Externally, you can recognize the revised, now 4.14 meter long (plus 2.7 centimeters) Volkswagen T-Cross by, among other things, modified bumpers and new lighting graphics. LED headlights are now installed ex works; matrix headlights are on board in the higher equipment versions Style and R-Line. The standard scope includes a digital cockpit, a more modern infotainment system and an improved selection of materials. The infotainment display is now free-standing; in the top versions it is ten inches in size and in the basic versions it is eight inches. Depending on the equipment line, the small SUV has 16 or 17 inch wheels.
No changes to the engines
The range of engines remains largely unchanged. It consists of a one-liter three-cylinder turbo in the expansion stages 70 kW/95 HP and 85 kW/116 HP (previously: 81 kW/110 HP). The top engine is the 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 110 kW/150 hp and cylinder deactivation.
In the 150 hp unit, a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG) transfers power to the front axle; in the basic gasoline engine, a manual five-speed transmission. As an alternative to the six-speed manual switch, the seven-speed DSG is available for the 116 hp variant. The support load has been increased by 20 to 75 kilograms and now makes it easier to transport e-bikes using a carrier on the trailer hitch. The trailer load as such is still up to 1,200 kilograms, depending on the engine.
Market launch and prices
VW opens the order books in autumn. The current generation will be offered in Germany for a short time and will then be sold off. The prices for the facelift versions are likely to rise slightly; previously the T-Cross was available from around 22,500 euros. (Text: em/sp-x, tv | Images: manufacturer)
