After months expanding its design on paper, Volkswagen's new T-Cross SUV could be headed to the production line.

Presented in 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show as a much-anticipated concept, the series version is now making its way in the direction of the actual production line.

With the T-Cross, Volkswagen is expanding the spectrum of SUVs to include a smaller, compact model. "I am more than one thing" – that is the claim with the introduction of the T-Cross.

Waiting in anticipation

The world premiere of the new T-Cross will take place later in 2018.

Until then, Volkswagen will shorten the waiting time with a first look at the future SUV in the small vehicle class.

T-Cross, T-Roc, Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace and Touareg will now be the five SUV formats of the brand in Europe. The new T-Cross will enrich the SUV range in China and South America, as well.

Volkswagen said: "The 4107mm long SUV is designed with charisma, always front-driven, functionally conceptualised, and cleverly constructed.

"The modular transverse matrix (MQB) creates a surprising amount of room. For example, the back seat can be adjusted lengthwise – for more knee room or more room for luggage."

Standard on board: the "Front Assist" (ambient traffic monitoring system) and "Lane Assist" (lane departure warning system).
