The old adage says you should dot the i’s and cross the t’s if you want success, and the Volkswagen T-Cross has proved that minute detail does indeed add up to a complete package. 

Launching it was a smart move on VW’s part, securing a lucrative slice of the small SUV pie. Volkswagen already has the family and large SUV classes covered with the Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace and giant Touareg, the latter two of which can offer seven seats.

The advertising strap line for the T-Cross is ‘I am more.’ Apparently that means more of everything you could want in a car, but how true is that? Well, the T-Cross sits on the same underpinnings as our 2019 Small Car of the Year, the Volkswagen Polo, and such pedigree DNA should form a solid foundation.

But how does it compare with the rest of its small SUV competitors? There are a few, such as the Seat Arona — our 2019 Small SUV of the year — the Kia Stonic, the Hyundai Kona and, of course, VW’s other Small SUV candidate, the Volkswagen T-Roc.

Read on to find out the answer, and if any of these take your fancy, why not take the stress out of finding the best deal on your next new car by heading straight to our What Car? New Car Buying page. There you will find the best deals without the need for awkward haggling.
