Review

Go for the 1.0 TSI 95 SE model and you'll have bought a very fine small SUV for a sensible price. But if you want a more powerful engine or a posher trim level, we'd recommend you look at the T-Roc – it's only slightly more expensive and is a more sophisticated car in most important areas.

Trim: SEL

SEL adds further creature comforts, including dual-zone climate control and tinted windows, but the hike in price is too great.

Engine: 1.5 TSI EVO

Available exclusively with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox and is by far the nippiest T-Cross – but if you've got this much money to speed there are better cars available to you, including VW's own T-Roc.
