Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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
