4x4 look for VW's Golf Plus

The CrossGolf is basically a swollen-up Golf Plus with raised suspension and all the right styling accessories to give it a butch SUV look. - It's similar in concept to the CrossPolo, which is due to arrive in SA soon.

Macho styling features include roof rails, chunkier bumpers, side body cladding and larger 17-inch wheels.

The CrossGolf will come with VW's new 1.4-litre TSI twincharger engine and an entry-level 1.6-litre unit. Naturally there are diesel derivatives too - the 1.9 TDI and 2.0 TDI.

There is no indication if VWSA has plans to launch the CrossGolf here.
