Volkswagen Teases Top Secret Small SUV: Say Hello To The T-Cross


But will this one come stateside?

When Volkswagen released the all-new T-Roc SUV, we were almost certain it would come to the US. Why not, right? Americans love SUVs and hate hatchbacks, so the T-Roc makes perfect sense. As it turns out, the T-Roc was simply too small to justify its asking price in the US market. Perhaps this is why Volkswagen is releasing another SUV called the T-Cross. So far, we've only seen the T-Cross in convertible concept form, but VW has just just teased its latest SUV with sketches and a few small details about its size.

The T-Cross will ride on VW's MQB platform, and measure 4,107 millimeters (161.69 inches) long. This means it will actually slot below the T-Roc. VW mentions China and South America as potential markets, but it seems like the US may not be in the game plan.

VW says the MQB platform will allow the T-Cross to be extremely practical with rear seats that can be adjusted for more knee room. It will also be one of the safest vehicles in its class with standard front and lane keep assist. VW says the T-Cross will be exclusively front-wheel-drive, and a range of engines borrowed from the Polo will likely be available.
