It will join the CrossPolo, CrossGolf and CrossTouran models, which have been a big success in Europe.

Cross models are individualised Volkswagen models with a particularly rugged design and tough, lifestyle qualities.

Thanks to numerous striking exterior elements, the Cross up! is instantly recognisable as a stand-alone model.

Sideways on, for example, black mouldings on the wheel arches and sills, plus full-length door protector strips topped with 'Cross up!' lettering create a sporty look.

Further unmistakable features of the Cross up! include the silver roof rails, the wing mirrors in a light silver metallic finish and bumpers also incorporating silver elements.

The robust, sporty character is defined above all by the extra ride height and the 'Cross' 16-inch alloys with a high-sheen finish and 185/50 tyres.

High-quality details are also to be found in the interior of the Cross up!, from kick-plates with 'Cross up!' lettering to seats in a special trim (in a choice of red or anthracite), an instrument panel with high-quality dash-pad (in a choice of red, black or dark silver), and a leather-covered steering wheel and handbrake lever.

The Cross up! is equipped to a high specification: included as standard are remote central locking, electric front windows, fog lights, electrically adjustable heated wing mirrors, an asymmetrically split, folding rear seat with headrests, a variable-height boot floor, a rev counter, a multifunction display and ESC electronic stability programme.

A 75bhp three-cylinder petrol engine combined with a five-speed manual transmission serve as the power train for the lifestyle-oriented Cross up!, which is available in Germany from late summer at a starting price of €13,925.

Ireland and UK sales are under consideration, but not confirmed.
