This is the Volkswagen T-Cross Black Edition. It’s a special edition version of the German brand’s smallest crossover and is based on the model’s SE trim level, with Black edition trim featuring a handful of equipment upgrades at a trimmed-down price.
Prices for the T-Cross Black edition start from £21,035, which is only £500 much more than the SE variant. However, Volkswagen says the car’s upgrades would be worth much more than £2,000 were they individually specified.

Like the T-Cross SE, the Black edition comes as conventional with adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring and lane-keep assist, although Volkswagen has added front and rear vehicle parking sensors as part of the upgrade too.
The German brand also provides a few optional extras for the T-Cross Black Edition, including two-zone climate control (£875), a digital gauge cluster (£385) and a 300-watt, six-speaker stereo system by Beats (£445).
Buyers can choose from two turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines. The most affordable model has an output of 94bhp and comes as conventional with a five-speed manual gearbox.
Prices for the much more powerful option start from £21,800. It produces 108bhp and features a six-speed manual gearbox as standard, although buyers can choose a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission for an extra £1,500.
