Folding Passenger seat

Post by Exeforde » Sun Mar 24, 2019 2:55 pm

Hello there, has anyone found out if this is standard or will it be available as an option.
Can’t find out any info on this feature.
Looking to order an SEL model soon.

It would appear that on the VW German web site configurator the folding seat is not available on their base model but is standard on the other models.

Good question Exeforde - there are a number of features that are ‘missing’! They have sorted the spare wheel thankfully.
The folding front passenger seat would be very useful so hopefully, as IWRA suggests, it may be standard on SE and above.
There is also nothing about the ability to wirelessly charge your mobile using a mat in the centre console - that would be useful too.
Drive mode select is not mentioned either - I am hoping that too is standard for the SEL.
Finally something called ‘DataPlug’ is mentioned in the price list in the S section - is that standard fit or do you have to pay for it?
As I said in a previous post, early adopters just have to grin and bear it!

Drive mode select is a £140 optional extra on all models.

Drive mode select is mentioned, as you say, at £140, in the pricelist but nowhere to be found on the configurator or standard equipment. Could you explain where you found that? Thanks.

It's on the price list dated 5 March which I downloaded at that time.

I would be happier if this option appeared on the Configurator. When my dealer looked for it on the official Configurator it was not available. It could be that the price list is wrong in that it should show as an option for the S model and standard for SE and upwards. Anyway time will tell - it will be interesting to see if the first edition cars come with this option.

I recieved this reply to my enquiry:-

Thank you for contacting Volkswagen Customer Services.

I can confirm the folding passenger seat is a standard feature of the Volkswagen T-Cross.

i hope the info in the link is current, it's dated July 2018.
It also mentions the choice of a 150ps (1.5 ) engine which isn't happening yet. Probably not a bad thing given the problems that are being reported on the T Roc.
Regarding the Drive Mode Select, I have it as standard on my Q2 with a DSG gearbox, and to be honest never use it. In sports mode it does make the steering heavier, and hold the gears longer, but does not change the suspension. A similar action can be obtained by just pulling back on the gear lever whilst in drive. This was the same on my Polo SEL.
I just leave it in comfort mode, but then I am an old man.

Hope his helps

Visited my dealer yesterday & drove the SE, the SEL arrives next week.
Loved the car, drove really well, But NO folding passenger seat & no option to order it.
What a stupid thing to omit, takes away that extra versatility.
The dealer thought it might be to do with left & right hand drive etc
Glass roof is only available in country’s like Brazil !.
Anyone else had the same situation?.
