Volkswagen T-Cross New Teaser Focuses On Practicality

Volkswagen continues to drop teasers of its upcoming upcoming T-Cross small SUV, with the latest one focusing on practicality.

Slotting under the T-Roc in VW’s range, and pitted against other subcompact SUVs such as the Renault Captur, Nissan Juke, Opel/Vauxhall Mokka X and Peugeot 2008, the T-Cross has 385lt (13.6cu-ft) of boot space.

Thanks to the adjustable rear seat, however, which slides back and forth, the luggage compartment can be increased to 455lt (16.1cu-ft). Folding the rear backseat down creates a flat loading area and up to 1,281lt (45.2cu-ft) of space, which should be more than enough for users; plus, if necessary, the front passenger seat can be folded, too.

Also Watch: Is The Volkswagen T-Roc As Good As They Say?

The elevated seating position of 597mm (23.5in) at the front and 651mm (25.6in) at the rear gives occupants a clear view of the road ahead.

Billed as “one of the safest cars in its class”, the T-Cross rides on the MQB platform, which allows it to adopt a wide number of engines from the Volkswagen Group. These will likely include at least three different petrol units, with 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 liters in displacement, and 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesels.

The Volkswagen T-Cross will be officially presented to the public this fall at a standalone event, as the company chose not to attend the Paris Auto Show in early October. It will then launch in selected markets next spring.

    Oh look… another crappy cuv… this one brought to you by VW. Blah…

    I haven’t heard anything about this coming to the US. We know the T-Roc is NOT. There is a bit of space (actually, a lot due to the Tiguan’s overinflated pricing) under the Tiguan.

      It is not coming to the U.S Volkswagen have said it is too small for the market there.

    I like it in a VW kind of way: the design seems to be simple, clean, almost surgical. That rising window line is everywhere nowadays: Megane IV, Picanto, Mercedes GLA, China-only DS6, previous Auris, Fabia, etc…

    I wonder if they would bring out a cross version… ???

    A folding rear bench. Unheard of levels of practicality 😉

    That said, like with the Renault Capture creating this segment in Europe, I fail to see the advantage of sliding rear seats in such a small CUV, you can choose between some and no rear legroom, in which case you could as well just fold down the rear seat if you don’t need the rear seat and want more trunk space, unlike in larger cars where this actually gives a choice between a certain split of trunk/actual passenger space…

    Only practical application of a sliding rera bench in a small car I remeber was the first Renault twingo, where you could eliminate the boot but then carry comfortably 4 1,95m adults in a car the smaller than a fiat 500.
