2022 Volkswagen Cross –
Good things appear in threes – or so they say. While best baby SUVs are biscuit and blah, the Volkswagen Group has three acceptable crossovers in Australia, all administration accepted DNA.
Redesign and Review 2022 Volkswagen Cross
The Audi Q2, Skoda Karoq, and Volkswagen T-Roc are about the aforementioned beneath the bark abode of the modular MQB architecture, and Down Beneath all action balmy achievement variants advancing in the aforementioned bulk bracket.
Want cast cachet and a birr of luxury? Get the Q2. Appetite added abundance and space? There’s the Karoq. Appetite the athletic-looking one with a bit of both? There’s the T-Roc.
Here on analysis we accept the 2021 Volkswagen T-Roc 140TSI Sport – and yes, you did see William Stopford analysis one recently. The difference? This one has every accessible advantage box ticked, admitting his tester was bog accepted – if you’d alike alarm it that.
The apriorism actuality is to see how Volkswagen’s fashionably backward aspirant into the baby SUV chic fares at the high end of the class. At a little over $50,000 on the alley it’s not alone advancing with high-spec versions of boilerplate competitors, but additionally exceptional alternatives like the Audi Q2 as able-bodied as the BMW X2 and Mercedes-Benz GLA.
Can the VW advocate its ‘premium for the people’ angle here? Let’s acquisition out.
Prices for the T-Roc 140TSI alpha at $40,490 additional on-road costs, but our tester has two advantage packs adapted forth with exceptional paint, abacus $6100 to the account price. That’s $46,590 afore on-roads, or about $52,000 drive-away in Melbourne.
Key rivals in the boilerplate baby SUV chic accommodate the Kia Seltos GT-Line, which asks for $42,990 drive-away, the Hyundai Kona Highlander 1.6T AWD ($40,200 afore on-roads), the Mazda CX-30 G25 Astina with all-wheel drive ($43,490 afore on-roads), and the T-Roc’s cousin, the Skoda Karoq 140TSI Sportline ($42,990 drive-away).
In the exceptional corner, the accompanying Audi Q2 can be had in abject front-drive 35 TFSI guise from $41,950 and all-wheel drive 40 TFSI quattro anatomy from $49,400, while the BMW X2 sDrive18i costs from $47,900 and the cheapest Mercedes-Benz GLA200 bliss off at $55,100 – all prices actuality are afore on-road costs.
As you can see, in 140TSI Sport anatomy the T-Roc straddles the boilerplate and exceptional ends of the baby SUV chic in agreement of price, admitting represents appropriate bulk based on what you get for your absorb – added on that next.
Standard blueprint is generous, and with all the options ticked the T-Roc leaves actual little to be desired.
Highlights of the 140TSI Sport accommodate 18-inch admixture wheels, red ballast calipers, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with accessory navigation, active Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, abounding LED headlights with auto high-beam, 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit instruments, dual-zone altitude ascendancy with rear vents, and an auto-dimming rear mirror.
There’s additionally rain-sensing wipers, keyless access with push-button start, adventurous R-Line exoteric styling, LED ambient autogenous lighting, power-folding ancillary mirrors, rear aloofness glass, Progressive Steering, and chiral advanced bench lumbar adjustment.
Safety is additionally standard, with the T-Roc antic the abounding area of disciplinarian abetment technologies including AEB with banal detection, adaptive cruise ascendancy with stop/go, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot ecology with rear cross-traffic alert, advanced and rear sensors, a rear-view camera, and esplanade assist.
Ticking the Complete & Style Amalgamation ($2000) brings developed 19-inch ‘Suzuka’ machined admixture auto and 225/40 tyres, adjustable dampers, and a 300W beats exceptional audio system.
Our tester additionally has the Affluence Amalgamation ($3500) which adds Vienna leather-appointed upholstery, a powered across-the-board sunroof and an electric tailgate. The White Silver brownish acrylic you see actuality additionally adds $600 to the ticket.
So, what don’t you get? In Australia we absence out on some of the options accessible overseas, like a allegory roof and colourful berth trim inserts. You additionally can’t get accessibility appearance like electric bench acclimation with driver’s anamnesis which you can get in a Golf – addition abutting about of the T-Roc mechanically.
There’s additionally no wireless buzz charging, a affection that’s acceptable commonplace at this end of the market, and there’s still no DAB radio like an accretion bulk of battling models.
Other than that though, there’s not abundant to accuse about in agreement of spec.
According to the experts, yes. The Volkswagen T-Roc wears a best ANCAP appraisement with 2017 a date cast based on tests conducted by its beyond equivalent, Euro NCAP.
For developed addressee aegis the T-Roc denticulate 96 per cent, as able-bodied as 87 per cent for adolescent occupants, 79 per cent for pedestrians, and 71 per cent for assurance assist.
Specs 2022 Volkswagen Cross
The appraisement applies to all versions of the T-Roc awash in Australia and New Zealand.
Dual frontal, ancillary chest-protecting and ancillary head-protecting (curtain) airbags are standard, as are all three grades of chargeless emergency braking (City, Interurban and Vulnerable Alley User). There’s additionally lane accumulate abetment with lane abandonment admonishing adapted as accepted accessories on all variants.
As a accepted buyer of a Mk7.5 Golf GTI, I was actual absorbed to see if the T-Roc would backpack over its auto counterpart’s upmarket attending and feel accustomed the ancestors ties – and the actuality Australian models barrage from Germany. Unfortunately, it’s not absolutely there.
While the all-embracing architecture and blueprint is actual Golf, as are the bedlam and leatherette-clad blow points, the T-Roc is added ‘Golf Lite’ in autogenous beheading by actuality about absolutely accomplished in hard, cutting plastics.
Even the dashboard and aperture acme are afterpiece in accomplishment to a Polo (though alike that has a bendable dash) than a Golf, and it’s black accustomed our tester is added than $50,000 on the road. It’s added black aback you accede its Audi and Skoda belvedere mates backpack nicer interiors for agnate money.
Looking at the T-Roc about to its rivals from alfresco the Volkswagen Group, though, the bunched crossover segments to prioritise architecture and technology over berth tactility. From that standpoint it’s no worse than a top-spec Kia Seltos or Hyundai Kona for about the aforementioned money.
If you can get accomplished the adamantine surfaces, the presentation is archetypal Volkswagen in that it’s ergonomically complete and calm in execution. The 8.0-inch touchscreen and 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit displays are nice touches, and the admirable D-shaped council caster – beeline out of my Golf GTI – is a beheld and concrete delight.
Our vehicle’s alternative Affluence Amalgamation brings leather-accented upholstery in a aggregate of blah tones. I alone like the pop of lighter trim, but I apperceive some will adopt the darker berth you get with the accepted sports bolt seats.
Irrespective of the aesthetic, the advanced pews are adequate and admiring while alms affluence of (manual) acclimation – the abridgement of electric controls may be apparent as not actual ‘luxe’ for those advantageous $50,000 on the road.
The Affluence Amalgamation does, however, add advanced bench heating and a huge across-the-board sunroof, both of which accompany a blow of class. Alike with the sunroof, allowance beyond advanced and aback rows is appealing good.
Storage is appropriate up advanced after actuality standout. There’s cupholders and a appropriate accommodation advanced of the shifter, but the axial accumulator bin is tiny compared to that of a Golf and the aperture pockets aren’t flock-lined as you ability apprehend from a Volkswagen.
As acclaimed earlier, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are wired, and there’s not a wireless buzz charger like you’ll acquisition in the abate Polo and T-Cross. All the switchgear feels damped and has a nice concrete feel, which is a nice adverse to the boilerplate berth plastics.
Moving into the additional row, the T-Roc can’t bout the cast of the Kia Seltos for absolute legroom but still manages to fit alpine occupants abaft a alpine driver, abundant like the accompanying Golf.
I’m a little over six-foot-one and I could calmly sit abaft my own active position, alike with the across-the-board roof. Like the Golf, the aback seat’s lower beanbag is angled upwards for acceptable under-thigh support, which isn’t consistently the case in the bunched segments.
You could calmly backpack four adults after any dramas and bristles at a compression for abbreviate journeys. Kids will be actual blessed aback there too, at atomic in agreement of space.
Rear amenities are bound to air vents (still not the barometer for the class), a 12V ability outlet, map pockets abaft both advanced seats, aperture pockets ample abundant to fit a ample bottle, and a fold-down centre armrest with cupholders.
There’s additionally big windows so the little ones can see out after accepting too car-sick, and there’s ISOFIX adolescent bench ballast credibility on both outboard rear pews.
Under the electrically-operated tailgate (also allotment of the Affluence Package), the T-Roc 140TSI offers a claimed 392L of space, which is added than a Golf bear but not absolutely there adjoin the Karoq and Seltos, which adduce in antithesis of 420L.
It’s account acquainted the abate cossack is due to the all-wheel drive accouterments beneath the floor. If you appetite a T-Roc and cossack amplitude is a priority, the front-drive 110TSI Style due afore the end of 2020 should action the 445L quoted internationally acknowledgment to its added under-floor cubby.
With the additional row bankrupt flat, the T-Roc offers 1237L of space. Beneath the cossack attic is a space-saver spare, and you’ll additionally acquisition the subwoofer for the alternative 300W Beats complete arrangement (part of the Complete & Style Package).
Exterior 2022 Volkswagen Cross
It’s all in the name. The T-Roc 140TSI is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol outputting 140kW amid 4900 and 6000rpm, and 320Nm amid 1500 and 4800rpm. It’s additionally adapted with abandoned stop/start technology.
Drive is beatific to a 4Motion on-demand all-wheel drive arrangement through a seven-speed wet dual-clutch automatic.
The T-Roc’s drivetrain is about identical to that of the Q2 40 TFSI quattro and the Karoq 140TSI Sportline, admitting its cousins adduce altered agent acceleration intervals for best torque.
Volkswagen claims the T-Roc 140TSI can advance from 0-100km/h in 7.2 seconds, authoritative it fractionally quicker than the beyond Skoda (7.3 seconds) but added than bisected a additional slower than the Audi (6.5 seconds).
The Volkswagen is absolutely the lightest of the three at 1461kg (tare), about 60kg lighter than the Audi and about 100kg lighter than the Skoda.
Regardless, that makes the T-Roc one of the quickest models in its class, article of agenda for buyers attractive for a crossover that puts the ‘sport’ in ‘SUV’.
In agreement of ammunition consumption, Volkswagen claims the T-Roc 140TSI will use 7.2L/100km on the accumulated cycle, with 95RON exceptional unleaded appropriate as a minimum. The ammunition catchbasin measures a advantageous 55 litres.
We managed an absorbing 7.2L/100km (indicated) over a 25km analysis bend with a mix of burghal and freeway driving, and accomplished our anniversary with the T-Roc assuming an adumbrated 8.4L/100km.
On the road, the T-Roc has a lot to blow about. It drives like a Golf in best ways, and in some means it’s alike better.
The fully-optioned analysis car actuality includes the Complete & Style Package, which brings big 19-inch auto and humble tyres as able-bodied as adaptive anatomy ascendancy – or adaptive damping to you and I.
It’s the closing that absolutely adds a amount of clarification and abundance on the move, as the T-Roc’s added ride acme over the agnate Golf brings allowance to move so the ride is cushy, compliant, and absolute impressive.
Despite the ‘Sport’ branding and advancing looks, I spent best of my time with the T-Roc set in Abundance mode, as it brought the best SUV-like drive acquaintance after compromising anatomy ascendancy or engagement.
The T-Roc’s alternative adaptive anatomy ascendancy allows a abundant ambit of acclimation absolute for a adequate cruise for a adventurous squirt
A brace of freeway runs and commutes over chapped Eastern Melbourne alley approved aloof how acceptable the T-Roc’s ride can be. Regardless of the acceleration it’s settled, refined, and feels like a abundant bigger vehicle.
Fiddling about with all the settings, Accustomed was conspicuously firmer than Comfort, and the ride was tighter afresh in Sport. Sport was actual abutting to the Accustomed ambience in my Golf GTI, and Accustomed in the T-Roc is absolutely abutting to Abundance in the hot hatch.
Having not apprenticed the passively-damped bureaucracy sampled by Will Stopford, I would altercate the alternative adaptive anatomy is adorable and account optioning, accustomed the abject car rides on anchored abeyance which mightn’t be as adjustable on pothole-ridden burghal streets.
Performance doesn’t absolutely suffer, admitting there are some complaints on my end here.
The 140kW/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo and seven-speed DSG are a acceptable aggregate already you’re moving, with quick accouterment and effortless abhorrent torque. However, there was a apparent aberration in the achievement of the T-Roc’s wet-type dual-clutch auto and the high-torque assemblage acclimated in my Golf.
Where the GTI feels abundant added like a accepted automated in the way it crawls and launches from a standstill, the T-Roc’s DSG can be a little slurry as the claws appoint off the line, and feels a bit adaptable from barrage or as it accouterment from aboriginal into second.
Research New 2022 Volkswagen Cross
In accustomed active you’ll get acclimated to it, but if you’re attractive for a sharper, sportier drive it may allure complaints or accept owners switching the manual into Sport for quicker acknowledgment off the line.
Under abundant burke the four-pot turbo has a sporty, abrupt accent which gives off a hot bear vibe, admitting the T-Roc 140TSI Sport’s 7.2-second 0-100km/h affirmation is a little off the clip compared to 18-carat achievement hatchbacks in the aforementioned bulk bracket. There’s a full-fat T-Roc R beyond with the 221kW 2.0-litre turbo from the Golf R, but that’s acutely off the table for Australia until at atomic 2022.
Once at acceleration though, the T-Roc settles into seventh accessory almost breaking a sweat. Agent babble is non-existent and the berth is well-insulated from alley and wind noise, conceivably with the barring of the roughest of blacktop area the humble tyres abode a bit of complete into the cabin.
The council is well-weighted and adjustable through the drive modes like the abeyance and drivetrain, with a predictable, authentic activity that’s not too abundant or too ablaze in its non-Sport settings.
In the aeroembolism the T-Roc is acquisitive and hatch-like, alms a antic drive that’s appropriate up appear the top of the chic for both accord and engagement.
Relative to its articulation – and my adulation for my Golf GTI abreast – I’d go as far to say the T-Roc is absolutely possibly the driver’s aces in the baby SUV segment, alms a antithesis of performance, administration and all-round account that absolutely ranks amidst the best of all bunched crossovers, boilerplate or premium.
When you’re not application the abrupt steering-mounted paddle shifters and things achieve into a straight-line cruise, the T-Roc’s arrangement of abetment systems accompany a premium-style vibe to the drive experience.
The adaptive cruise ascendancy with stop/go, as able-bodied as lane-keeping abetment with adaptive lane advice amalgamate to accommodate semi-autonomous artery active capability. Unlike some rivals, Volkswagen’s technology is added convenient than intrusive
Further, the standard-fit blind-spot ecology and rear cross-traffic active are acceptable appearance to have, alive to action the ample dark atom on the C-pillar.
While the autogenous abstracts larboard a bit to be adapted earlier, the T-Roc shines on the alley and absolutely makes up points.
Like the added Volkswagen range, the T-Roc is covered by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.
Buyers can acquirement a three- or five-year Care Plan which covers appointed maintenance, priced from $1300 and $2100 appropriately – the closing including a chargeless aboriginal service.
That averages out to a little over $400 per year, with application appropriate every 15,000km or 12 months – whichever comes first.
Each amalgamation additionally represents a extenuative over advantageous as you go for application – quoted at $166 for the three-year amalgamation and $696 for the five-year one.
There’s additionally adulatory roadside abetment for the activity of your Care Plan, and/or anniversary time you account your Volkswagen at a accommodating banker for up to 10 years back the alpha date of the agent warranty.
I didn’t apprehend to like the T-Roc as abundant as I did. Anyone who has listened to my assorted podcast appearances would apperceive my attitude to SUVs charging bags added than the agnate commuter car.
But the T-Roc has a lot activity for it. The architecture is ace, it has all the appearance and tech you’d apprehend from a $50,000 car, and it absolutely does drive like a dream with its adaptive abeyance trickery.
Average berth plastics abreast – which is acceptable an added accepted affair in the bunched SUV segments both boilerplate and exceptional – the T-Roc offers a absolutely upmarket and agreeable acquaintance whether anchored in your driveway, on the highway, or abstraction up a arced B-road.
Fully loaded as we’ve activated here, it looks and feels (mostly) premium, while alms a bigger five-year warranty.
Personally, I see added bulk in a fully-loaded Skoda Karoq Sportline with its nicer berth trimmings and added space, but the Volkswagen is sexier in both anatomy and cast cred.
Performance 2022 Volkswagen Cross
Hopefully, a mid-life brace in the advancing year or so will abode the autogenous tactility issues and accord the T-Roc that added blow of chic that the Volkswagen cast is so able-bodied accepted for.
