The T-Cross has been a real hit for Volkswagen, with 1.2 million sold worldwide since its launch in 2019.

With added new technology and a sharper exterior design alongside some upgrades which look to make it feel even more premium inside. How do these changes affect the T-Cross, though? Let’s find out.

The updates to the T-Cross are quite similar to those that we’ve seen applied to other recently-updated Volkswagen models. For example, there are now LED lights fitted as standard, or you could upgrade these to more powerful Matrix versions as an option - the first time that this has been available on the T-Cross.

A noticeable change is the inclusion of a light bar which now runs across the front end of the car. It’s a feature we’ve seen on lots of the latest Volkswagens, mainly within the ID range of electric vehicles.


Volkswagen has pushed hard to make that perceived sense of quality higher in the cabin of the T-Cross. To do this, it has added a new soft-touch dashboard which looks and feels a little more high-end than the one on the previous T-Cross.

Plus, Volkswagen has included more premium materials throughout the interior of the T-Cross to help lift its overall look and feel.

You expect to find plenty of technology on any modern Volkswagen, which is probably why the number of features on the new T-Cross has been boosted for this new version. There’s a new freestanding touchscreen as well as touch sliders for the ventilation - they’re two features which we’ve seen included on the recently refreshed T-Roc, too.

All versions get a multifunction camera, too, alongside 16-inch wheels and a leather multifunction steering wheel.


Volkswagen hasn’t released the full set of engines available for the T-Cross, but has stated that they’ll be ‘TSI’ units, meaning that they’ll all be petrol versions. It’s likely that the entry-point to the range will be a 1.0-litre turbocharged unit with up to 109bhp, linked to either a six-speed manual or DSG automatic gearbox.

There’s a good chance that a more powerful 1.5-litre engine will also be available, but it’s more than likely that this will only be available with the DSG automatic.

The new T-Cross will have a variety of rivals to go up against when it arrives on our roads. Chief among those include the Nissan Juke and Renault Captur, which both bring low-capacity engines and plenty of in-car technology.

The Citroen C3 Aircross has also been recently updated, meaning that this is yet another car in the same league as the T-Cross.
