The updated T-Cross is immediately recognisable by the new design of its front and rear with new integrated LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and LED taillight clusters.
The IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights are a completely new Volkswagen development and are offered for the first time on the T-Cross.
The central element in the interior of the new T-Cross is the free-standing infotainment display.
The standard touchscreen measures 20.3 cm (eight inches) across the diagonal; the top-of-the-range version has a 9.2-inch display with a diagonal of 23.4 cm. In addition, all versions of the four-door five-seater will now be fitted with digital instruments as standard.
The dash panel in the T-Cross has also undergone a complete redesign. As in larger Volkswagen models, the dash panel features soft-upholstered and significantly higher-quality surface materials.
A manual air conditioning system is on board as standard, and the Air Care Climatronic automatic air conditioner with back-lit touch sliders is available as an option.
The T-Cross has always had one of the most spacious and versatile interiors of all compact SUVs.
It impresses with its proven operating concept, well-arranged space for up to five people, a rear-bench seat that can be moved by 140 mm and an extremely flexible luggage compartment.
When all the seats are occupied, the T-Cross offers a luggage compartment capacity of between 385 and 455 litres when loaded up to the height of the rear bench seat. When the rear bench seat is folded down (60:40 split), this creates a flat load area with a stowage volume of up to 1,281 litres (loaded up to the height of the front seat backrests).
The new T-Cross is one of the only vehicles in its class in the world to be optionally equipped with Travel Assist for greater longitudinal and lateral vehicle control.
Depending on the traffic ahead and the permitted speed, the T-Cross can control the vehicle’s speed with automatic acceleration and braking. Within the system limits, Travel Assist can also include speed limits, bends, and roundabouts in its control interventions.
At the same time, Lane Assist can help to keep the vehicle in its lane. The new T-Cross can automatically perform stop-and-go operations when fitted with the DSG.
