Reports suggest the Polo-based crossover concept will be unveiled in March at Geneva.
VW has reportedly developed a Polo-based crossover concept called the T-Cross. The news comes from Autocar through an anonymous source from within Volkswagen. The T-Cross is ready for the Geneva Motor Show in March.
VW T-Cross would rival the Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke in the compact crossover category. The reports have been confirmed by a high-placed manager anonymous source within Volkswagen.
If the response is good, the production of the T-Cross could even start in 2018. The T-Cross concept would share cues with 2014's Golf-based T-Roc concept in styling.
The styling touches include a wide grille and exaggerated fenders. The T-Cross would also be a CUV ride on the MQB platform. However the upcoming T-Cross concept would be smaller than the T-Roc concept.
The source also claims the VW Group CEO Matthias Müller wants both crossovers on sale. The sale has to take place as soon as possible to take advantage of the strong market.
The source stated they will position production versions of the T-Cross and T-Roc. The position will be underneath the Tiguan and Touareg part of the market. That part of the market has been experiencing large growth for SUV models. Especially and including in Europe.
The current US crossover line-up of Volkswagen only consists of the Touareg and Tiguan. So Volkswagen currently brand lacks a compact entry to take on popular models such as the Buick Encore.
