VW T-Cross

Volkswagen has added a 1.6-litre diesel engine to the T-Cross line-up, taking the place as the most fuel efficient model.

The 1.6 TDI can achieve an average of 52.9mpg and emits 110g/km of CO2 emissions.

Company car tax will cost from £100 per month for a 20% taxpayer.

Volkswagen has also published the WLTP CO2 emissions figure, which will be used from April 2020 for taxation purposes. It is 140g/km.

A five-speed manual gearbox is fitted as standard, there is also an optional seven-speed DSG.

The engine develops 95PS, giving a 0-60mph time of 11.9 seconds (12.5 DSG).

Prices start at £21,240 for the T-Cross 1.6 TDI SE.

The diesel is offered with all trim levels except the entry-level S.

As with the rest of the T-Cross range, the diesel-driven T-Cross is fitted with a raft of practicality-boosting features as standard, including a sliding rear bench – movable up to 14cm forward or backward, giving the choice between extra rear leg room or 70 litres of additional boot space.

Safety equipment such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Assist are optionally available.
