The firm's smallest SUV will be revealed in full later this week

We've been given our clearest look yet at the upcoming Volkswagen T-Cross compact SUV, with a new video featuring close-up shots of the finished car's styling.

Jürgen Stackmann, Volkswagen's marketing chief, posted a short video on his official Twitter account that showed elements of the crossover's exterior and interior styling. The T-Cross will be revealed in full on Thursday (25 October).

Volkswagen Up GTI demand has exceeded expectations

The T-Cross will not get a GTI variant, with VW having previously said the badge will only be used on its Up, Polo and Golf hatchbacks.

A harder R version is more likely, but a decision will be based on the success of the larger T-Roc R arriving next year.

VW design chief Klaus Bischoff told Autocar recently that the T-Cross’s design had already been signed off and was “not so far from the [T-Cross Breeze] concept”, albeit without its drop-top.

Between a t-roc and a hard place.

Autocar writes: "The T-Cross focuses on practicality, according to another preview revealed by VW, with 385-455 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place, depending on their position".

Like others, I'm struggling to see the difference between the two cars. I assume one difference between the T-Roc and T-Cross is the rear seats slide / are adjustable in the latter car but, when you consider the T-Roc's boot is 445L (392l on 4wd version)...  How can you say one car is bigger than the other?

Is it not the case a T-Cross is a T-Roc with different trim / specs?

To carry the top window trim

To carry the top window trim across and down the rear side of the C-pillar is a Vauxhall signature. Am surprised it appears in this T-Cross.

Even not worrying about precedence, does this detail work on this car? I don't think so. With the bottom window trim stopping in front of the C-pillar, the function of the window trim has become a conceptual mess. But if the bottom window trim continued on to the rear of the C-pillar to meet the top trim, this would make a visual mess. Either way the idea doesn't work. 

These days VW models are really running out of ideas. Let's hope the Skoda & Seat versions are better.

The top window trim

is silver tape and won't be on the final car. It won't make it look any prettier mind.

The T-Cross focuses on practically

What. A tiny car like that?  Are they kidding?
