The Volkswagen T-Cross will become the fourth SUV in the car maker’s European line-up when it goes on sale early next year, following its reveal in October.
The supermini-SUV, which Autocar has already driven in prototype form, focuses on practicality, according to a new preview revealed by Volkswagen, with 385-455 litres of bootspace with the rear seats in place, depending on their position, rising to 1281 litres with the rear seats folded. With the seats in place, this space is 33-103 litres larger than the Kia Stonic, and up to 55 litres larger than the Seat Arona's, although with the T-Cross's seats positioned for maximum legroom, 15 litres down on its Seat cousin.
VW's T-Cross will sit below the existing T-Roc, Tiguan and Touareg and, with an expected price above £17,000, rival the Seat Arona, Renault Captur and second generation Nissan Juke. Latest shots show the car in its most undisguised form yet, although some cladding on the front and rear disguises the car as a T-Roc, covering the car's actual features.
