Volkswagen T-Cross

(2019 - present)

The Volkswagen T-Cross is a small SUV/crossover based on the Polo supermini hatchback. It is the smallest model in Volkswagen’s SUV range, sitting just below the slightly larger T-Roc.

The T-Cross has received good to very good reviews from the UK motoring media since its launch in early 2019. As of June 2020, it is the second highest-rated small SUV/crossover as ranked by The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating system, behind the Ford Puma.

The Volkswagen T-Cross has received particular praise for its comfort, practicality and driving dynamics. However, it has been marked down for providing less value than some cheaper rivals, as well as being less economical as well. The interior quality is also considered disappointing compared to other Volkswagen models.
