One of the premieres is a fascinating open-top T-Cross Breeze concept car. The concept marks the start of a broad SUV offensive by Volkswagen. A new up! will also be unveiled in Geneva and will boast a thrilling array of innovative features.
The trendy concept car T-Cross Breeze is the most compact sports utility vehicle by Volkswagen. The concept is the first open-top SUV of its class and even has raised seating position for visibility. The T-Cross Breeze concept contains many vehicle controls.
Dr. Herbert Diess is the Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management. According to Diess, 2016 is a year of new beginnings for Volkswagen.
Herbert Diess: “At the moment the T-Cross Breeze is purely a concept, but we can well imagine putting such a convertible on the market as a production model. This is an affordable fun car that is also entirely suitable for everyday use—it’s a genuine ‘People’s Car’.”
The introduction of the T-Cross by VW is a look ahead of the models to come in the future. Volkswagen will be significantly developing their range of SUVs and offer an SUV in every core segment.
Volkswagen will also introduce a new version of the up! in the small car segment at the Swiss convention. The new up! will offer the choice between a petrol, natural gas or electric engine versions.
The new up! will have a top speed of 66 kW / 90 PS. The all-new up! will also come with smartphone integration. Most importantly the new up! will have a new music system. The system will be called 'up! beats' and has been tuned by BeatsAudio.
Klaus Bischoff, Head of Design for the Volkswagen Brand, explains: “The T-Cross Breeze is a teaser for the most compact sport utility vehicle that Volkswagen plans to make – and the nucleus of a new SUV and convertible design in the compact sector.”
“The T-Cross Breeze reflects the new start for our brand”, adds Bischoff. “We want to stir enthusiasm for ‘New Volkswagen’. In this instance we are doing that with an unprecedented vehicle concept in this class; a completely redesigned cockpit and design that is equally crisp and expressive.”
