Yes, you still have your standard analogue. gauges flanked by a digital trip computer in the center which is pretty simple, then you have the infotainment screen which doubles as your reversing camera which has Android and Apple capabilities and your simple air controls but it's the edge obvious color that's on the dash which extends to the small panels on the door that really make it stand out, whether you get this purple, red, white or gray tribute color, these panels will match the exterior color of the T- Cross. Now, to achieve this, they had to maintain a lot more. let's say durable plastics in the front Oh and one last thing, the seats are quite original, the color option is really nice, reminds me of the Netflix cartoon, the Mitchells against the machines, right?
You see it, Jack, you see it well, come on. I've never seen it. What do you mean you've never seen it? You suck with such a unique exterior and interior to be honest. I was expecting more aggressive driving, but actually the six-speed automatic transmission feels more like a CVT and when you're on the highway, you feel like you need to step on the gas just to keep up with all the other cars on the road. The good news is that when you get back to the city, where there is traffic - and let's face it, there will always be traffic - your fuel consumption figures will still be pretty good.
Sound insulation is good in the city. Noisier vehicles will obviously still make their presence known here, but as far as road and engine noise goes, it's not a big problem on the highway. Expect wind noise to reach the interior of the cabin at upwards of 80 to 85 kilometers per hour. The steering is actually very, very light, almost to the point where you think you're playing a video game. Jack's words are not mine, I do not mean that he is indifferent. not from the road, not at all, eh, but look, this is not a sports car, it is not made for the Nurburgring, it is not made for taking tight corners at high speed, it is more like getting in your car, getting to where you need to go daily. no problems, it's not a gti, it's a small crossover, it's primarily a city car, it drives more submissively on rougher and uneven roads, it doesn't send a jolt through the cabin when going over milder bumps, that He said, however, when turning corners or at speed, there is an apparent body roll, but that is not what a crossover is, since we are currently in the middle of summer, we are in the middle of the city, the sun and The heat outside is ridiculous and we have air. turned on pretty loud and it's on high because well let's face it I have a panoramic sunroof this is the se variant so I thought that wouldn't actually be a problem within the s variant where you don't have a panoramic sunroof yeah Sure, if that's your thing, but I mean, look at it, it's so pretty, like I mentioned before, with the steering and the ride, it really belongs in the city, it has a smooth transmission and a comfortable cabin to keep the driver and passengers feel fatigued.
And combined with good fuel economy, the T-Cross fits the bill for what could be your next daily driver within the metro. The

2021

t-cross starts at 1 million and 68,000 Philippine pesos for the s model and then this variant is 1 million. 168,000 Php now, in that price range, you have a lot of options in the market, but if you want a car that is definitely unique inside and out with great fuel economy, then this is your choice, but between the two , the s and the se. At only 100,000 pesos difference, I would probably lean towards the SE because you get more safety equipment, a better infotainment screen, and a panoramic sunroof, no guess work.
