Wolfsburg, Germany - While revealing very little hard detail about the nuts and bolts of the upcoming T-Cross, its most compact crossover yet, Volkswagen has released this video showing how the designers went about fulfilling one of the most import facets of the design brief.
It had to be practical, it had to be safe, it had to be intuitive and it had to be cool.
Practical and safe are the province of the engineers; Volkswagen has lots of experience with that. Intuitive comes down to ergonomics; the designers spent a lot of time wearing augmented reality goggles, sitting in virtual models of the interior, making sure everything was in the right place and worked the right way.
Cool was much more difficult. Cool has to do with shapes, colours and textures; unless your surname is McQueen, cool cannot be measured.
