Volkswagen T-Cross here this year

T-Cross joins Tiguan and Touareg in VW SUV range

13 March 2019 | Motors
In the second half of this year, Volkswagen will introduce its first compact SUV. The T-Cross will join the Tiguan and Touareg in the Volkswagen SUV model range and advances the company’s offensive strategy in the growing SUV segment.

In 2018, the compact SUV segment constituted 8.7 % of the total market. Where most segments have shrunk, the compact SUV segment grew year-on-year from 2014 to 2018. In 2014, the segment accounted for 19 027 of new vehicle sales, whilst in 2018, the sales volume increased to 31 982 units, which equates to a 68% growth. This is one of the many reasons that attracted Volkswagen to the segment.

The T-Cross is based on the same MQB platform as the new Polo and slots into the Volkswagen product portfolio under the Tiguan.

The vehicle is 4 237 mm long, with a wheelbase of 2 551 mm. While it is a compact SUV, the T-Cross is practical with 377 litres of boot space. This can be expanded to 455 litres if the second row of seats is moved forward. By folding the rear seats flat, the carrying capacity is increased to 1 281 litres.

Kitted and fitted

A host of standard and optional driver assistance features will be available in the T-Cross.

The T-Cross will be available with optional LED headlights and wheel sizes of up to 18 inches. The interior of the T-Cross is similar to that of the new Polo and will be offered with optional Active Info Display.

Volkswagen’s compact SUV is great value for money with a starting price below N$300 000.

The T-Cross will be available for pre-orders from the second half of the year and will be available in the Southern African market towards the end of the year.

In 2020, Volkswagen will add another SUV model in the line-up for the Southern African market. The premium, sporty and stylish T-Roc, which is the first Volkswagen SUV that is available to order in two-tone paintwork, will make its way into the local market next year. - MotorPress
