Volkswagen T-Cross 2019 front right tracking shot

The Volkswagen T-Cross is exactly what many Small SUV buyers are looking for. It’s very comfortable and easy to drive, without feeling like a wallowy barge for those that like a car to entertain. It’s very roomy for its size, yet small enough that it’s easy to handle in town, and is competitive on running costs — whether you’re a company car driver or a private buyer. In short, it’s a great all-round Small SUV.

Trim: SE

This adds 17in alloys, adaptive cruise control, automatic wipers, front fog lights, a front centre armrest, height-adjustable boot floor, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. Options worth considering include the Winter Pack, which adds heated front seats and heated washer jets, and keyless entry.

Engine: 1.0 TSI

Don’t write off the entry-level 94bhp 1.0-litre. If your driving is centred mainly around town it serves up enough performance at low revs to see you cleanly away from the traffic lights. It’s just a bit breathless at higher revs so you need to work it quite hard to get it to 70mph. Once there it’ll cruise happily enough, though.
