Introduction

What Car? says...

At first glance, the Volkswagen T-Cross doesn't seem like a model that VW really needs in its line-up. After all, it already has the T-Roc – another small SUV that's near enough the same size. Indeed, you might even find yourself trying to choose between the two cars.

But look a little closer and there are some key differences. The T-Cross is available with less powerful engines and more spartan trim levels, for example, so it can be quite a lot cheaper to buy if you select your spec carefully. It also has some clever tricks, including sliding rear seats, so in some ways it's a more practical car.

If you're in the market for a small SUV, you might also be tempted by the closely related Skoda Kamiq, the Ford Puma and the Nissan Juke. So how does the Volkswagen T-Cross square up against all those alternatives and others?

Read on through this VW T-Cross review to find out the answer. Whichever car you end up deciding to buy, check out our New Car Buying service pages to find out how much you could save on a T-Cross without any awkward haggling.
