Sporty and efficient

VOLKSWAGEN’S T-Cross gets its most powerful engine yet. The compact SUV is now available to order with a 1.5-litre TSI with 110 kW/150 PS. The new power unit adds a unique, sporty option to the existing T-Cross engine range.

The T-Cross converts its power into traction both dynamically and efficiently to boast combined consumption figures of 5.2 litres per 100 kilometres. The new engine provides a maximum torque of 250 Nm between 1,500 to 3,500 rpm. The SUV accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 200 km/h. The most powerful power unit is exclusively available with the 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox (DSG).

For almost a year now, Volkswagen’s T-Cross SUV has been a highlight of the compact segment in the company’s model range. And this compact model is hugely versatile, be it in terms of more legroom for passengers or more space in the luggage compartment – the rear seat bench can be moved by 14 centimetres so any plan can be put into action with no hassle. This expands the loading volume of the small SUV from 385 to 455 litres and, if you completely fold down the rear seat backrest, even up to 1,281 litres.

The T-Cross is well connected too. It features wireless charging so you can keep your phone fully charged without the need for any cables. You can use the four USB ports (two up front, two in the rear) to connect your smartphone to the car with ease. The optional digital cockpit featuring a latest-generation, eight-inch Infotainment touchscreen and Active Info Display sets new standards in connectivity. The model also comes with a range of assist systems which were previously reserved for higher vehicle categories. Standard features include “Front Assist” Autonomous Emergency Braking with “Pedestrian Monitoring” and City Emergency Braking System, the “Lane Assist” lane-keeping system, Hill Start Assist as well as the “Blind Spot” Monitor lane change system which warns the driver about vehicles located in the blind spot, with integrated Rear Traffic Alert.
