Volkswagen T-Cross vs VW T-Roc

2019 Volkswagen T-Cross vs Volkswagen T-Roc
compact SUVs Difference between T-Cross vs T-Roc
Previous design sketches have hinted at a design that draws heavily from the larger T-Roc but with a distinctive rear end and on-trend light bar tail-lights. A recent preview showed designers working on the car, with brightly coloured trim being selected for the interior. Twelve interior colours will be available at launch, while a two-tone paint job will be available for the exterior.

The T-Cross focuses on practicality, according to another preview revealed by VW, with 385-455 litres of boot space with the rear seats in place, depending on their position, rising to 1281 litres with the rear seats folded. With the seats in place, this space is 33-103 litres larger than the Kia Stonic, and up to 55 litres larger than the Seat Arona, although with the T-Cross’s seats positioned for maximum leg room, 15 litres down on its Seat cousin.

The T-Cross is expected to cost around £17,000 when it goes on sale, rivalling the Seat Arona, Renault Captur and second-generation Nissan Juke. Latest spy shots show the car in its most undisguised form yet, although some cladding on the front and rear disguises the car as a T-Roc, covering its actual features.

Volkswagen T-Cross prototype 2018: first drive of crossover supermini

The T-Cross is the latest in a 19-strong line-up of SUVs that VW plans to have in place within the next two years. VW’s aim is to boost sales of high-riding models to 40% of its overall global total by the end of the decade.

It uses VW’s MQB A0 platform, shared with the VW Polo, Arona and Audi A1, among others.
Engines will also be shared with the T-Cross’s Polo sibling, meaning that 1.0 TSI petrol and 1.6 TDI diesel units will make up the vast majority of the range (the cars we drove used these two engines).

While the platform has been engineered to accommodate a plug-in hybrid variant, the first-generation T-Cross is unlikely to be electrified. It is too small to yet be considered for what still remains relatively expensive hybrid tech; a 48V mild hybrid will only appear on the Mk8 Golf next year.
The T-Cross will not get a GTI variant, with VW having previously said the badge will only be used on its Up, Polo and Golf hatchbacks.

A harder R version is more likely, but a decision will be based on the success of the larger T-Roc R arriving next year.

VW design chief Klaus Bischoff told Autocar recently that the T-Cross’s design had already been signed off and was “not so far from the [T-Cross Breeze] concept”, albeit without its drop-top.

Sucks that we in NA won’t be seeing either of these. Just Tiguan and Atlases of different sizes

John H. says:

I’d love to see the T Cross in the US market, VW says its too small?

Kevin Walton says:

I have a T-Roc 1.5 Sec (TSI) petrol from brand new, purchased in April 2018. Full of bells and whistles with all the driving aids you require. Rear view camera with all the proximity equipment one would need. Quite simply a beautiful car to drive, comfortable and effortless. Don’t hesitate, it’s brilliant !

Nico Grech says:

I purchased a T-Roc R-Line with full extras just two months ago, very very happy with it!

Calidad alemana vs basura brasileña

Edilson Campello says:

Boglut Alexandru definiu exatamente o meu sentido de frustação ao ver o TCross pela primeira vez. O carro que poderia ser um diferencial de Design para a VW do Brasil chega mais uma vez abrutalhado e igual ao Tiguan. Não aguentamos mais a mesma cara nos VW aqui no Brasil.

Sim Pedros says:

Would like to see the t-cross with 18s or 19s on it. Those tiny wheels look daft

Ramon Cazzador says:

T-Roc é muito mais bonito. Só queria saber a faixa de preço que esses carros virão para o Brasil, vão ser 4 SUVs da VW disputando no mercado: T-Cross, T-Roc, Tiguan e Touareg.

Alessandro pendragon says:

T-Roc,however, the T Cross remains the most original, alive the sedans …, not these cars raised

Wadson Barros says:

É lamentável o que essas montadoras trazem p o Brasil. Um carro lindo na(t-roc) na Europa e esse protótipo brasileiro p os tupiniquins.

Paulo Fernando says:

T-roc is a car. T-cross is a toy.

Erhard Weber says:


Benjamin Bressy says:

I don’t know

aerofly2 says:

Not sure what the objective here is? The T-Cross is based on the Polo platform, and the T-Roc is based on the Golf platform, so in effect your trying to compare ‘apples with oranges’.
