Nope. You are mistaken . The global launch is for the Golf based CUV - T ROC

VW's small CUV T Cross coming in mid- 2018. Expect this CUV based India launch in 2020/21.

AE renders the T Cross.

The baby SUV looks very sporty,” said one company insider. “You will wonder whether it’s a VW at all; you may recognise the grille, but it’s a very exciting design elsewhere
Quote:
understands the wheelbase is likely to measure 2,560mm – that’s a hefty 90mm increase over the previous Polo generation and less than two centimetres shorter than the Mk6 Golf’s. Expect VW engineers to use this gain to improve rear passenger space and boot capacity, although short overhangs front and rear should ensure that the hike in overall length is much more modest.

The first half of 2018 will focus on the launch of Virtus, confirmed to reach the dealerships by the end of January, apart from the restyled Golf line. As with the hatch and sedan, the small crossover will be produced in São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo.

Does this mean that India launch is going to be in 2020 ? Wish this was launched earlier, currently there are no frugal and desirable automatics south of 20 lacs. Jeep compass is good but a CUV with DSG gear box would be a good option for buyers.

People get attracted to DSG like flies to a lamp; so many failures on this forum itself still people can't get enough of this VAG derived deceptively smooth shifting box that can leave you high and dry in the middle of no where.

Here are the Engines for T CROSS, will also come in a 4 WD option.

Quote:
VW is planning a modular plug-in hybrid for the T-Cross in conjunction with a 8.8 kWh battery. The electric mobility is an issue in this class - but only in three to four years. The unified power pack, which also uses the Seat Arona, mobilizes 70 kW and 230 Nm, the battery brings it in the first stage of development to 21.5 kWh.

The top model Polo T-Cross GTI is probably a 200-hp 2.0-liter engine used, which is locked with a seven-speed DSG.

In the conventional engines VW concentrates on the economical three-cylinder in the form of 1.0-liter gasoline engine (from 65 to 115 hp) and the 1.4-liter diesel variant (from 75 to 115 hp).
The new 1.5-liter engine, which is to be offered in two performance levels with 155 hp and 270 Nm as well as 209 hp and 300 Nm, is ranked above this. In conjunction with the 48-volt network, the performance of mild hybrids increases by ten kW and 55 Nm, the consumption is expected to fall from 5.0 to 4.6 liters.

Volkswagen's next CUV, T Cross to rival Jeep Renegade, Honda's HR-V, Nissan's Kicks and Hyundai's Creta globally.
To be launch in the second half of 2018.

It will share the engines with the Polo, repeating the strategy of the Virtus sedan, leaving aside the 1.0 MPI aspirated to use only the 1.6 MSI engines.

Europe will get the additional option of the 1.5 TSI.

Volkswagen starts winter testing its small crossover - T Cross.

Speculated to be different from a usual VW design, with the grill being the only give away.

Will launch in 2018, this is VW next for India and would not be surprised is preponed to 2019/20 instead of the speculated 2021. When launched the S/CUV will rival the market leader Hyundai's Creta.

Will look sporty and like the T ROC will have the dual tone option.

T Cross( modified for India?) would most likely be Volkswagen's first launch in the MQB- A0 platform due in 2022/23.

Globally the CUV will debut in late 2018, rivaling Honda HR-V, Hyundai Creta , Jeep Renegade, etc.

Measuring around 4.13m in length, 1.79m wide , 1.56m tall with a track length of 2.56m, the CUV is marginally smaller than Jeep Renegade.

Design cues will be a mix from Polo/Virtus to the rear drawing inspiration from Audi Q3, rear LED lines also bring it closer to the Audi.

The commercial production of the model in São José dos Pinhais (PR) begins in January 2019, with sales in March of the same year.

Quote:
Volkswagen T-Cross will be offered in Brazil with 1.6 MSI engine options with manual or automatic transmission, and 200 TSI exclusively with automatic transmission, for the top-of-the-range versions
Expect this to be fast tracked for India with a late 2020/ 2021 launch date.

Built on the MQB-A0 platform at 4,13 meters in length and 1,250 kilos in India it will primarily rival Hyndai's Creta while internationally it will also take on Jeep Renegade and Nissan Kicks.
