Question

Hello everyone,

Im looking for a compact crossover and came across the VW T Cross. In comparison to the likes of the MG ZS, Toyota Raize, Hyundai Venue and Suzuki Vitara it seems to be a much more practical buy. I understand there’s likely very few owners due to the prevailing duty structure and price for such a class of vehicle, however, I’d like to know if anyone has driven the T Cross and their experiences with regards to comfort and practicality. Any advice in that direction or otherwise would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, good to see some open minded car buyers who are trying to see beyond the mainstream vehicles in Sri lanka. I don't think there are any T Cross owners in the forum,  not even the ones living abroad.  I have watched a few reviews on YouTube regarding T cross.  Seems like a decent crossover,  which is based on VW Polo. Sharing the T from VW crossover lineup such as Tiguan,  Touareg. Better watch some online reviews and decide.  By the way does the VW agent in SL bring down the T Cross?

Thanks for the reply. I’m not aware if the agents bring down the T Cross. I’ve only ever seen it available at a car dealer that offers PCP financing for their fleet but even that was gone before I could view it. Hoping someone here would shed some light.

even running a Jap car would be difficult  if not for our network of Folks staying legally and illegally in Japan, who are sending body parts and recondition parts for affordable prices compared to the agents

Someone I know bought that car. My first thought about it was its too small. But he's 6ft 2in tall. Seems to manage with it quite well. 

The car is still new so it's tough make any comments about it. However, I have heard enough horror stories about the 1ltr engines of VW group. That's the only reason I would stay away from 1ltr VWs and Audis. There 1.4ltr engines seem to be very popular here in UK. In fact the Audis are the most popular cars in the area where I live. I have actually never seen a T-Cross in UK roads yet.

I saw 3 T Cross vehicles here in SL so far. All around Colombo.

Appreciate the input @Crosswind.  I'll have to wait it out to see how reliable the engines are. Thanks again.
