The multifaceted global SUV, Volkswagen T-Cross, is soon to arrive in the Philippines, and now it comes with a local price tag.
According to Volkswagen, during their roundtable meeting held online on April 21, the Volkswagen T-Cross is anticipated to make waves in its Philippine debut due to its worldwide success in sales and reviews from automotive experts.
Its design and engineering have been recognized around the world by award-giving bodies. The T-Cross was hailed as most notable by the BusinessCar Awards 2019 in the United Kingdom, the 2020 Continental Tyres Irish Car of the Year in Ireland, Frankfurt Motor Show 2019 in Germany, UOL Carros 2019, and L’Auto Preferita in Brazil and the 5th annual Cars.co.za Consumer Awards in South Africa.

It boasts its longest wheelbase at 2,651mm, which seats 5 people and holds 329 liters of luggage space at the back, which can further extend to 1,319 liters if the rear seats are folded. The amenities of the T-Cross include an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and App connect. Rear air-conditioning and USB sockets are also available for the back passengers.
As per Volkswagen, the T-Cross earns its 5 stars in the European, Australasian, and Latin New Car Assessment Program for its strong body structure, LED tail lights, electronic stabilization program, cruise control, and tire pressure monitoring system.
The SE variant includes 6 airbags, LED headlights, rear camera, rear park distance control, and autonomous emergency braking.
