Volkswagen T-Cross Black Edition
  • Prices start from £21,035 
  • Equipment worth £2,000 for £500 
  • Attractive design and spacious interior 

Say hello to the Volkswagen T-Cross Black Edition, a special, high-spec version of the German brand’s smallest crossover that has a starting price of £21,035. 

The Black Edition is based on the existing SE trim level but features some extras that Volkswagen says are worth £2,000 but only add £500 to the cost of a T-Cross in SE form.

The T-Cross Black Edition has black roof rails and door mirror housings, black trim across the front grille and bumper, and tinted rear windows. A set of 17-inch diamond turned alloy wheels and LED headlights complete the look. 

Inside, the black theme continues with gloss black and platinum dashboard trim, sports seats, and a set of matching front and rear carpet mats. The Black Edition also maintains the T-Cross’s sliding rear bench, which slides up to 14cm to facilitate 70 litres of extra boot space or provide extra legroom for rear-seat passengers.

As it’s based on the SE model – the bestseller – the Black Edition comes with a generous package of standard equipment. Features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and lane-keep assist. Also included is App-Connect, bringing smartphone mirroring to the car’s connectivity features. Volkswagen has added front and rear parking sensors as part of the extras. 

The T-Cross Black Edition can also be specced with a few options, including two-zone climate control (£875), a digital gauge cluster (£385) and a 300-watt, six-speaker Beats stereo system (£445).

In terms of engines, there are two versions of a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol to choose from. The cheapest model has a power output of 94bhp and comes with a five-speed manual gearbox.

The more powerful option produces 108bhp and features a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. Prices start from £21,800 and buyers can go for a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for an extra £1,500.

All three engine and gearbox combinations offer low running costs, with combined fuel consumption and CO2 emissions figures of 48.7mpg and 132g/km for both manual models, and 44.1mpg and 145g/km for the 108bhp, seven-speed automatic.
