The Volkswagen Polo, T-Cross and T-Roc ranges have all been bolstered by a new ‘United’ trim level, which promises more equipment and better value than SE and Match trims.
All three get exclusive ‘United’ badging inside and out, new alloy wheels and upholstery, and a winter pack, with heated front seats and a warning when you’re running low on screen wash.
The Polo supermini also features an eight-inch touchscreen with sat nav, automatic wipers and headlights, and an auto-dimming rear view mirror. Two 1.0-litre petrol engines are available; the entry-level naturally aspirated 79hp 1.0-litre engine and a 94hp turbocharged engine of the same size. Both have five-speed manual gearboxes but you can specify a seven-speed automatic for the more powerful engine. Polo United models start at £17,350, which is only around £300 more than the equivalent Match trim level.
Based on the SE trims, the T-Cross and T-Roc United models both gain heated washer jets and tinted rear windows. The T-Cross also benefits from front and rear parking sensors, while T-Roc drivers get puddle lights that shine ‘United’ branding onto the floor when the doors are opened. At £20,410, the T-Cross United is £200 more than the SE trim, while the T-Roc United starts at £23,550.
You can order the T-Cross with the 94hp 1.0-litre engine or a 113hp version of the same engine, which gets a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearboxes. The T-Roc can be ordered with the 113hp engine and a manual gearbox or a 1.5-litre 148hp petrol with a choice of transmissions.
