São Bernardo, Brazil - Volkswagen’s Brazilian division has released fresh teaser images and new information on the company’s forthcoming compact SUV that’s set to be revealed in full on October 25.
Meanwhile VWSA has confirmed to us that the T-Cross is set to be launched in South Africa during the second half of 2019.
Like most modern VWs, the T-Cross will be based on the company’s MQB architecture, although its closest relative is essentially the Polo. It’ll go up against compact SUVs such as the Hyundai Creta and Honda HR-V.
However, the exact size of the T-Cross you purchase will depend on what part of the planet you live on. Brazil, China and other emerging markets will receive a larger version, with a largest-in-class wheelbase of 2651mm - a whole 88mm more than the European version. Boot volume is variable between 373 and 420 litres, says VW Brazil.
We’re currently awaiting confirmation on which version of the T-Cross will come to South Africa.
