Find out what a member of the sales team had to say about this brilliant vehicle:
"Finished in Urano Grey colour, the solid effect of this paintwork is further radiated by a number of gloss black & chrome accents around the bodywork to give it a premium look.
"This "SE" variant will boast a wealthy list of standard features to make daily commutes easier than ever, along with a couple of factory-fitted extras, that will certainly put a smile on your face.
"The striking look of the Urano Grey paint will be further enhanced by a set of head-turning 17" Clayton Alloy Wheels – if that wasn't enough, the optionally-fitted Black Exterior Mirror Housings with go together beautifully with the Black Roof Rails, Gloss Black Front Grille and Window Surrounds, to really complete the look of this city crossover.
"The 1.0TSI turbo petrol unit developing 115PS of power, mated to a slick 6-Speed Leather-Wrapped Transmission, will offer the best balance of efficient mobility whilst still retaining ample power when you need to overtake.
"Stylish Automatic Headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights will keep you illuminated on the road day and night with the added convenience of Rain-Sensitive Wipers too.
"You will be pleased to hear this T-Cross SE has also been upgraded with factory-fitted Front & Rear Parking Sensors, which will offer audible & visual cues, projected through the car's large 8" Composition Media System, to ensure you never scratch those lovely bumpers.
"Perhaps one of the key benefits of this Volkswagen T-Cross SE, is the sheer number of assistance systems available, that will offer an additional level protection to you and your occupants.
"Front Assist city emergency braking will scan the road ahead to try and minimize risk of a collision, whilst Lane Assist lane-keeping system, will identify road markings/road edges to correct your position on the road.
"It can even actively take over the steering wheel to do this! Other great systems will include Side Assist blind spot monitoring in the wing mirrors along with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
"The latter will certainly appeal to those needing a relaxing and comfortable motorway cruiser, allowing you to sit back and relax, thanks to the system being able to maintain specific speed & distance from the vehicle in front.
"Upon entering this T-Cross, you will be greeted by a funky modern interior with a cloth upholstery finished in "Triangle Ties/Pearl" design, fully complemented by "Pineapple" decorative inserts in dash and doors.
"This two-tone decor of the cabin with light headlining and those decorative inserts, really makes the car feel bigger and brighter somehow – but don't take my word for it, come and see the car for yourself.
"The 8" Composition Media infotainment system will have all your entertainment needs covered with an array of media – DAB Digital Radio, Bluetooth Telephony & Audio as well as "App-Connect" AppleCarPlay and AndroidAuto connectivity for your smartphone, giving you access to mapping from the likes of Apple Maps, Google Maps or Waze or stream your favourite music from iTunes, Amazon Music to name a few.
"The system will even allow you to optimize the sound speaker system, by selecting where the sound focuses on in the cabin or adjusting the Bass, Mid or Treble for ideal sound quality that suits you.
"Other great features will include a Leather-Wrapped Multifunction Steering Wheel, easy to use Air Conditioning, 2x USB inputs in front & rear as well as Electric/Heated Wing Mirrors with all-round Electric Windows for everyone to enjoy."
