Default 2019 Volkswagen T-Cross

I swear that there has been a thread with spyshots regarding the smallest MQB (Polo) based SUC in VW's lineup, but it doesn't show up currently in search or the listing.

So, here is the first teaser.

https://www.carscoops.com/2018/07/vw...y-t-cross-suv/



Looks pretty much like a firts gen. Tiguan with a full width rear LED strip form Audi. hardly ground breaking or exciting, but it will sell (though, given the density of VAG's SUV/CUV lineup, I guess it will mostly cannibalize existing models)

It at least looks a bit SUVish unlike the sister model SEAT Arona, which looks, no IS a lifted up Ibiza (uses the same doors etc.)
As you said, this will sell very well, even if I don't see the necessity to have an CUV/SUV every 10-15cm in their model range, either this is too large or the T-Roc too small.

There are two other sketches on Autobild:

I agree, it looks more SUVish than most current VAG cross overs (as I said, it reminds me of the first gen. Tiguan); The Seat is indeed weirdly looking like an Ibiza with a higher roof and not so much like a cross over, but to me the T_Roc is also - especially in the actually bets selling, small alloys or hubcaps and one color for body and roof base to mid trim versions more hatchback than CUV, this as a result looks more "truckish", and dare I say larger (despite we know it isn't).

I'm wondering what the inside will be like, the T-Roc already uses pretty much the Polo's inside (though skipping the highe rPolo trim's soft touch dash for a hard plastic one form base Polos), I wonder how much below that not so expensive feeling T-Roc interior they'll dare to go with this....

This is smaller (slightly), despite being based of the same platform. But MQB gave birth to already 7.839 SUVs (an estimate), and certainly will give birth to more. As said, SUVs/CUVs are the thing that sell, but I guess we have reached the model line up density (and Skoda and Seat producing mostly identical vehicles as as well doesn't help either), where adding one just adds cannibalization..

This NEEDS to come to NA. Easily the best looking in it's class (in the affordable market anyway, the XC40 wears the crown overall.)
