Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze Concept is a Compact Convertible Crossover

5

The Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze concept has made an early appearance on the Internet.

Photos of the convertible crossover concept leaked ahead of its official debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. While we can expect details once the T-Cross Breeze concept officially bows in Switzerland tomorrow, we can see that it  features a fabric soft top. Early reports also suggest that this crossover is based on the next-generation Polo MQB platform.

It’s the latest in numerous crossover and SUV concepts that the German automaker has unveiled, as Volkswagen is preparing to invade the segment from all sides.

It is likely that the model will head to production with a more traditional five-door body style, but don’t be entirely shocked if Volkswagen pulls the trigger on a convertible crossover version pictured here. Sure, the Nissan Murano didn’t exactly fare well in the market, but the Range Rover Evoque convertible is a reality and a convertible crossover wouldn’t be the craziest thing Volkswagen has ever done, well maybe…

Regardless, expect a Nissan Juke-sized rival as Volkswagen looks to capture some of the compact crossover market in the near future. Another competitor is the new Toyota C-HR that is also making its public debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.

    Not the first company to put wheels on a bathtub. Certainly much better than Nissan’s Juke disaster, but that’s no praise. I predict that if they make this, it will sell like crazy. Hundreds in the first year alone.

    My initial reaction is favorable; this could be a hit. Couldn’t help noticing that the front looks like a Range Rover, the rear like an Audi, the upper sides like a Ford Taurus, and the lower trim all around like a Jeep.
