    The new T-Cross

    Welcome to the family: The T-Cross is the latest practical, cool and versatile addition to Volkswagen’s fast-growing SUV range. Even more suitable for the city than the T-Roc, and more compact than the Tiguan – but just as sophisticated as both. As versatile and practical as its larger siblings and combined with an attractive design, the new T-Cross is a flexible model with numerous customisation options and maximum recognition value – a typical Volkswagen.
  • Leading the way – The new Touareg

    The new Touareg is the flagship of the Volkswagen brand.

As a result this SUV, with its permanent all-wheel drive, is ideally suited for long-distance travel for business and leisure and for use on unsurfaced tracks.

    The T-Roc

    The T-Roc is the new face in the crowd. A versatile vehicle – available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive (with all-wheel drive, including the 4MOTION Active Control driver experience switch, as standard) – which combines the dominance of an SUV with the agility of a sporty compact.

    The fact is that the ID. combines the digitally connected world with electric drive, if required, and heralds a new era of fully automated driving. Analogously, this resulted in a visionary design for the electric cars of the future. It puts the spotlight on the individual: it is positive, honest, and fascinating to look at.
