To No One’s Surprise, VW T-Cross Gets The Virtual GTI Treatment

As their smallest and most affordable crossover, the T-Cross is ready to start printing money for Volkswagen.

Pricing will be announced in due course, but it will cost more than the platform-sharing Polo and less than the T-Roc, with high-end models expected to dive into the €20,000+ (equal to $22,785+) territory.

Opting for the range-topping version of the T-Cross will get you a 150 PS (148 hp / 110 kW) 1.5-liter petrol engine with front-wheel drive (VW’s 4Motion all-wheel drive system won’t be available at all).

The range will likely be expanded with a few additional engines and probably some special editions, though right now there’s no info on what VW has in store for its smallest crossover.

Nonetheless, XTomi has rendered the T-Cross as the GTI that, in all likelihood, will never happen. It’s wearing a Polo GTI-inspired body kit, complete with identical wheels, lower ground clearance and GTI badges adorning the front fenders and grille.

If it ever came to fruition, such a model would require a sportier chassis and, probably, the 2.0-liter four-banger that powers the Polo GTI.

In the hot hatch, it produces 200 PS (197 hp / 147 kW) and 320 Nm (236 lb-ft) of torque, and is mated to either a six-speed DSG or a manual gearbox, with the latter being available as an optional extra.
