Volkswagen has been busy teasing the new T-Cross baby SUV, but now it's officially revealed as VW adds to their range of SUVs with a new model aimed lower down the size scale, and firing a salvo across the bows of the Nissan Juke, Hyundai Kona and any number of other potential rivals.
Unveiled in Europe with no plans for a USA launch, the T-Cross appears to borrow its design language from the larger T-Roc. The architecture is shared with the Volkswagen Virtus sedan (Vento replacement) sold in South American markets. As per the Polo, the 1-litre, three-cylinder TSI turbopetrol is offered in 70kW and 85kW guises, and there's also a four-cylinder 1.5 TSI option with 110kW on tap. Buyers can also opt for a 1.6-liter turbodiesel mill and eventually a 1.5-liter turbo gasoline engine with 148 horsepower.
After a lot of teasing, Volkswagen has launched the T Cross SUV at an event in Amsterdam.
The T-Cross is expected to arrive in India sometime around 2020. The SUV also gets a 1.6-litre turbocharged diesel engine that produces 94bhp.

Looking at the potential victors of the Mexican Grand Prix , Red Bull can surely be counted as a contender alongside Ferrari and Mercedes.
For the versatility in the interior, the sliding rear seat can be adjusted by 14cm, allowing more passenger leg room or more luggage space. Volkswagen will also introduce a 1.5-litre petrol engine.
The T-Cross will be available with a choice of two petrol engines. The front grille gets horizontal slates that extend all the way to the headlamp, fog lamps integrated into the front bumper, prominent wheel arches and fairly deep creases across the car's body. Both use a six-speed manual gearbox as standard but will be available with an optional seven-speed dual-clutch unit.
The base T-Cross is a fairly simple machine with standard features like a radio, height-adjustable driver's seat, and power windows.
In equipping new items include led headlights, electronic instrument panel, multimedia system with 8-inch screen and four USB ports, adaptive cruise, wireless charging for smartphone, 300-watt Beats audio system with eight-channel amplifier, automatic switching beam in the far, tracking the dead zones and rows movement, and the prevention of frontal collisions.
European models have a raft of standard driver assistance gadgets, including Front Assist area monitoring with City Emergency Braking and Pedestrian Monitoring, Rear Traffic Alert and Blind Spot Detection. The T-Cross will not be offered in North America as Volkswagen considers the vehicle to be too small to appeal to American customers. India will first see the launch of the Skoda SUV first, and then the T-Cross.
