Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze Exterior and Interior

In a class all its own, the convertible SUV concept is sure to turn heads when it goes to production. At the front, the T-Cross Breeze implements a wide radiator grille and narrow LED headlights that are complemented by slim LED daytime running lights and distinctive fog lights. Sharp, double character lines run the length of the body and draw the eye to LED taillights and a spacious 10.6 cubic-foot trunk. A set of 19-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a Summer Green Metallic exterior with Deep Teal accents complete the package.

Inside the Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze, you will be surrounded by futuristic controls that made their debut in the zero-emission Volkswagen BUDD-e concept. Save for the control stalk, power window switches and buttons that open and close the convertible soft-top, the T-Cross Breeze interior controls are all touch-sensitive surfaces. Clad in Summer Green Soft special-effect paint with Deep Teal accents, the new concept with a sleek, new-age cockpit is sure to shock and awe many drivers.

An Active Info Display provides all pertinent driving data in an all-new animated and three-dimensional display. Providing nearly limitless access to data and information, the Active Info Display allows you to control everything from the center console including the 300-watt BeatsAudio sound system with access to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto streaming music. When you couple those elements with a drive-by-wire gear shifter with Sport, Normal and Comfort driving modes, the Volkswagen T-Cross Breeze Concept is the total package.
