TheVolkswagen has promised nothing less than 20 novelties for 2020 in our region, some of which are already well known and come to Argentina, such as the T-Cross, and others will be presented in the coming months. This is the case with the adventurous variant that will be based on the Semi, and this will be the third alternative to the Gaelic boy, along with the GTS sports version. The news is that the German brand will register in Brazil's INPI (Instituto Nacional da Propriedade Industrial) name that will handle this version with field aesthetics: it would be called T-Sport.
Some media in the neighboring country, who have accessed the entity records and discovered this information, point to this. If this is confirmed, the name will keep a clear link with the other crossovers and SUVs already owned by T-Cross and T-Roc, except Tarek, Tiguan and Touarega.
T-Sport will be produced at the Sao Bernardo do Campo factory where they will share the same pole and Virtus lineup, which also uses the MQB-A0 platform. As expected, the hatchback will be featured for pseudo-off-road aesthetics, with plastic protection in the lower part of the body, roof bars and, in our estimation, greater distance from the ground. The aim is to compete with other similar B segment proposals, such as the recently introduced Fiat Argo Trekking, Honda WR-V, Toyota Yaris X-Way, Renault Sandero Stepway and Chevrolet Onix Activ.
It is important to remember that in the middle of last month, Volkswagen stopped production at the Anchieta factory (Sao Bernardo do Campo), but not due to low demand, rather than adjusting the production of this crossover variant and increasing its capacity. There is still no more data or details about it, just some unofficial sketches predicting what T-Sport looks like.
