New Volkswagen Cross Up revealedBack

Volkswagen has just revealed its latest car to join its fleet, the new Volkswagen Cross Up.

The Volkswagen Cross Up is set to be an SUV-style version of its existing car, the VW Up! which is currently enjoying success as a city car, appealing to a wide range of motorists.

The new VW Cross Up will make its debut at the 2013 Geneva motor show in March and it is set to go on sale in Europe in late summer this year. It is also possible that it will go on sale in the UK if customer demand is strong enough.

The new Volkswagen Cross Up is based on the existing Five-door Up! and it is near to identical in its mechanical make-up. Some of the cosmetic changes include black plastic cladding for the wheel arches and sills, door protection strips and metallic trim for the door mirrors and front bumper.

The Cross Up also comes with front-wheel drive and gains roof rails and 16 inch alloy wheels. It also has a raised ride height. Step inside the cabin and there is a choice of a red or grey trim as well as a unique instrument panel in red, black or dark silver and a leather cladded steering wheel.

Standard equipment which will be offered with the new VW Cross Up is identical to a well specced Up! model and therefore includes remote central locking, electric front windows, foglights, heated door mirrors and a multi-function display. The engine is the same 74bhp three-cylinder petrol motor offered in the Up!

Although VW have offered cross-badged models before such as the Volkwagen Golf, Polo and Touran, none of them have made it to the UK. Volkswagen has not yet revealed if the vehicle will go on sale here in the UK, but there are already hints that it could be brought over in tiny numbers initially as early as this autumn 2013, with an initial price tag of around £11,750.
