Volkswagen T-Cross options to choose and avoidImage 1 of 8

If you're in the market for a small SUV, the Volkswagen T-Cross should be at the very top of your shopping list.

Despite sitting in one of the most crowded markets around, and fighting against brilliant rivals including the Seat Arona and Kia Stonic, the T-Cross stands out thanks to its spacious and flexible interior, impressive array of safety equipment and its smooth ride. In fact, it earns a full five-star rating on our road test.

Our full 16-point review tells you what the T-Cross is like to drive and to live with, but here we're focussing on which options you should choose when ordering one. Our recommended SE trim level gets you most of the kit you're going to want, including adaptive cruise control and automatic wipers, but it's easy to add thousands to the cost of your car with just a passing glance at Volkswagen's extensive list of options. Here's our pick of what to choose, then, to add luxury while also keeping costs sensible.
