Wolfsburg/Geneva, 04 March 2013
Volkswagen is expanding its New Small Family with a distinctive cross model: the cross up!. The four-door vehicle will be be launched in midsummer, and the Cross range will be enriched by a city specialist. When the new cross up! joins the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran, no less than four individualised Volkswagen with a particularly rugged design will be available under this label.
cross up! with the appearance of a small SUV. Thanks to numerous distinctive exterior elements, the cross up! (EC kerb weight: 995 kg) can be identified as an autonomous model at first glance: From the side, black trim panels on the wheel arches and sills as well as the door protection strips with cross up! lettering all the way around make for a sporty overall impression. Other unmistakable features of the cross up! are silver roof rails, wing mirrors painted in “light silver metallic” and bumpers with silver highlights. The rugged character is also emphasised by the raised body as well as the machine-polished 16-inch light alloy wheel of the “cross” type with 185/50 wheels.
The cross up!'s interior is also characterised by numerous individualised details: Beside seats in special trim (optionally in “red” or “anthracite”), an instrument panel with a classy dashpad (in “red,” “black” or “dark silver”) and carpet mats, a leather package with colour contrast stitching (leather steering wheel with centre badge, parking brake lever handle in leather) make for an elegant ambience. The customisation is perfected by chrome borders of the air outlets and the speedometer and by entry plates with “cross up!” lettering.
Rich standard equipment. The new car's standard equipment always includes, among other things, central locking with wireless remote control, electric windows in the front, electrically adjustable and heatable wing mirrors, asymmetrically split and folding rear seat backrests, variable cargo floor, tachometer, multifunction display as well as the electronic stabilisation program.
Customers can choose from five colours that fit the powerful style of the cross up! The following principally applies: The upper areas of the bumpers as well as the door handles are painted in body colour, whereas the panels of the B-pillars and C-pillars as well as window frames are painted in black. The lifestyle-oriented four-door is driven by a 55 kW / 75 PS three-cylinder petrol engine in combination with a 5-speed manual transmission. The cross up! consumes 4.7 l/100 km (equivalent to 109 g/km CO2).
