Volkswagen made the T-Cross look tough on the exterior, the way SUV usually does. The front is made to look firm with design lines unique to Volkswagen production. The grill is layered with chrome, in line with VW’s latest releases.

The front lights are LED, and the fog lamps feature Static Cornering Light technology, which gives the driver enhanced visibility through the turn.

The car has 17-inch wheels, and they come in dual-tone color. Apart from that, T-Cross also comes with a roof rail and shark fins antennae.
