Geneva Motor Show LIVE: Volkswagen cross up! image

Volkswagen is expanding its city car range with a new member, the cross up!.

The four-door vehicle will be launched in midsummer and will join the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran as the fourth individualised Volkswagen with a particularly rugged design.

With its distinctive exterior elements, the cross up! can be identified as a different up! at first glance. From the side, black trim panels on the wheel arches and sills as well as the door protection strips all the way around make for a sporty overall impression.

Other unmistakable features are silver roof rails, wing mirrors painted in “light silver metallic” and bumpers with silver highlights. The car’s rugged character is also emphasised by the raised body as well as the machine-polished 16-inch light alloy wheels of the “cross” type.

The car is powered by a 3-cylinder 1.0-liter engine developing 55 kW / 75 PS, which consumes 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 109 g/km CO2). The engine is mated to 5-speed manual gearbox. The cross up! will go on sale in Germany by midsummer for a starting price of 13.925 euros. The model will only be available as a four-door.
