Volkswagen T-Cross Comfortline.


On October 15, 2019

Maintenance Costs R 4,000.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 1,000.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 6 L/100km

Here we have the new Volkswagen T-Cross, this particular model is the 1 Litre TSI Comfortline model which comes with a DSG gearbox. It is pushing out 85kw’s (114hp) and 200 NM’s of torque, which takes this beauty 0-100 in 10.2 seconds. Speed isn't a factor which one should look at when purchasing this vehicle, factors such as; comfort and the smoothness are factors which should be analysed.

It has an average fuel consumption of 5.3 L/100 km, which is great for city/town driving. The car comes standard with a 3 year 120000 KM’s warranty. The car comes with rear parking sensors (also known as park-distance control) there are LED daytime running lights and tail-lights, 16-inch Belmont alloy wheels, black roof rails and front fog lights. Inside the car, Volkswagen has fitted a well designed leather-trimmed steering wheel, multi-functioning display, height and lumbar adjustable for both driver and any passenger who sits in the front seats, electrically adjustable side mirrors, electric windows, split-folding rear seatback, a tyre pressure monitoring system, dual front- and side airbags, and cruise control.

For a car which cost R334600, it has more than enough technology. These vehicles are very good value for money because, of the technology that is in it, such as the parking sensors. I drove the T-Cross around Pretoria and it honestly kept impressing me, the drive was nice and comfortable, we didn’t have to switch off the aircon when we wanted to over take, and the the accelerator is very responsive.

When one is approaching a set of robots and applies the brakes, it softens the brake pedals so that the individual can continue to apply brakes even though the car will switch off because of the stop-start system.

My opinion is that it is a good car to purchase when one has a family because, the vehicle is quite spacious.

VW T-Cross makes you young at heart.


On January 27, 2020

Maintenance Costs R 0.00 / Year

Insurance Premium Value R 0.00 / Month

Fuel Consumption 6 L/100km

How do you engineer a World Car of the Year,Word Urban Car of the year and world design car of the year nominee and a finalist ? Well you take the MQB AO driving platform that is tried and tested and alive in Volkswagen group cars as well as technology.

The all new first ever smallest SUV from Volkswagen is alive in this very competitive crossover car segment and I just recently spent time with it, joining the Flagship Touareg and Tiguan in the range.

Based on 6th Generation Polo and Powered by the 1.0TSI three Cylinder turbocharged engine potent to generate 85KW/200NM sent to the front wheels and mated to 7 speed smooth shifting DSG Box, this specific unit in a comfort- line trim.

Volkswagen South Africa only sells the Comfort-line and Highline trims for now, the entry level 70KW Manual as well as top of the range 1.5L TSI R-line four cylinder is pending local introduction and can be pre-booked.

The Unit I was having was in a head turning and striking Makena Turquoise metallic paintwork with R-Line kit, previewed by the drop-top T-Cross Breeze Concept at 2016’s Geneva Motor Show, 54mm longer and 138mm taller that the locally built 6th Generation Polo, this is production version VW T-Cross.

385 litres of boot space larger than the cousin Golf ,can expand to 455 litres with the rear seat pushed forward as the rear seat can be moved 14cm and with 60:40 split , while laying the seat flat unlocking 1,281 litres of luggage space.


Volkswagen T-Cross door pockets are so huge that they can accommodate 1.5 Litre+, water bottle infront and back doors, while the center console can accommodate 500ml as well as under-seat cabin to store about 1.5KG worth of weight , pretty much versatile car that ticks the right boxes.

Ample legroom at the rear, still mind boggling for me on how Volkwagen Designers have managed to extract functional space from a car this size, beautiful firm leather wrapped multifunctional steering wheel that can be raked and telescopic adjusted as per drivers preferred positions.

The technology and design is borrowed from the 6th Generation Polo, the optional latest generation crisp 12.3 inch Active info display that puts everything to digital world ,it displays Navigation and car instrumentation , the intuitive 6.5 inch interface/touch screen with optional Discover Navigation.

There is Hill Start Assist and cruise control,300w 8 speaker Beats By Dre sound system with subwoofer and 8 channel amplifier, Apple CarPlay/aAndroid auto ,Wireless Charging/induction charging ,Bluetooth, stop/Start button with keyless entry.



My unit was equipped with optional camera ,front and rear park distance control even though these are not necessary for a city car this size ,however Volkswagen gives you the option to spec them if you may.

Not one but four USB ports, two from console and two at the back the cater and connect rear passengers,I say this is easily most connected car in its segment I’ve ever tested.

Fitted in this car was also park assist, meaning the car will see the parking space using radars and sensors and will maneuver to a parking space and all the driver have to regulate is the accelerator and apply brakes while the car takes care of the steering.

Everything feels nicely put together inside the T-Cross, though there’s little in the way of soft touch plastics, along the top of the dash is hard and scratchy platic, unlike the Polo where it’s made of a softer, rubberized material.


Boasting full five-star score Euro NCAP( European New Car Assessment Program) the Volkswagen T-Cross scored 97% for adult occupant safety, 86% for child safety, 81% in the pedestrians and other vulnerable road users category and 80% for on-board safety tech.

Safety features in the form of ESP,ABS with brake assist,ASR, EDL and EDTC, safety galore with also multi collision braking system and flat Tyre monitor.


This makes it one of the most safest urban cross-overs money can buy, there’s ISOFIX anchor points to anchor for child seats and top tether points for further child car seat securing, I say this is the most child family friendly car I’ve ever tested, designed to cater for the young ones with child seat anchor points everywhere.

Exterior is with LED headlights ,LED daylight running light as well as bending lights via the fog lights , R-Line Treatment with R-Line Emblem on chrome plated grille and on the fenders, also 17 inch Manila alloys comes as part of the R-Line package.

Also the cool looking smoked/tinted rear LED lights with rear full-width reflector around the back is designed to emphasize the car’s width, the Mirrors can be electrically optional folded at a fee, no wonder this car won in German awards, it just looks good in its shape.

But how does it drive:- my terrain was a combination of everyday daily commute to work and leisure, with the DSG coming in very handy in traffic congested city of CapeTown.

Did a gravel drive taking advantage of its tad more raised body than a 6th Generation Polo that is based on and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of comfort on/off-road expeditions.


Steering wheel is poised and firm ,nicely when you pick up the pace, providing a good sense of connection to the front wheels , drives with a little more verve, feels positively keen across much of the rev range.

Verdict:- Volkswagen expects the T-Cross to appeal to young families as well as a few older customers, due to its tall-ish roof and elevated driving position and they have hit the nail in the head.

An eye appealing funky car in design, with city car driving comfort, among the most accomplished compact crossovers in its class.

Refinement at its peak with quiet engine noise and little road noise , feels more like an SUV than a hatchback, grippy character on twisty roads, easy to drive around and park in the city and I want one!
Because exceptionally comfortable and composed.
