Volkswagen cross Up! Concept
The cross up! is still a concept car, but it shows 3 aspects very clearly. 1. How the four-door up! will look. 2. What the four-door up! might look like in a cross up! version. 3. That Volkswagen will be extending its successful cross programme over increasing numbers of models. The new cross up! too shows rugged exterior qualities. They include wheel well and side sill extensions and designed in dark anthracite and black side protection strips above the sills; worked into these strips is the "cross up!" signature. Also redesigned are the rugged bumpers with underbody protection, front and rear.
Once considered completely independent of the cross-equipment covered by this member of the New Small Family in comparison to the two-door, of course, to the additional doors and thereby completely independently performed C-pillars. While the tornado line, and thus the graphics window, the two-door in the back area of the C-pillar rises, both elements are in the four-door car in a straight line. This results in the aforementioned independence of this body variant, which has an almost van-like appearance. As with the two-door model, the C-pillars support also from the rear wheel arches, in conjunction with the extremely short rear overhang, the result is a very powerful and dynamic appearance.
As soon as one of the doors or the tailgate of the cross up!opens, the eye falls on the seats in the special cross-Trim (red seat panels, gray side elements). As with all up! Models are also the Dash Pad (design panel in the cockpit before the driver's and front passenger) and painted the door sills,. In this case analogous to the exterior paint in "Tornado" Other applications, such as the frame around the air vents and center console are painted in black piano lacquer. A so-called "small leather package" with colored stitching finished steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake grip. Last but not least, protect strips with the word "cross" the interior door openings from the traces of solid or festive shoes.
