Your eyes, through which you go astray, he warns in the Bible. You see, the thing about small and bulky SUVs is that while some of them look good enough to eat, not all of them are very cops when it comes to the driving experience. The T-Cross, however, is not only a tough and good-looking devil, but it’s also capable enough on the road to win the hearts of even the most die-hard car enthusiast.
For starters, the engine options are reasonable but more than enough. The T-Cross has a 1.0-liter petrol engine in 94 hp and 114 hp flavors, as well as a 1.5 148 hp available only with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox. There is also a 1.6-liter 94 hp diesel option.
There are five trim levels, starting with the S, which features 16-inch alloy rims, air conditioning and an 8.0-inch infotainment system with a DAB radio. SE is better equipped, with 17-inch wheels, a variable-height boot floor, adaptive cruise control, automatic lights and wipers, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.

Changes in 2020 brought the United version, which is based on the SE. It actually has smaller 16-inch alloys, but adds front and rear parking sensors. SEL has them too, along with LED headlights, dual-zone air conditioning and a satellite navigation system. For a more sporty look inside and out, choose an R-Line. This model also features 18-inch wheels and a 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
To drive, the T-Cross is a model of ease. The steering is light at low speed but becomes heavier as the pace increases. The grip levels are high and it will grip well in the corners. It is refined and drives well too. In fact, it’s almost as polished as the Polo it’s based on, so if not downright fun to sniff, at least it’s a really nice thing to stroll around.
Even tall people will find plenty of room in the front of a T-Cross. Large door pockets can be found all around that can hold a liter bottle, and from the SE specification there are multiple USB charging sockets on the front and back. The only major downside is that the interior quality seems to have taken a nosedive as there is no soft-touch plastic in sight, unlike the cheaper Polo. Also, unless you find a T-Cross equipped with a Design Pack, the dashboard has no colorful reflections and therefore looks very dull.
