Volkswagen has started teasing the world with a new SUV concept ahead of the global debut at the 2016 Geneva Auto Show. The SUV concept is named as T-Cross and the company calls it "trendy and affordable". The teaser images suggest that it is based on the Polo hatchback and would be the entry-level vehicle in the SUV lineup of the company. Additionally, the images further suggest that the Volkswagen T-Cross is in production guise rather than a mere concept car.

"The concept car can be seen as the beginning of a broad SUV offensive. With this vehicle, Volkswagen gives a realistic perspective on a completely new model series and at the same time on the future production model. Its operating concept features hardly any switches, creating a conceptual bridge to the BUDD-e, which amazed an international audience at the CES in Las Vegas," said the company in an official statement. Just so you know, Volkswagen T-Cross would be underpinning the company's latest MQB platform, while being available with several engine options like petrol, diesel and plug-in-hybrid. Also, it would be presented in both the front-wheel-drive and the all-wheel-drive (4X4) systems.

Going by the teaser images, one can clearly see the T-Cross SUV flaunting big square-shaped LED headlamps. Meanwhile, the daytime running lights (DRLs) surround the fog lamps. The teaser image also showcases the model carrying a full body cladding and skid plate at the front bumper. The German automaker has already announced the world premiere of T-Roc - the elder sibling of T-Cross - later this year. Both the T-Roc and T-Cross would further strengthen the SUV portfolio of Volkswagen alongside the Tiguan and Touareg. For those asking, the brand has scrapped the plans of producing Taigun small SUV, which was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo as concept vehicle.
