This compact crossover SUV is the smallest SUV model made by Volkswagen, so drivers can get all the benefits from an SUV without having to worry about the size. Buying a second-hand VW T-Cross is also an excellent option for those looking for a high-quality car that fits within a smaller budget.
When buying a used Volkswagen T-cross, there are several things to consider.
One way to get this fantastic car in a lower budget is to buy it used. The T-Cross has a powerful engine that makes it feel even more powerful than it is. The DSG transmission is smooth, so shifting is never jerky, even when you are accelerating quickly. It also comes in nine different colors, three of which have never been used before, including a new blue color called Makena Turquoise. You can also get it in Reef Blue, Pure White, Energetic Orange, Flash Red, Reflex Silver, Limestone Grey, Urano Grey, and Deep Black Pearl, so you are likely to be able to find a nice used car in a variety of colors to choose between.
The T-Cross has also rated five stars in the Euro NCAP safety test. The adult safety test rating is 97%, and the child safety rating is 86%, so it is an excellent car for families. Equipped with a Front Assist feature, it helps keep pedestrians and cyclists safe also. And accidents are minimized with the Driver Alert System that comes standard.
The T-Cross is roomy without seeming like driving a tank. It has a 2.55m wheelbase, so up to five adults can fit inside without feeling crowded. The sliding rear door is adjustable by 14 centimeters so you can accommodate more legroom or more storage space. The back seat can also fold down to create even more flat storage space.
The T-Cross is also equipped to help drivers take full advantage of the modern age with four USB ports and wireless charging for smartphones. There is the option to get a keyless locking and starting system and sound system with Beats that includes a 300-watt, 8-channel amplifier, and a subwoofer.
The model with 1.5 TSI, 110kW, and R-Line DSG comes with sports seats, a driving profile selection, climatronic aircon, LED headlights, Composition Media with App-connect, R-Line interior, 18-inch alloy wheels, and digital Active Info Display.
Add-ons include advanced sound system, Discover Media, Park Assist with Rearview Camera and Power Fold Mirrors, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitor, lane assist, removable towbar, titanium black instrument panel, black carpets, and ceramic headliner.
The T-Cross comes in a couple of different models that have different specifications for engines. The SE trim is available with two different engine choices. The 1.6L diesel and 95hp engine has manual shifting and front-wheel drive. The acceleration from 0-60mph is 11.9 seconds and has a fuel economy of 51mpg with emissions at 136 CO2. The same size engine also comes in automatic shifting with front-wheel drive. This engine has an acceleration of 12.5 seconds with a fuel economy of 50mpg and emissions at 142 CO2.
The T-Cross SEL has a choice of three different engines. The 1.6L diesel engine with manual shifting and front-wheel drive has an acceleration of 11.9 seconds. Its fuel economy is 52 mpg, and emissions are 137 CO2. This engine also comes in automatic shifting, which changes the acceleration to 12.5 seconds, fuel economy to 50mpg, and emissions to 143 CO2. The other engine is a 1.5L petrol with 150hp. This engine is an automatic with front-wheel drive and an acceleration of 8.5 seconds. The fuel economy is 54 mpg, and the emissions are 145 CO2.
The T-Cross R Line also has three engines available. The 1.6L diesel engine with 95 hp is front-wheel drive in both manual and automatic. The manual option has an acceleration of 11.9 seconds, a fuel economy of 52mpg, and emissions of 140 CO2. The automatic option has an acceleration of 12.5 seconds, a fuel economy of 50mpg, and emissions at 145 CO2.
When buying a used Volkswagen T-Cross, it is important to purchase from an authorized dealership who can offer you the service and insight you need to make a decision you will be happy with for a long time to come. An approved used VW T-Cross will be in better condition and will come with more peace of mind than one bought somewhere else.
Evolution of the Volkswagen T-Cross
The Volkswagen T-Cross was officially launched in April 2019 and is slightly smaller than the Volkswagen T-Roc. Even though its official release wasn’t until 2019, the conception of the T-Cross started in 2016 with the T-Cross Breeze. The T-Cross Breeze is not an SUV at all but rather a four-seat convertible, but externally it looks like the T-Roc, which was released two years before.
After the T-Cross Breeze, the T-Cross was introduced as a way to fill the gap between the convertible and the larger SUV, the T-Roc. The first T-Cross was launched late in 2018 and delivered in early 2019. Models like the 1.0 TSI (95PS, 115PS), 1.5 TSI (150PS), and 1.6 TDI (95PS) were the first models to be released. The German market later added 1.5 TSI (150PS).
The 72kW model, which was launched in September, was only available in the 1.0-litre, 85kW Comfortline, and Highline models. This model is a three-cylinder 1.0 TSI that has a direct injection engine. It can accelerate up to 100km/h in 10.2 seconds and a top speed of 193 km/h. Fuel efficiency is reported at 4.9 liters per 100km, and the engine is only compatible with a seven-speed DSG transmission. At the beginning of 2020, there will also be a 1.5-liter 110kW model released for people looking for a bit more powerful vehicle.
