VW T-Sport Inspired By Audi A1 Citycarver Won’t Win Any Beauty Contests

What if Volkswagen decided to build an even smaller high-riding vehicle than the T-Cross? That’s the premise behind this independent design effort that you see here.

Kleber Silva put his editing skills to work and came up with what he calls the VW T-Sport. Inspired by the recently unveiled Audi A1 Citycarver, it brings the company’s distinctive design at the front, enhanced by chrome accents that are part of the digital R design pack. While the front isn’t half bad, the rear design is all messed up.

Now, should Volkswagen make it? Probably not as there are enough small crossovers in the market. Will they make it? Who knows, but there have been talks about such a vehicle in the past; you know, the kind that you have to take with the proverbial pinch of salt. Even if they decide to give it a go, and they have all the tools to do so, the electric era is knocking on their door. Therefore, who knows, maybe it will be able to drive in complete silence.

While a tiny Volkswagen crossover is nothing to write home about, the A1 Citycarver could be, especially for young customers who dig the slightly higher driving position and more utilitarian design. The new Audi will go on sale in August, with pricing and full specs to be announced.
