Welcome to the family: The T-Cross is the latest practical, cool and versatile addition to Volkswagen’s fast-growing SUV range. Even more suitable for the city than the T-Roc, and more compact than the Tiguan – but just as sophisticated as both. As versatile and practical as its larger siblings and combined with an attractive design, the new T-Cross is a flexible model with numerous customisation options and maximum recognition value – a typical Volkswagen. The carefully balanced combination of casual style, refined practicality and extreme cost-effectiveness is aimed at a young and young-and-heart public who are keen to express their positive attitude to life in a self-confident and distinctive way. However, they clearly also like to keep a watchful eye on costs and maximise benefits associated with their mobile companion. The new T-Cross is an urban crossover which gives low-cost entry to this vehicle class in addition to comprehensive standard equipment and plenty of flexibility.
As with all Volkswagens, the new T-Cross sets standards in its class, and all at an affordable price. The basic version priced at €17,975 in Germany (T-Cross 1.0 70 kW / 95 PS provides an extremely flexible and versatile slice of individuality that leaves virtually nothing to be desired in terms of usability, safety or connectivity in the SUV segment. The T-Cross also offers a large number of configuration options, allowing customers to customise the vehicle to their heart’s content.
The T-Cross is manufactured using the modular transverse matrix (MQB), as is the Polo. Just like its sister model, the new T-Cross is also manufactured at the Spanish Volkswagen factory in Navarra. Volkswagen is set to invest some €1 billion there by 2019 in order to aid the particularly strong growth of the compact SUV market. Studies forecast that this segment is likely to double in size over the next decade. In addition, bespoke versions of the T-Cross will be manufactured in South America and China for these respective markets.
