Exclamation 2019 Volkswagen T-Cross

Reveal on how live for those interested.

So apparently no AWD according to carscoops? MQB A0 platform. Early next year sales.

The fact that they don't see a market for this in the U.S. is laughable.

Wait so what's the small SUV from VW that North America IS getting?

Not surprised we don't get this since we also don't get the Polo (unfortunately).

This should replace the Golf in the USA. The Golf is a mediocre seller here.

This is much much smaller than the Golf, VW polo sized, the T-Roc is much closer in size to the Golf. The T cross would be too small for the US market.

It's like an EcoSport and a Lynk and Co 02 had a child....

Umm...no it wouldn't. The Ecosport is tiny and it's not alone. The reason this isn't coming to the USA is that VW (a mainstream brand) cannot figure out how to do anything other than premium pricing. This would probably be a $30K vehicle when all is said and done rather than a $24K loaded kind of car.

This looks pretty neat, and I think it would find a niche in the US so it's too bad it's not coming here. That said I'm pretty sure this is even smaller than the EcoSport...
