German automaker updates the popular T-Cross model, ensuring it remains a top contender in a competitive segment.
Wolfsburg, Germany – German auto giant, Volkswagen, has released the first pictures and details of the eagerly anticipated T-Cross facelift. Notably, the car now comes standard with LED headlights and a digital dashboard instrument cluster.
Since its debut in April 2019, Volkswagen has successfully shipped over 1.2 million units of the T-Cross. However, in a jam-packed market segment, the T-Cross was ripe for improvements to maintain its appeal.
The Wolfsburg-based car manufacturer has announced several updates, most notably in design. The restyled spoilers have added 27mm to the vehicle’s length, now measuring 4,135 millimeters. The wheelbase stands at 2,563 millimeters.
Even in the base models, the Volkswagen T-Cross will now feature LED headlights and silver protective elements. For those opting for the higher-end Style and R-Line trims, there’s the bonus of matrix LED headlights connected by an LED strip. At the rear, redesigned taillights are also connected by a similar LED strip.
Customers can choose between 16 or 17-inch alloy wheels. New external color options include vibrant shades like Grape Yellow, Clear Blue, and Kings Red. The cabin boasts improved material quality, and regardless of the model chosen, a standard digital dashboard with an 8 or 10-inch display is included. The central multimedia system screen ranges between 8 to 9.2 inches, powered by Volkswagen’s latest software.
In terms of storage, the boot offers a flexible volume ranging from 385 to a spacious 1,281 liters when the rear seats are folded.
Under the hood, the engine options continue with the 1.0-liter TSI, offering 95 or 116 horsepower. While the former pairs with a 5-speed manual transmission, the latter is available with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG. Additionally, a 1.5-liter engine with 150 horsepower, combined exclusively with the DSG transmission, is also on offer.
Orders for the new Volkswagen T-Cross facelift will open this fall, with the first deliveries expected in the first quarter of 2024.
