Volkswagen has officially introduced a new model called T-Cross. This is the smallest crossover in the line-up of the German brand.
The overall length of the Volkswagen T-Cross, built on the modular MQB platform, is 4,110 mm. The car is about 54 mm longer than the Polo hatchback put on the same chassis. But it is 120 mm shorter than the T-Roc and almost 380 mm smaller than the Tiguan.
The wheelbase reaches 2,563 mm, which is 114 mm less than that of the Tiguan. Thus, the T-Cross is close in size to the Nissan Juke.
The passenger seats are placed at a height of 597 (front) and 652 (rear) mm above the road. Passengers sit in the T-Cross about 100 mm higher than in the VW Polo.
The rear row of seats can be moved forward by 140 mm, increasing the free space in the cargo hold from 385 to 455 liters. With folded second-row seats, the trunk volume will enlarge to 1,281 liters. To transport long-length things, you can fold the front passenger seat’s back.
All T-Crosses are front-wheel drive. The model is offered with two three-cylinder petrol turbo engines of one liter, which produce 95 and 115 horsepower. A 1.5-liter 150-hp V4 is available too. There is only one diesel 1.6 liter motor with 95 hp.
Depending on the version, the crossover is equipped with a five- or six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed double-clutch automatic one.
The equipment includes LED headlights, an electronic dashboard, a multimedia complex with an 8-inch screen and four USB ports, an adaptive cruise control; a wireless charging for smartphones, a 300-watt Beats audio system with eight-channel amplifier; Blind Spot Detect, Lane Keep Assist, Frontal Collision Warning, Auto High Beam System.
