Available to the UK market from January 4, 2024, the updated Volkswagen T-Cross has a revamped design, enhanced standard equipment, new technology features and a newly designed high-quality interior.
Inside the vehicle, the central element is the free-standing infotainment display, comprised of a standard touchscreen measuring 8in across the diagonal; the top-of-the-range version has a 9.2in display. The soft-upholstered dash panel has also gone through a complete redesign and features a high-quality surface.
With more than 1.2 million sold since the model launched four years ago, the new T-Cross is equipped with Travel Assist as standard. Depending on traffic and the permitted speed, it can control its speed with automatic acceleration and braking. Within the system limits, Travel Assist is also designed to include speed limits, bends and roundabouts in its control interventions. Simultaneously, Lane Assist helps keep the vehicle in its lane, and the addition of a direct-shift gearbox (DSG) can aid drivers in traffic jams with the stop-and-go function.
The updated compact SUV has space for five people, with a rear bench seat that can be moved by 140mm and a flexible luggage compartment.
When all the seats are occupied, the T-Cross offers a luggage compartment capacity of between 385 and 455 liters (when loaded up to the height of the rear bench seat). Folding down the rear bench seat (60:40 split) creates a flat load area with a stowage volume of up to 1,281 liters (up to the height of the front seat backrests).
All upgraded T-Cross models now include LED tail light clusters, Dynamic Road Sign Display, the Digital Cockpit and a new, free-standing infotainment display.
