Further changes are focused on the headlights. They receive redesigned graphics as well as LED operation as standard. In a move that brings it into line with other recent new Volkswagen models, the facelifted T-Cross also adopts an LED light bar within a revised grille.

At the rear, there are new-look tail-lights within a full-width cluster, with the Style and R-Line models receiving individual X-shape graphics.

The rear bumper has also been redesigned, with a silver-coloured kick plate mirroring the look at the front.

Buyers can optionally order the facelifted T-Cross with Volkswagen’s IQ Light system with adaptive matrix functionality.
