Rugged-Looking Cross Up! ready for Geneva show debut

Rugged-Looking Cross Up! ready for Geneva show debut

Volkswagen is expanding its range of striking Cross models with the Cross up!, which will go on sale in Europe from late summer. It will join the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran models, which have been a big success in Europe.

Cross models are individualised Volkswagen models with a particularly rugged design and tough, lifestyle qualities. Thanks to numerous striking exterior elements, the Cross up! is instantly recognisable as a stand-alone model: sideways on, for example, black mouldings on the wheel arches and sills, plus full-length door protector strips topped with ‘Cross up!’ lettering create a sporty look. Further unmistakable 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. The robust, sporty character is defined above all by the extra ride height and the ‘Cross’ 16-inch alloys with a high-sheen finish and 185/50 tyres.

Golf R Cabriolet

First glimpse of the Volkswagen Golf R cabriolet revealed

Meet the new Golf R Cabriolet, the first-ever open-top R model and the fastest-ever production open-top Golf. At the heart of the new range-topping cabriolet is a four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine producing 265 PS, connected to a standard six-speed DSG gearbox transmitting power to the front wheels. The new car has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph, with the benchmark 0-62 mph sprint taking just 6.4 seconds.

Design cues include a bespoke front bumper with gloss-black grille and ‘R’ logo, LED daytime running lights, bi-xenon headlights with black housings, gloss-black door mirror casings and black-painted brake callipers with R logo. Side sill extensions, a gloss black rear diffuser framed by chrome-tipped exhausts either side and smoked LED tail lights complete the look.

All-new seventh generation Volkswagen Golf breaks cover in Berlin

The all-new Volkswagen Golf has been unveiled in Berlin, 36 years after the original model redefined the small family car.  The seventh generation Golf builds on the success of its predecessors, of which over 29 million have been sold, bringing new levels of comfort, practicality, safety and efficiency to the class. 

Despite offering more room for passengers and more advanced technological features than ever before, new production techniques contribute to the Mk VII Golf being up to 100 kg lighter than the car it replaces, helping to make it up to 23 per cent more efficient than before.  On top of this, the new Golf is also safer than ever, thanks not just to a stronger body structure (which is also 23 kg lighter) but also to a raft of standard and optional passive and active safety systems.
