How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

You’ll have no problem fitting in the front of the Volkswagen T-Cross if you’re tall. Leg room is as generous as it is in a Volkswagen Polo and, being a relatively high-roof SUV, there’s plenty of head room as well. It’s not exactly cramped width-wise, but the slightly broader Volkswagen T-Roc offers a bit more elbow room between you and your passenger.

Interior storage is plentiful. There’s a sliding drawer under the driver’s seat, a large glovebox and door bins, plus a multitude of trays, cubbies and cupholders for all your odds and sods.

Seat folding and flexibility

Every model offers the flexibility of sliding rear seats that let you prioritise boot space or rear leg room depending on your needs – few of the T-Cross's rivals offer that feature, and it doesn't appear on the closely related Arona or Kamiq, the bigger T-Roc, or the Ford Puma.

It would be even handier if the rear bench didn’t slide in its entirety and, instead, each seat could be moved individually, as they do in more expensive, larger SUVs. The rear seatbacks split in the usual 60/40 pattern, for those times when you need to accommodate bigger loads and passengers at the same time, but they don't recline, though.
