Volkswagen Polo-based T-Cross SUV spied undisguised

Volkswagen AG, through its subsidiary Skoda Auto India, had recently announced its elaborate India 2.0 plan for the country. Under this plan, a major part is the VW MQB-A0-IN small car platform. The first car we can expect from this platform will be a small Skoda SUV by 2020. Now, the Volkswagen T-Cross SUV, underpinned by a European version of the MQB-A0 platform, has just been spotted completely undisguised. It shows us the shape of things to come. The VW T-Cross SUV may spurn a smaller sub-4m version for India as well. This may also suggest, more or less, the basic design outline for the upcoming Skoda SUV.

The test mule of the T-Cross SUV features stickers for the front and rear lamps, as well as some other details including the garnish on the bash plates. However, the stickers indicate a design that appears close to the T-Cross Breeze convertible concept showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The T-Cross SUV also retains a strong resemblance to its larger stablemates, the Tiguan and new Touareg.

And while the T-Cross will be the entry SUV for the VW brand, it is more than just a crossover version of the Polo hatchback. It has a squared-off look but elements such as the connected tail lamp from the concept may or may not make it to the production version. But with the flexible MQB-A0 platform, the T-Cross will have the option of various engines, at least in the international markets.

While the T-Cross will be officially revealed in production form later this year, the Indian version with a sub-4m length can be expected by 2019-20. It will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, and the Ford EcoSport here, apart from the recently spied Hyundai QXi SUV.
