Summary

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 April 2021, it is one of the highest-rated small SUV/crossovers as ranked by The Car Expert’s unique Expert Rating index, although a few points behind the class-leading 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.

The Volkswagen T-Cross has not yet been lab tested by Green NCAP. This is a new initiative, launched in 2018 as a sister organisation to Euro NCAP. As yet, very few new cars have been tested for environmental impact by Green NCAP, and the testing programme was halted in early 2020 by the coronavirus pandemic.

If the T-Cross is put through the Green NCAP lab testing programme, we will publish the results here.
