Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It doesn’t really do sharp handling, it’s not quite big enough to match the best in class for practicality, nor does it come with seven seats. Yet don’t overlook the C5 Aircross if those limitations don’t worry you, because it has a lot of other things going for it; its ride is superb on most roads, it cruises along supremely quietly, it has a reasonable purchase price and very reasonable running costs.

Pros
Mostly a super-smooth ride
Quiet inside at speed
Frugal engines

Cons
Wallowy handling
No seven-seat option
Question marks of Citroën's reliability

The C5 Aircross is Citroen's (late) leap onto the family-crossover bandwagon.A plug-in hybrid arrives early in 2020. The big draw with that one will be better fuel economy for commuting, and lower tax. Interestingly Citroen elected to make its PHEV front-drive only to keep the price down. Whereas Peugeot, which sells 3008s at a higher price, went for a more expensive PHEV system with 4WD via an extra rear-mounted motor.

Pros
Very comfortable in all sorts of ways.
Looks different.
No sporty pretence

Cons
No sporty actuality.
Ride not as consistent as billed.
Occasionally irritating screen system

By:

Pros
Eye-catching looks
Generous boot space
Comfortable to drive

Cons
Some low-rent interior bits
Awkward infotainment system
Rear space is tight

T-Cross offers just enough over a Polo to make it worth thinking about.

Pros
Spacious and agreeable to drive
Different to a Polo,
Refined enough

Cons
Less refined and more expensive than the car it’s based on.
Low quality interior

By: 
topgear.com

The VW T-Cross is a compact yet roomy SUV which comes with loads of standard equipment. It doesn’t look as dramatic or feel quite as comfortable as some alternatives.

Pros
Big boot
Lots of passenger space
Loads of standard equipment

Cons
Noisy at speed
Materials feel a bit cheap
Alternatives look more exciting

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The Volkswagen T-Cross is one of the class leaders in the small SUV sector.

PROS

Spacious
Well-equipped
Desirable badge

CONS

Expensive top models
Quicker rivals
No hybrid model
