The Volkswagen Cross Up! Concept is a near-production study of compact off-road oriented vehicle that also previews the upcoming four-door Up! model.

Presented at the last Frankfurt Motor Show as part of the Up! group of concepts, the Volkswagen Cross Up! previews how a possible Cross version of the production Up! might look like.

While on the two-door car the shoulder or ‘tornado’ line and windows ascend towards the rear near the C-pillars, on the four-door car the two elements form a straight line.

This gives this body variant its independence, and it has a nearly van-like appearance.

As on the two-door version, the C-pillars are also supported over the rear wheel housings.

The design of the Cross Up!, is also characterized by the higher ground clearance (+15 mm) and the rugged look typical of the VW Cross models.

This includes the dark anthracite wheel well and side sill extensions; the black side protection strips above the sills; and the new rugged bumpers.

At the front the silver-colored underbody protection and cross-bar, which integrates the fog lights and the large air intake with a honeycomb grille.

Additional elements of the concept are the machine-polished 16-inch alloy wheels with cross design 185 tires; the red circle around the VW logo at the centre of the wheel matching the “Tornado Red” body paint color; the silver painted roof rails and door mirror caps.

The interior features seats with a special trim (red centre panels, grey side panels) and painted dashboard and door upper panels.
