VW Cross Up!: New mini crossover revealed

VW Cross Up!

VW has revealed the VW Cross Up!, a mini crossover. Nice!

Power comes from the same 74hp (75PS) three-cylinder petrol engine connected to a five-speed manual gearbox driving the front wheels as the regular Up!, with the car gaining an SUV-themed exterior through the use of black body cladding for the bumper surrounds, side sills, and wheel arches, plus silver roof rails and bumper trims. A new set of 16-inch alloy wheels shod in tires size 185/50 completes the look.

VW makes no mention of any changes to the car’s suspension or traction control system in its initial release.

The interior of the Cross Up! is spiffed up with unique seat trim available in red or dark grey with a matching dashboard finish, leather wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and handbrake, plus chrome trims for the vents and speedometer as well as the door sills.

In Germany, the new Cross Up! will have a starting price of €13,925 (equal to US$18,600 and £11,800 at today’s currency rates).
