Volkswagen Philippines might be launching the T-Cross

Volkswagen Philippines releases a teaser of an upcoming vehicle, and it could possibly be the T-Cross. The teaser only shows the side profile of the vehicle, and its exact launch date also yet to be disclosed.

The vehicle was given minimal exposure. There were even no direct hints from the teaser material that could tell you for certain what car it is. Instead, the vehicle’s silhouette inspired us to do some research, and it seems that the side profile does have a close resemblance to the T-Cross. Granted our assumptions are true, then this should be an interesting addition to Volkswagen’s lineup, given that the Tiguan solely consists the brand’s local line of crossovers.

Again, if our predictions are right, the Volkswagen T-Cross shall sit below the Tiguan, marking it the smallest crossover in the brand’s Philippine lineup. Segment-wise, it’s a subcompact crossover that competes with the likes of the Kia Stonic and Ford EcoSport. The model follows Volkswagen’s current design language that features body dimensions accentuated with well-planted body lines. One of its quirkiest design elements is the wraparound taillights that are unified by a large black panel.

It underpins the same MQB platform found on the Audi A1. If the T-Cross was to be launched here, then it could possibly come with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder motor, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder mill, or a 1.6-liter diesel engine. These could either be paired with a manual or automatic gearbox.

While we're still in anticipation for more details, there is indeed a high chance that Volkswagen will be launching the T-Cross in the Philippines, given that the small crossovers are now becoming a trend in the market. All we need to do is wait for more details including, hopefully, a confirmed launch date. For now, our fingers are crossed.
