At Geneva,Volkswagen showed the T-Cross Brezze concept, a convertible version of the Polo-based compact SUV that it wants to build for markets around the world. India is also expected to soon get the T-Cross compact SUV, which will take on the likes of the Hyundai and the Renault Duster. A beautiful render on how the T-Cross compact SUV could look like when put into production has hit the interweb. Here it is.
Illustrator Jan Kamenistiak is the man behind this render. As the render shows, the compact SUV has the typical Volkswagen front face, tall wheels and a raised stance. The T-Cross sit on the MQB platform, which it’ll share with the upcoming, all-new 2017 Polo hatchback. 1 liter-3 cylinder turbo petrol and 1.5 liter-4 cylinder turbo diesel engines are expected to power this SUV, which could get 5 speed manual and 7 speed twin clutch DSG automatic gearboxes.
Unlike the concept, the production version of the T-Cross is expected to get a more conventional 5 door layout. It’s also expected to lose the tall wheels and low profile tyres for smaller wheels shod with street-spec rubber. The concept measured 4.11 meters in length, which could be carried over to the production version. This slots the T-Cross in Duster-Creta territory. We’ll have to wait and watch if VW makes the India-spec T-Cross duck under the sub-4 meter mark. That, would be something.
