The new Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze took centre stage on the Volkswagen stand at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The Volkswagen Brand Chairman stated: "Our T-Cross Breeze is the first open-top SUV in its class and, at the same time, an affordable, cheeky cabriolet with a raised seating position that gives you a perfect view."

An affordable fun car that is also entirely suitable for everyday use. A genuine 'People's Car'." And so the concept car, which is equipped with an 109bhp 1.0 litre TSI (turbocharged direct injection petrol engine), gives a glimpse of a new model series. At a length of 4,133 mm, the VW T-Cross Breeze is slightly longer than a CrossPolo. It boasts a long wheelbase of 2,565 mm, resulting in short body overhangs, thereby guaranteeing sporty proportions. The total height of the new Volkswagen is exactly 1,563 mm when the soft top is closed.

The T-Cross Breeze is characterised by a remarkably wide radiator grille and narrow headlights. These details form the new, characteristic face of this most compact SUV. The distinctive signature of the LED daytime running lights with delicate arcs of light under the LED headlights, as well as large LED rings around the fog lights, underline the independent design of this small SUV. The VW T-Cross Breeze is painted a warm shade of green called "Summer Green Metallic”.

The convertible SUV builds the conceptual bridge to the BUDD-e, which was also presented in Geneva and saw its debut at the CES in Las Vegas in January 2016. With the exception of the control stalk, the power window switches and the buttons for opening and closing the soft top, all of the controls in the Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze are touch-sensitive surfaces or executed as completely new "by-wire" solutions.
