The statement came from Dr. Herbert Diess, Volkswagen’s new CEO, who claims this model has everything it takes to be suitable for everyday use.
However, the real purpose of the new Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze Concept is to showcase the company’s new design language for SUVs. This model comes with a fresh and striking design, which also showcases the idea of a polyvalent and affordable convertible SUV.
Another unusual thing about the new Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze concept car is the human machine interface, as engineers call it. In layman’s terms, we are talking about the controls of the vehicle, specifically the switches.
Unlike conventional vehicles, the new T-Cross Breeze concept features touch-sensitive surfaces that eliminate conventional switches and buttons. This idea might eventually trickle to the entire Volkswagen range in the coming years. However, not all users like the idea of replacing conventional buttons with electronically operated ones, as the latter cannot offer the satisfying “click” when pressed.
Volkswagen’s new convertible SUV concept features a 1.0-liter TSI turbocharged gasoline direct injection engine, good for 110 HP. The model’s platform is unspecified, which makes us think it borrows the architecture of the Polo. The production model might turn to the modular MQB if it ever comes to that.
Volkswagen also prides itself on the 300 W BeatsAudio sound system that is fitted to this concept car. This is not the first partnership between the German company and the American sound specialist, and we expect it to carry on for as long as the two parties are satisfied.
