Volkswagen’s upcoming crossover, the T-Cross, has been spotted undergoing testing again, this time at the Nürburgring. The T-Cross will reportedly be the company’s most affordable crossover when it debuts, at least until (and if) the automaker decides to introduce the T-Track.

Styling-wise, the mule looks largely identical to what we’ve seen previously, including the placement of the camouflage wraps. While the vehicle is being touted as a jacked-up Polo, there’s not a lot of resemblance based on car’s rather large trapezoidal headlamps and window frame. The former is significantly different from the sleek units on the T-Cross Breeze Concept.

To my eyes at least, the design of the T-Cross does have an air of Fiat Panda 4×4 about it, although the plastic body cladding normally seen on other crossovers aren’t fitted here; there are roof rails though.

The T-Cross should share the same modular MQB platform as the Polo, and be available with a range of engines including a 1.0 litre petrol three-cylinder in either turbocharged TSI and naturally-aspirated MPI versions as well as a 1.5 litre TSI four-pot and a 1.6 litre TDI turbodiesel.

The T-Cross is just one of at least 20 new SUVs that Volkswagen plans to offer in its line-up by 2020, which also include a cabriolet version of the T-Roc. This is based on the company’s expectations that 40% of all vehicles it sells will be made up of SUVs by then.
