Currently reading: 2024 Volkswagen T-Cross brings upmarket interior, styling tweaks
Entry-level crossover gets revised front end and new infotainment system running upgraded software

The updated Volkswagen T-Cross has been unveiled ahead of its planned UK market introduction during the first quarter of 2024.

The sister model to the Seat Arona and Skoda Kamiq receives a number of subtle exterior styling changes, including a new-look front bumper featuring redesigned daytime driving lights on either side, a larger central duct and a silver-coloured kick plate within its lower section.

Further changes are focused on the headlights. They receive redesigned graphics as well as LED operation as standard. In a move that brings it into line with other recent new Volkswagen models, the facelifted T-Cross also adopts an LED light bar within a revised grille.

At the rear, there are new-look tail-lights within a full-width cluster, with the Style and R-Line models receiving individual X-shape graphics.

The rear bumper has also been redesigned, with a silver-coloured kick plate mirroring the look at the front.

Buyers can optionally order the facelifted T-Cross with Volkswagen's IQ Light system with adaptive matrix functionality.

It also comes in three new exterior colours: Grape Yellow, Clear Blue Metallic and Kings Red Metallic.

2024 Volkswagen T-Cross dashboard

The interior of the T-Cross has been also reworked for 2024. Along with a revised dashboard and door trims featuring softer-touch materials, it receives digital instruments as standard. 

The base T-Cross and Life versions feature an 8.0in display, while the Style and R-Line versions adopt a 10in display as part of a new Digital Cockpit system.

There are also new infotainment touchscreens measuring 8.0in in the T-Cross and Life models and 9.2in in the Style and R-Line models. The MIB software controlling the screen has also been updated.

T-Cross models equipped with the optional Climamatic air-conditioning system also receive digital displays together with touch and slider controls.

Nothing much to see here. Still boring. The sad part is it could look good at the front if they were just a little braver maybe angle the lights down with the angle of the bumper. The dash looks offal boring and cheap and as for the rear well its just boring but hey at least the yellow looks good. Might not sell many yellow ones but it's a nice yellow so fair play to VW for that.
