T-Cross Brings Euro Class In A Compact Package

Volkswagen’s T-Cross enters showrooms in April priced from $27,990 – the brand’s most affordable ever SUV and the first German entrant in its segment.

T-Cross represents both the entry point and the completion of Volkswagen’s SUV range, which now runs from this urban oriented model through the T-Roc, Tiguan, Tiguan Allspace and Touareg ranges.

T-Cross arrives in two versions – 85TSI Life ($27,990) and 85TSI Style ($30,990) – powered by the Volkswagen Group’s feisty 1.0-litre 3 cylinder turbo petrol engine that puts out 85kW and 200Nm through a 7-speed DSG transmission and the front wheels. A third version – the 110TSI Style with a 1.5-litre turbo-charged four cylinder engine – arrives in June with pricing to be confirmed.

The new T-Cross, along with the T-Roc SUV, can be seen by the public at the Volksfest event in Brisbane on February 16.

“The T-Cross takes Volkswagen into new territory,” says the brand’s Director of Customer Experience and Marketing and Jason Bradshaw.

“Previously Japanese and Korean brands have had this segment to themselves. To say that none can touch the T-Cross for technology is no empty boast. Now, for the first time, there is an affordable German compact SUV, one that as the Tiguan and Touareg do in their respective segments, transcends the gulf between the mass market brands and those perceived as prestige.”
