VW is working hard to come back from the diesel emission scandal and with the raging popularity of crossovers, we knew VW was getting into that market.
VW’s crossover is now official and it is called the T-Cross promising to combine the “dominance of an SUV with the dynamism of a compact hatchback.” The T-Cross will be packed with safety tech including Front Assist with City Emergency Braking and Lane Assist as standard equipment.
T-Cross is a 5-seater SUV promising small exterior dimensions combined with plenty of seating and 445 liters of boot space. The 60/40 split folding rear seats can be laid down to get 1,290 liters of storage space when needed. VW will offer lots of customization option with T-Cross Style version getting two-tone paint standard.
Volkswagen SA has added that it’s compact SUV is a great value for money; with the starting price of the T-Cross said to be below R300 000.
The T-Cross will be available for pre-orders from the second half of the year and will officially be launched into the South African market towards the end of the year.
