Default Rumour: Volkswagen T Cross. Compact Crossover based on Polo

With the growth in the C/SUV segment worldwide, VW plans its portfolio.

The entry level Crossover is speculated to be called T Cross and is to be built in its highly flexible MQB platform and based on the next gen Polo.
The car will be in production early 2018. Target markets include China, South America and India considering that the car will measure 4m in length.
The T Cross will rival Nissan’s Juke, Mazda CX-3,etc
There is the possibility that the T-cross will be developed alongside an Audi sibling Q1.

The concept is likely to be shown at the upcoming 2016 Geneva Auto Show.

Moving up the segment will be Volkswagen's next crossover - T ROC. The T Roc will fall and at a length of 4200mm will take on Renault’s Duster, etc.. The concept was revealed at the Geneva Motor show 2014.It is being developed alongside Audi’s Q2 and based on the Golf and its highly flexible MQB platform the crossover is set to debut in early 2017.

Quote:
Styled under the guidance of Volkswagen brand design boss Klaus Bischoff, the T-Cross is expected to borrow elements from the T-Roc, including its full-width grille, side window graphic and distinctive wheel arches, in a bid to provide the two new SUV models with a common lineage in much the same way as the existing Polo and Golf hatchbacks.
Both the crossovers will come with the choice of petrol, diesel or plug-in petrol-electric hybrid drivetrains, together with either front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive and will complement VW's SUV's in the segment. Higher up -Touareg while Tiguan and its variants will be the lower in the SUV segment.

The upcoming release of the T-Roc and T-Cross SUVs are said to be part of Volkswagen's strategy to fast-track the development of its SUV lineup. The German car manufacturer is hoping to increase its presence in the fast-growing SUV market.

I thought the VW Taigun is the compact SUV we know as the Ecosport / Duster rival.

IMO the T Cross SUV will be above the Taigun & below the Tiguan.

Taigun ( not on MQB PLatform) a concept primarily developed in 2012 for the Brazilian Market. However the changed market dynamics and a length of just 3,859 mm VW considers it to be too small. This could mean that at a later date there could be a Micro CUV - but for now T Cross is speculated to be its replacement.

Quote:
The Taigun only measured 3,859mm long, stretching to 3,995mm with an externally mounted SUV. While India might appreciate such a car, even the South American market has begun to demand slightly larger 4x4s.
VW's line up of S/CUV's ( T- Line) in 2018 will look like,

1. Touareg ( 4801 mm in length)
2. Tiguan and its variants ( 4485 mm)
3. T Roc ( ~4200 mm)
4. T Cross ( ~ 4000 mm )

It’s no secret that VW wants for some time now to enter the small crossover scene, giving us concepts like the Taigun and the T-ROC, and the latest one appears to be near-production

T Cross based on the next Gen Polo will be built on the smallest version yet of the MQB platform, called A0.
Quote:
It could also carry that name through to production, although VW has a number of other badges registered that would fit with its convention of naming its SUVs with ‘T’ names, including Teracor, Tribue and Terasun.

A choice of manual or dual-clutch auto transmissions. Its engine line-up will skip the Polo’s naturally aspirated 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrols and start with a turbocharged version of the same engine, which is set to deliver around 109bhp. The diesel could be the 1.5.

As the T-Cross is based on the new MQB platform polo, it could be a preview of how the next generation Polo would look. And if this is any indication, it will look good. Typical VW understated design that will age well.

VW sets the tone for its Crossovers to en-cash on its raging demand for sub compact crossovers.

Just having unveiled the T Cross Breeze which sits on a footprint close in size to the VW Polo subcompact car and would be the smallest entry in VW's coming lineup of five crossovers, whose roll out begins with the redesigned Tiguan compact crossover launching in Europe this spring.

A production T-Cross would slot below the subcompact crossover based on the T-Roc concept shown at the 2014 Geneva show that VW is expected to launch in 2018. There it will join the long-wheelbase Tiguan and the still-unnamed midsize crossover launching next year.

The Polo based C/SUV based on the MQB is expected to launch in 2018.

Quote:
Although the Polo parts of the operating concept and various extras and assistance systems of the Passat takes over, the next generation of modular infotainment kit one year debuts (MIB) until later in Golf VIII . After Golf and Passat and the Polo returns to the Modular Transverse Matrix (MQB). In order for the car is the first all-wheel-capable - which does not mean that it will actually be a 4Motion version. Prices for the Polo SUV without all-wheel drive will certainly begin at 20,000 euros.

Quote:
the Golf 3-door was the first MQB production car... ever. It's fitting that it serves as the underpinnings for the "Polo SUV," a subcompact crossover that doesn't have a proper name but does have a preview concept.
Quote:
the MQB platform is that it defines modularity. Nearly everything can be changed, including the wheelbase and overhangs. The only thing that stays the same is the distance between the firewall and the front axle
The compact will be based on Audi's Q2 and will extend beyond 4 m in length.

The compact from VW is rendered again - The model iso be introduced in 2018 and will be based on the MQB platform that underpins the Golf to the Euro-spec Passat.

The name is not yet known, but the rumors all hint at something with the letter T: Teracor, Tribue, Taigun , T Cross and Terasun.
