Discover the Volkswagen T-Cross Compact SUV

VW T Cross

Discovering the Volkswagen T-Cross is all about adventure.  The T-Cross is the smallest of Volkswagen’s SUV range, sitting below the T–Roc and Tiguan. Drivers can expect it to be practical, funky, safe, well-equipped and competitively priced. It will compete with other urban crossovers including the Kia Stonic, Seat Arona, Nissan Juke and Renault Captur.

Technology Ahead

The T-Cross is going to utilize much of the technology that the VQ polo embodies, from the configurable digital instruments to the slick 8.0in infotainment touchscreen that will be available. Here's what the T-Cross offers you.

Lane Assist

The Lane Assist departure warning detects whether the vehicle has inadvertently departed from the marked lane, and initiates a corrective steering intervention for you; so, you never drift away again.

High Beam Assist

Dipping the high beams can pass your notice, but with high beam assist from Volkswagen, this is done automatically to help you to improve driver control and safety. A camera is built into the rear-view mirror so that when it detects oncoming traffic or vehicles ahead, the lights dip automatically.

Blind Spot Sensors

SUVs generally have a blind spot the size of Jupiter, so the fact that the T-Cross has sensors is a huge plus. The Rear Traffic Alert monitors the area at the back of the vehicle and tells you if there is any traffic about to cross your path.

Parking Distance Control

There are acoustic and visual warnings emitted by the Park Distance Control function, detecting obstacles at the front of the car and behind. You can use the Manoeuvre Braking Function to avoid collisions or reduce the severity of an imminent crash when reversing.

ACC Adaptive Cruise Control

ACC Adaptive Cruise Control helps to avoid accidents by always keeping your car at a safe distance from the traffic ahead.

The adaptive cruise control system keeps you a safe distance from the vehicle in front, and that makes driving much easier in slowly and stop and go traffic. It means you'll be more relaxed and comfortable on long journeys, knowing you have an extra helping hand.

Driving It Down

Almost all versions have a manual gearbox as a standard option, but there is a seven-speed dual clutch automatic available on the 1.0 TSI 115 and 1.6 TDI that can shift smartly and smoothly. Volkswagen does brakes well, and it's no different for the T-Cross, which are progressive. This allows for a calm stop, and with the road roar hushed, you can enjoy a little quiet even at high speed. You'll notice the wind noise, but that's to be expected.

The new Volkswagen Compact SUV handles well, light in town and surefooted on the faster roads. The steering loads naturally and it's a work in progress. You'll be cruising along with the “beats” sound system in play, making the ride a pleasant one.

Interior Beauty

The T-Cross First Edition offers comfort and relaxation thanks to the roominess from the raised seating position. There is a 455L capacity, with a luggage compartment volume that is impressive. The hallmark of the T-Cross is in the versatility, and as the new Edition is out in February, and you can contact Sinclair Volkswagen for more information.
