Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze CabrioLet the hood do not fool you. The Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze may take advantage of the Range Rover Evoque Convertible (more accurate than the Nissan Murano convertible), but in fact the important thing is that this T-Breeze prefigures a new SUV that will be placed below the Volkswagen Tiguan .

The Volkswagen press release makes it clear: "The T-Cross Breeze offers an advance of a series of newly developed SUVs ... In the future, three more SUVs will join the Tiguan and the Touareg." It's clear, right?

Klaus Bischoff, design director for Volkswagen, told reporters that the T-Cross Breeze is an advance of the most compact of the three new SUVs that Volkswagen will launch. The T-Roc of Frankfurt's past saloon was another similar development but the size of the Golf, the T-Cross Breeze, meanwhile, ahead of us a version of the size of a Polo. The T-Cross Breeze is just larger than the Volkswagen Polo Cross (measuring 3.99 m), but its battle is significantly longer: 2,565 mm for the T-Breez And 2,469 mm for the Polo Cross.

The T-Cross Breeze features the 3-cylinder 1.0-liter direct injection turbocharged turbocharger already present in the Volkswagen Golf TSi BlueMotion. The 1.0 TSI goes here associated with a DSG change of 7 ratios, eroga 110 CV and delivery 175 Nm at 1,500 rpm. As the small cabrio SUV weighs 1,250 kg, it is enough to cover 0 to 100 km / h in 10.3 s. Okay, it's not fast but it should be efficient: Volkswagen announces an average consumption of 5.0 l / 100 km. And he says that with his 40 liter tank "has enough autonomy to go from Geneva to Cannes or Venice."

On board, Volkswagen advocates reducing the number of controls and pushbuttons that invade the dashboards and bet on touch screens and gestures. Although the T-Breeze is a 2-door cabrio, the resulting series model should be 5 doors and 5 seats, would be the most logical choice.

Will there be a convertible version? It is unlikely, but not impossible, at least for a car that will move in a segment below segment C. It is true that Bischoff also explained that "the T-Cross Breeze was the core of the design of future SUVs and compact convertibles Of the brand ". But your statement generates more questions than answers. Will the T-Cross Breeze also prefigure some type of convertible SUV in a top segment? Does it simply imply that Volkswagen does not renounce having a convertible in its range beyond the Beetle?
