Volkswagen T-Cross Manages To Make A Very Good Case For Itself

The T-Cross is Volkswagen’s smallest SUV, slotting under the T-Roc in the brand’s range. It’s aimed at those looking for a fresh subcompact crossover, a segment that’s become greatly populated in the past few years.

Actually, customers are spoiled for choice these days, with most providing just about everything they need in terms of interior space, ride comfort and technology features.

So, where does the T-Cross fit in? With its colorful features jammed up in a small SUV body style and with no available all-wheel drive, the T-Cross is aimed at young, small families. In the UK, it’s offered in four trim levels called the S, SE, SEL and R-Line, with prices ranging between at least £16,995 and £23,555 ($22,094/€19,666-$30,622/€27,257).

We’ll start with the more positive aspects of driving such a car which, as revealed by CarBuyer in their review, are quite a lot. The test car came with the 113 horsepower 1.0-liter petrol engine matched to a six-speed manual transmission, and they both do the job quite nicely. The steering is not on the sporty side, but then again, this isn’t a sporty car. In fact, it feels much like its Spanish cousin, the Seat Arona, which uses the same platform. There is a bit of body roll in the corners, but nothing to be concerned of.

The cabin is well put together, and with Volkswagen offering several design packs, finding the look you like won’t be a tough job. Most of the plastics are soft-touch, every model gets an infotainment system that’s easy to use and the rear seat slides forwards and backwards for more legroom or larger boot space.

In the former position, there’s a big gap between the boot floor and the seats, and Volkswagen hasn’t even tried to cover it somehow. This is one of the negatives, but there are some other stuff that you’ll need to know about it, before making a decision, so you might want to check out the following review.
