Volkswagen is expanding its “Cross” range models with the cross up!, which is the newest addition to the company’s lifestyle family including the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran models.
The Cross Up! is instantly recognisable with black mouldings on the wheel arches and sills, plus full-length door protector strips with ‘cross up!’ lettering. Further features of the cross up! include the silver roof rails, the wing mirrors in a light silver metallic finish and bumpers also incorporating silver elements. Adding to the character is the extra ride height and the ‘Cross’ 16-inch alloys with a high-sheen finish and 185/50 tyres.
Special attention has been given to the interior of the cross up!: in addition to seats in a special trim (in a choice of red or anthracite), an instrument panel with high-quality dash pad (in a choice of red, black or dark silver) and fabric mats, a small set of leather features with coloured stitching (leather steering wheel with spoke and leather handbrake lever).
The Cross Up! is equipped with remote central locking, electric front windows, fog lights, electrically adjustable heated wing mirrors, an asymmetrically split, folding rear seat with headrests, a variable cargo floor, a rev counter, a multifunction display and the ESC electronic stability programme.
The cross up! will be available with a choice of five colours, while a 75 HP three-cylinder petrol engine combined with a five-speed manual transmission serve as the main power train. The cross up! will be available in Germany from late summer at a starting price of €13,925. Now, all we have to do is to convince Volkswagen Malaysia to bring this tiny rugged car into our shore!
