An image of the Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze concept has been leaked onto the internet a day ahead of its official unveiling at the Geneva motor show.

The T-Cross Breeze is based on the Polo and previews a future production model that could arrive on the market in 2018. It'd enter VW's SUV range under a larger SUV, influenced by the T-Roc concept, which would be based on the Golf. Both models would sit below the Tiguan and Tourag.

The arrival of the Breeze suggests Volkswagen wants an offering for the open-top SUV segment, which is currently headed by the more premium Range Rover Evoque convertible. If the convertible model does indeed make production, it could be priced from about £20,000, ranking it alongside SUV models like the Ford Kuga.

More details and pictures will be available when the T-Cross Breeze is officially unveiled tomorrow at 7:20am GMT.

Our Verdict

Volkswagen Polo
The Polo is a polished, mature-feeling, spacious supermini

The fifth-generation Volkswagen Polo has junior Golf looks, but is that enough?

Perfect for enjoying the fragrant waft of NOx particles floating on the breeze.

Listen for the praise and adulation heaped on it, hear the journos salivate and say how attractive and well built it is, and see how the sheep flock to place their orders as it is innovative? And of course built by VW- Then after that sit back and see that these are the same journalists who panned the Land Rover Evoque Convertible- After that just sit back and see why the British motor industry died- Verdict? Cannibalism.....

    Plug-in hybrid Optima is a practical, tax-efficient PHEV that undercuts rivals and fulfils its main remit well, but keen drivers need not apply
  • Kia Optima Sportwagon

    25 August 2016
    New Kia estate looks the part, has good space and handles tidily, but its engine's flexibility and refinement let it down

    24 August 2016
    Awful driving position aside, drop-top Huracán handles UK roads well. It's more dynamically rounded than its rangemates, but lacks rivals' handling bite
