Volkswagen T-Cross and Vento
Volkswagen have revealed their plans for a new SUV, the T-Cross, a new entry-level crossover positioned below the T-Roc.
The new T-Cross will be based on the MQB platform, which should allow for a more spacious cabin and also pack a range of innovative safety features. The T-Cross will be the next SUV in the VW stable following the T-Roc, Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace, and the new Touareg. The new T-Cross should be launched in India, China, and South America. Volkswagen recently announced their plan to develop the MQB-A0 platform in India with Škoda. We may expect the T-Cross to eventually be built here.
Certain global markets, such as Brazil, have seen the introduction of the latest MQBbased derivative of the Vento, the Virtus. The Virtus is a sedan based on the new Polo and features a revised powertrain and improved interior over the current Polo and Vento on sale in India. With Volkswagen’s expansion plans in India including the MQB-A0 platform, we may expect some new models as well.
