The 2019 Volkswagen Cross Gte has a lot going for it, including a hybrid model, but you’d be wise to cross-shop its rivals as well. Additional new features for the 2019 Volkswagen Cross Gte include a heated steering wheel, and optional heated and power operated front seats on lower-trim models with cloth upholstery. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is optional. In addition to the gas-only model, the 2019 Volkswagen Cross Gte is also available as a hybrid with all-wheel drive as standard.
