Overview of VW T-Cross Specs:

View of mirror VW__T-Cross

The new VW T-Cross may have sourced its inspiration from the iconic Polo, but the elevation in sheer design is clear with the T-Cross. It exudes class and presence (which is to be expected from an SUV) but takes it one step further with the plethora of tech that VW has given it. Let’s explore this range’s wonderful new specifications.

VW has been mindful to ensure that there is sufficient space in the T-Cross. Given the vehicle's specifications and that it is not the largest SUV that one could find on the road, this is worthy to note. Following suit with some of its competitors, the front seat is raised to create a feeling of space and control. There is also an allowance for the rear seat to fold and slide, allowing passengers to make room as and where they deem fit. Volkswagen has rounded this off by tucking nuggets of storage compartments throughout the vehicle.

The new VW T-Cross also boasts an attractive yet practical exterior. It is kitted out with 16” “Belmont” alloy wheels and all the models in the range come equipped with roof rails. The R-Line range offers its driver the option of emblazoning their ride with a coat of individuality with 18” “Nevada” alloy wheels.

VW T-Cross Performance, Technology, and Drive:

Our first three models in the VW T-Cross range come standard with a 3-cylinder engine (the VW T-Cross 1.5 R-Line DSG 110kW comes with a 4-cylinder). The range is also extremely frugal when it comes to petrol consumption, sipping a mere 5.4 liters per 100kms.

As previously mentioned, Volkswagen has spent a good deal of time on the innovation and tech aspects of this new range. Models come equipped with an Active Info Display and an Infotainment system. The 12.3-inch screen puts driving information on glorious display and also houses the “Discover Navigation” system. The technology is not only practical for the road but is also playful. Innovations such as We Connect Go allow an element of interconnectivity between your mobile device and your vehicle.

The range also offers a wireless charging option, which allows you to charge your mobile device by playing it on the inductive tray. There are also some more recognizable features offered across the models such as Park Distance Control and Cruise Control.

Innovation On Steroids:

There is always the danger that a manufacturer of VW’s caliber could release an SUV that is completely “paint-by-numbers”. Aspects of performance, safety, and specifications run the risk of being formulaic. Given Volkswagen’s reputation, they may even be able to get away with it. However, the new VW T-Cross is laden with innovation and technology that elevates not only the range but the brand overall. It is true innovation on steroids.
