Volkswagen expects that half of its sales will be crossovers and SUVs by 2025. The new T-Cross will be one of those models.
There will be four engine choices: three turbocharged gasoline ones and a turbodiesel four-cylinder.
In styling it largely mimics other VW crossovers, with a tall, boxy stance, a large front grille and big lighting elements.
As to interior room, the T-Cross' rear seat can slide fore and aft by 5.5 inches, while cargo space will measure up to 16.1 cubic feet.
Standard technologies will include precollision warning and braking and blind-spot monitoring, with wireless phone charging offered as an option.
