    All T-Cross First Edition models are powered by VW’s frugal 1.0-litre TSI petrol engine with 115PS, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, and two-wheel drive. As with the regular T-Cross, a high level of safety technology is included, with Front Assist including autonomous emergency braking, blind spot sensors, adaptive cruise control and Lane Assist all featured as standard.

    Practicality is high on the newcomer’s list of talents with sliding rear seats fitted as standard, allowing an additional 70 litres of storage capacity, or up to 140mm of extra rear leg room.


    The T-Cross First Edition represents a value-packed launch of the new T-Cross in the UK, with an extensive standard-fit equipment list applied to all 250 examples. Volkswagen Retailers will be accepting orders for the new model from 5 February, with the first cars of the 250-vehicle run arriving on UK roads in April.

    “The T-Cross is an exciting new addition to the growing Volkswagen SUV range, and there’s no better way to introduce it to the UK than offering something even more special to early customers,” Claire Haynes, T-Cross product manager, said.

    “These first 250 cars represent everything the exceptional T-Cross stands for – practicality, usability, comfort, and of course, fun.”
