Volkswagen has presented its
new T-Cross, the company’s first small car SUV. With the T-Cross, Volkswagen
has introduced another new SUV model: even shorter and therefore better suited
to the city than the T–Roc, and even more compact than the Tiguan.
The new T-Cross has a choice
of four turbocharged engines: three petrol and one diesel. The two 1.0 TSI
three-cylinder petrol engines with petrol particulate filter generate 70 kW /
95 PS or 85 kW / 115 PS. The top model is the 1.5 TSI four-cylinder engine with
110 kW / 150 PS. Completing the range is a 1.6 TDI four-cylinder engine with 70
kW / 95 PS. All engines comply with the latest Euro 6d-TEMP emission standard.
Standard equipment for the new
T-Cross includes numerous driver assistance systems which were previously
reserved for higher vehicle classes. Together with the vehicle’s outstanding
crash characteristics and exemplary occupant protection, these increase safety,
reduce the risk of a collision and improve driving comfort. Already included as
standard equipment are the Front Assist area monitoring system with Pedestrian
Monitoring and City Emergency Braking System, the lane keeping assistant Lane
Assist, Hill Start Assist, the proactive occupant protection system, and the
Blind Spot Detection lane change assist system with the integrated Rear Traffic
Alert. Also available as options are the Driver Alert System, automatic
adaptive cruise control and Park Assist.
