Volkswagen's SUV lineup currently includes the Touareg, Tiguan, and T-Roc, and from 2018, it will reportedly welcome a fourth member, the small T-Cross.
AutoExpress says that the subcompact vehicle will adopt a rather conservative styling, inspired by the T-Roc up to a point, in addition to an increased ride that will differentiate it from the Polo, which shares the same platform.
Looking to throw the ball into Nissan's backyard by challenging the likes of the Juke, among a variety of other vehicles offered in the segment by different automakers, the Volkswagen T-Cross (name unconfirmed) will also share a thing or two with the Seat Arona.
Chances are that it will benefit from a range of three- and four-cylinder petrol (and probably diesel) engines, with the range kicking off with the 1.0-liter three-banger that makes 109hp. Lesser models will have to make due with a manual gearbox, while more expensive versions will benefit from dual-clutch automatics.
Volkswagen could offer at least one all-wheel drive option to the T-Cross, thus making it more appealing to customers living in colder, snow-ridden climates.
