Looking at the French web site (see link below) it would appear that only the SEL and First Edition get a folding seat as standard, but it's anybody's guess if that applies to the UK. I've not got any more information from the dealer on the First Edition that I have ordered than the limited 2 page promotional information that appeared on the web site. My car is due at the dealers next week, having arrived in Sheerness on 21 March. I'll have a better idea in a weeks time!

Really looking to hearing your feedback on the car when you get it. It will be a surprise if it has the folding front passenger seat. Let us know if you get the Driver Profile Selection. I found it quite useful in the Arona I test drove but others think it does not offer much.
Make sure you ask about the Data Plug - meant to be supplied free I think and gives helpful car data via VW Connect app.

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?.
Can I ask which dealer that was please? I've called several and been told 'end of April' for demonstrators.

We test drove an Arona 1.0 115 DSG and liked the handling/performance, but my wife didn't find the seats comfortable. T-Cross comes with lumbar support but want to try sitting in one before buying.

Camberley Volkswagen & Windrush Slough both have demo cars.
Slough has an R Line in the showroom in Met turquoise Blue also a White First Edition.
Camberley has a Met Silver SE.
Hope this helps.

Latest on the above !.
Email from VW today to say the Folding Seat is not an option on UK spec cars.
Due to Right Hand drive, modification needed.
Great shame , looses some versatility.

Thanks again for the tip, we sat in the R-Line in Slough and the SE in Camberley, and had a look around the First edition. Think we will be ordering an SEL based on spec - R-Line does look great but don’t like the black headlining and don’t want 18 inch wheels. For anyone considering Beats, the sub woofer means you can’t lower the boot floor and you lose a lot of space as a result.

Overall thought it was much nicer than the Arona, though as reviews state the material quality is a step down from the Polo and what we have in our Mk2 Tiguan.
