hyundai’s Venue, MG Hector, and many to line up. There are many other factors that influence the companies to come up to introduce their SUV versions. We must not forget the response they get in the Indian sector too.
Interestingly, The model present in the Shanghai show has little tweaks all around it. Surely, the front face comes from the VW Tiguan and it is more massive now. The front face has an additional chrome finish at the bottom highlighting the fog lights. T-Cross comes as the small brother of the Tiguan but the touch-ups are growing more. Starting from the Touareg, Tiguan and now the T-Cross stand on the same platform but still come with additional touch-ups than their big brother.
The European version comes with a 2651mm long wheelbase (i.e.) 10mm more than the previous one. The side profile, however, comes with a sporty version with a sloping body and shoulder line. The wheel arches are blackened and there is a sloping roof giving a premium SUV look. On the other hand, the rear is the same. There is a huge black glossy link between the taillights and there is also chrome finish at the back bumper.
Coming to the interiors, there is more of a sports touch to it. There is a body colored dashboard that runs a bit high. The seats from that a sports car with high shoulder and headrest. The remaining features are the same but we cannot confirm unless the production versions in there.
There will be a 1.5L four-cylinder TSI petrol engine with a 7-speed gearbox that’s a dual-clutch automatic one. There is also a new feature of cylinder deactivation technology (fuel efficiency). The car is set to hit the production sometime in 2020 or 2021. There can be a price range of 6.69L to 7.05L (Ex-Showroom PAN India).
