2023 Volkswagen T-Cross Owner's Manual
With the release of the updated T-Cross of the latest generation, Volkswagen confidently announced its ambitions in the B-SUV segment.
The first model of the compact crossover was released in 2019 based on the VW POLO model, a similar design of the car was used in the 2023 model.
2023 Volkswagen Taos Specification
2 gasoline units and one diesel unit are installed under the hood of the car:
- 1.0 liter three-cylinder TSI, with a capacity of 115 hp;
- 1.5-liter 4-cylinder TSI with a capacity of 150 hp;
- Turbodiesel TDI with a volume of 1.6 liters and a capacity of 95 hp.
The engines are paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a robotic 7-speed DSG DQ 200, depending on the configuration. As for the latter, the transmission is not included in the list of the best DSG models from the Volkswagen Group, but in general it leaves a positive impression, showing quite a good performance in combination with the above engines.
Despite the fact that it is a crossover, the car is offered without all-wheel drive and is available for sale exclusively in front-wheel drive versions.
The suspension in the car is quite archaic and reliable. The front axle is designed in the form of a classic McPherson, and the rear is a regular beam. Despite the incredible simplicity of the design, the car feels very confident on the road, the suspension silently works out all the unevenness of the surface. The steering does not cause any complaints either, the steering wheel is not sporty, but informative enough with a clear response and predictable control.
The Volkswagen company generously equips its cars with a wide variety of options, the T-Cross model is no exception. Already in the basic version, the Composition Color multimedia system is available with a 6.5-inch display, blind spot monitoring systems, Lane Assist and monitoring of road conditions in front of the car Front Assist.
The new player in the class fundamentally prepared to attract the attention of potential customers, deciding not to remain a middle peasant, but to compete for leadership in the segment. Thus, the T-Cross model is offered in a color scheme of 12 colors, a range of wheel rims from 16 to 18 inches and with several interior decoration variations.
Depending on the configuration, from cheaper to more expensive, the list of equipment and options becomes incredibly wide. The instrument panel of the car is equipped with a 12.5-inch LCD display with the ability to display information from the on-board computer and a navigation map.
2023 Volkswagen Taos dimensions
The VW Taos is built on the MQB-A0 platform shared with the hatchback, accordingly, the dimensions of the model are not impressive with their dimensions:
- Length – 4.23 m
- Width – 1.78 m
- Height – 1.58 m
- Wheelbase – 2.55 m
- Clearance – 18 cm
The interior of the car does not look luxurious or premium, in fact, the class of the car does not require anything extraordinary. Everything looks very simple, all controls and controls are located conveniently and intuitively. Both front and rear passengers have USB ports for charging devices or connecting to car multimedia.
Starting with the basic version, the car is equipped with a full electric package and the ability to adjust the side mirrors, which are additionally equipped with electric storage and heating. There are plenty of seats in the cabin, the possibility of moving the rear sofa to
14 cm makes it possible to increase the legroom behind or add volume to the luggage compartment, which is 385 liters.
2023 Volkswagen Taos Maintenance
Service regulations and frequency of technical work are specified in the car’s service book. The Volkswagen campaign advises its customers to service the brand’s cars exclusively at official service centers. This guarantees not only preservation of the warranty period, but also maintenance of your car under the supervision of qualified specialists, using only original spare parts.
Depending on the mileage of the vehicle, the mechanics of the center perform the following work:
• Replacement of engine oil and filters;
• computer diagnostics of the car;
• Camber adjustment;
• Maintenance and repair of the air conditioning system;
• Engine repair and inspection;
• Inspection and repair of the DSG transmission.
Summing up, we can safely say that the car fully meets expectations and can compete with more expensive cars of its class. Among which it is worth noting Renault Captur, Citroen C3 Aircross and Opel Crossland X.
The Volkswagen T-Cross car is a fairly typical representative of the brand: a variety of configurations, a brand nameplate on the radiator grill, moderate cost and painstaking work of many engineers and marketers are expressed in the general style and every detail of the updated model.
