Volkswagen T-Cross Key Features
- Distinctive VW design with new optional paint colours
- Practical interior with generous head and legroom
- 60:40 split rear seats and a 385-litre boot which can expand to 1,281 litres
- Good choice of petrol engines with 94bhp, 109bhp or 148bhp
- Various trim levels including the S, SE, Active, Black Edition, SEL and R-Line
Design and Practicality
While the T-Cross may not be as quirky to look at than rivals such as the Nissan Juke and Ford Puma, it boasts a funkier design than Volkswagen's larger SUVs. Paint colours like Energetic Orange and Mekena Turquoise, along with matching alloy wheels, help make it stand out on the road. There are also elements inspired by the rest of the VW family, including fog light surrounds inspired by the T-Roc and side creases reminiscent of the Polo.
Inside, the T-Cross features some clever tricks to make it more practical. Interior storage is plentiful with a large glovebox, a multitude of trays, cubbies and cupholders and a sliding drawer under the driver's seat. Legroom is as generous as it is in a Volkswagen Polo and its taller stance means headroom is equally good for both front and back passengers.
The 385-litre boot has enough space for a child's buggy or your holiday luggage, which can be expanded to 1,281 litres when the 60:40 split rear seats are folded down, which is 46 litres more than you get in a Renault Captur. SE trims and above comes with an adjustable boot floor as standard.
Interior and Trims
Sadly, the T-Cross doesn't quite match some of its rivals in terms of style, but refinement is good. The dashboard layout is almost identical to the Polo, with a large infotainment display, an attractive steering wheel and a simple, logical control layout. As with the outside, there is a range of trim packages to help jazz things up, with coloured and textured dashboard panels.
There are numerous trim levels to choose from, including the S, SE, Active, Black Edition, SEL and R-Line. The entry-level S comes with an eight-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, manual air conditioning, Volkswagen Connect and 16-inch alloys. Step up to SE, and you'll get front fog lights, black roof rails, a front centre armrest, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, a variable boot floor, and 17-inch alloys.
The mid-spec Active offers navigation, heated front seats, all-round parking sensors and a styling pack. A Black Edition model is also available with similar equipment to the Active but with a moody blacked-out design.
The SEL trim level adds LED headlights, silver roof rails, two-zone climate control, front and rear parking sensors, plus an uprated infotainment system and 17-inch alloys. Top-spec R-line adds 18-inch alloys, a host of interior and exterior styling upgrades and a standard 10.3-inch Active Info Display digital instrument system.
Power and Performance
Under the bonnet, the T-Cross comes with a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with 94bhp or 109bhp and a 1.5-litre petrol unit with 148bhp. The 94bhp petrol comes with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the 109bhp petrol version has a six-speed manual. The 148bhp petrol comes exclusively with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
Most drivers will be happy with the entry-level 1.0 TSI petrol engine for nippy around town or the more powerful 109bhp unit if driving long distances or on the motorway.
In terms of ride, the T-Cross isn't quite as comfy as the Skoda Kamiq but still rides well. Compared to other small SUVs, it's much less fidgety than the Kia Stonic, and more controlled than the Citroën C3 Aircross, and is generally smooth and well-mannered at cruising speeds.
Leasing vs Buying
Prices for the new Volkswagen T-Cross start from £20,080.00 OTR* or to lease from £155.54 per month.
