Volkswagen Cross Up! revealed
Volkswagen has officially unveiled their new Cross Up! ahead of the model’s international debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.
The rather chunky Cross Up! will be joining the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and Cross Touran as part of the German carmaker’s family of off-road-themed passenger models.
The unveiled vehicle is almost identical to the Cross Up! concept that was presented during the 2011 Frankfurt motor show, with the production model featuring several styling enhancements unique to it so as to distinguish it from the standard hatch.
The exterior features black plastic protector strips around the wheel arches and lower panel edges so as to give off a semi-rugged look, while the grille, mirror caps, roof rails and the rear bumper feature silver elements.
The models is raised by 15mm more than the standard car and this serves to give it the slightest of hits as to its off-road capabilities, with the 10-spoke alloy wheels completing the exterior treatment of the car.
The interior also features chrome trim around the air vents and tacho, as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear knob. The color of the seats can also be customized with a choice between red or black upholstery and the dash panel as well can be red, black or silver. The standard features include front foglights, split-folding rear seats and a multi-function instrument cluster display.
The Cross Up! will be getting its power from a 55kW/95Nm 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that will come from the standard hatch, which will be available only with a five-speed manual transmission.
The debut of the Volkswagen Cross Up! will take place on the 5th of March in Geneva.
