Just like the refreshed Fox, the CrossFox too gets redesigned headlights which are slimmer and sharper, and a new chrome strip for the grille. The sides get new “Soul” 15-inch alloy wheels (16-inch optional) with 205/60 tyres, and silver inserts in the body cladding.
At the rear, VW has given the CrossFox a new bumper with repositioned reflectors and new taillight clusters.
New exterior shades on the CrossFox come in the form of Red, Silver, Blue and Orange.
Inside, the CrossFox gets the new 3-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel seen even on the Polo and Vento in India. A new seat upholstery, floor mats and a 5.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated navigation and Bluetooth make up the other changes.
Powering the 2015 CrossFox is the new EA211 1.6-liter four-cylinder flex-fuel engine which makes 120 PS (118.3 bhp) and 165 Nm of torque when run on ethanol. The engine is paired to 6-speed manual and automated manual transmissions. The AMT also gets paddle shifters.
Like the new Fox, the CrossFox too comes with ABS, EBD, ESP, TCS, Hill Hold and an electronic differential lock. The car is priced between 57,990 Reals to 61,180 Reals (INR 14.43 lakhs to INR 15.23 lakhs).
VW India have no immediate goals to explore the volume segments below the Polo. Their next new products would be an SUV and a sedan in the sub-4m class.
