Don’t be fooled by the stance of the new Volkswagen Cross this is not a new Polo-based SUV with drive. Though it does more ground clearance the regular hatchback, think of it as of a different trim level one that looks more than the standard car. We the choice of the line-up — the model.

Volkswagen CrossPolo

We ignore the bright orange It divided opinion pretty Called Magma Orange, unique to the Cross Polo, as is a more conservative Terra metallic. We like how the orange with the new plastic cladding on the which integrates with wheelarches and a bespoke front Silver roof rails and casings set it apart from Polos too, as do the standard five-spoke wheels — enough to go for this model might say.

The colour theme is carried to the cabin, though buyers can between Magma Orange (as Latte Macchiato or grey accents, a colour that is in the stitching on the leather steering handbrake and gear gaiter. Alcantara is available as an option. The name is emblazoned across the seats too, making the feel more special. the Cross Polo’s interior is as and well put together as any Polo’s.

Engine Transmission: 3/5

While that the Irish market is price sensitive, it’s a shame that the Cross isn’t offered with the TSI petrol engine available in Europe — it’d be a option. Instead there’s a of two 1.2-litre units — one and one petrol. The latter is the venerable three-cylinder unit, as tested, and it is eager to rev, it’s to show its age — certainly in of refinement. The new Volkswagen up! has more for less capacity — and much quieter.

A five-speed gearbox is standard regardless of engine you go for. It’s smooth and easy to use.

Ride Handling: 4/5

Some may wonder if the extra height of the Polo will alter its behaviour, but the changes are minimal Overall it’s only higher, with just of that in the ride height. it drives just like any Polo, which means competent in the bends and agile town, yet it rides like a car, with decent on the motorway and great bump The only negative comes the extra road noise by the wider tyres. It’s you’ll not notice away the motorway.

Equipment, Economy for Money: 3/5

At a starting price of on-the-road, the Cross Polo is not a car, but it does feel different to the regular Polo A basic Golf can be had for the same but the Cross Polo is far more to look at. The petrol version is the option unless you really do up high mileage, as, though the TDI engine is more economical and sits in Band A for tax — it is raucous.

Standard equipment on the regular includes a leather steering handbrake lever and gear a radio-CD stereo with electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, 15-inch alloys, fog lights, ESP and electric front The Cross Polo significantly that specification by adding the alloys, unique interior including colour-coded stitching and seats, air conditioning, electric windows and the other exterior
