German premium carmaker, Volkswagen will unveil the long-awaited T-Cross compact SUV at the Paris Motor Show in October. The new model is based on the latest-generation Polo platform that also underpins the Virtus sedan. Ahead of its debut, the new model was spotted testing with almost no camouflage that reveals most of the design elements.
The upcoming Volkswagen Polo SUV will be based on the T-Cross Breeze concept, which was first unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. To be positioned below the T-ROC, the T-Cross will be the brand’s smallest SUV that will go on sale globally. The new model is based on the Volkswagen Group’s new MQB AO platform. Going by the pictures, it is visible that the mini SUV shares many design elements from the bigger VW SUVs including the Tiguan and the new-gen Touareg. Also See – VW T-Cross India Launch Details

The headlights and the tail-lights are wrapped with stickers, but we believe that the headlights will share design cues from modern VW SUVs. Upfront is a full-width front grille with chrome surround, aggressive bumper with wider air-dam and sculpted bonnet. While the T-ROC has crossover-ish profile, the T-Cross gets more conventional rugged SUV look. Volkswagen will also offer several funcky colour options and dual-tone paint schemes with this mini SUV.
