Volkswagen T-Cross teased

Volkswagen has released a teaser video and photo, detailing its forthcoming MQB-based baby SUV.
The Volkswagen T-Cross is expected to be fully revealed before the year is out. It'll be underpinned by the MQB platform, the same one as the latest generation Polo. Inspired by the radical T-Cross concept which was first shown at the 2016 Paris Auto Show, the Volkswagen T-Cross will be the Germans' smallest SUV.

We expect an array of compact engines for the Volkswagen T-Cross. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol motor from the Polo is expected to be carried over and the well-used 1.4 TFSI motor could also make an introduction. We wouldn't put it past Volkswagen to throw in the new 2.0 132kW motor either. We first experienced this engine in the Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace and we think its a better fit in the smaller SUV. As always, you'll have a choice of either a manual or DSG transmission.

The big news is that Volkswagen South Africa confirmed that T-Cross will be coming to our shores. We'll have more info when the vehicle is fully revealed.
