Volkswagen has added a new, range-topping turbo petrol engine to its T-Cross compact SUV.

The 1.5 TSI 150 is the most powerful unit yet available in the Nissan Juke rival. Transmitting its power through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, it enables the T-Cross to cover 0-62mph in 8.5sec.

This represents a significant 1.7sec gain on the previous range-topping variant, the 1.0 TSI 115. The 1.5-litre engine also has an improved top speed of 124mph. Despite this extra swiftness, the new model matches the 44.0mpg fuel economy of the 1.0-litre engine.
