UPDATE: The T-Cross is here!
After what seemed like an endless stream of teaser photos and videos, Volkswagen is finally unveiling the first-ever T-Cross small SUV. The automaker is holding an official debut event and is livestreaming it so that everybody can watch the grand premiere of what could become one of the best-selling models of the brand.
See the T-Cross:
What do we know about the crossover so far? It’s going to be based on the Polo hatch and will virtually be a Polo on stilts. The T-Cross will also share most of its components with the popular model, including the overall interior layout with a fully digital instrument cluster, engine lineup, and advanced electronic systems.
Despite its small size, the baby VW will be one of the most practical and roomy vehicles in the segment, offering a cargo area of between 13.6 cubic feet (385 liters) and 16.07 cubic feet (455 liters) depending on the position of the rear seats. If you fold flat them, the cargo area will expand to 45.24 cubic feet (1,281 liters).

The new T-Cross will be positioned below the T-Roc, Tiguan, and Touareg in Volkswagen’s SUV portfolio and will act as an entry-level model. It should help the company grow its SUV and crossover sales to more than 50 percent of its overall deliveries by 2025.
The Volkswagen world premiere of the all-new T-Cross1 will be broadcasted live on Thursday, October 25th 2018, from 07.00pm until 07.45pm CEST (05.00pm GMT – 05.45pm GMT):
