    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.

    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. A car that is just as much at home in the city as it is on long journeys.

    ID. BUZZ – world premiere

    In its design, the electric concept van forges links between the legendary origins of the Volkswagen brand and its electrifying future. The ID. BUZZ, like the ID., is another new Volkswagen vehicle that will give a face to electric mobility. These are cars whose thoroughly clear design reflects a transformation – of the brand and its models.

    ID. – the world premiere

    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.

The benchmark of its time – for decades

Clear lines, pure design – the new Volkswagen was a revolution in 1974. It was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, who created a genuine icon. Since then, the Golf has inspired time and time again – the latest generation, the eighth, was designed by Volkswagen Group Chief Designer, Klaus Bischoff, and his team. 46 years passed between the first and the latest model. The two designers were faced with very different challenges, and yet one question connects them both: how do you create a design that stands the test of time?
