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

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:

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

The 2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is a drop-top version of the company’s subcompact crossover. Launches two years after the coupe regular version, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet isn’t just a T-Roc with a soft-top, it also features only two doors instead of four. What’s more, the soft-top has a sleeker design, so the Cabriolet looks sportier than its standard sibling. Inspired by the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet is Volkswagen’s only small convertible to date after the discontinuation of the Beetle.

Volkswagen has unveiled its drop-top T-Roc Cabriolet, which it's billing as the only mainstream crossover with a proper convertible roof.
Based on the T-Roc SUV, the company's drop-top crossover follows in the footsteps of the soft-top Range Rover Evoque and Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet by blending wind-in-your-hair thrills with the taller ride popular with buyers at the moment.
Although it bears the T-Roc name, the Cabriolet isn't just a normal T-Roc SUV with the roof prised off. It's actually 34mm longer than the hardtop with a 37mm longer wheelbase, while front seat occupants sit 599mm above the road – which Volkswagen says ensures they "enjoy a great view".

PROS
Traditional SUV attributes with wind-in-the-hair fun
Marks a return of convertibles to VW’s line-up
Trims start with well-equipped Design
It certainly makes a statement...

CONS
Less practical than the five-door T-Roc SUV
Cabriolet quite a bit pricier, too
Reduced engine range with no diesel
Handling becomes a bit wobbly
