Volkswagen enthusiasts can look forward to a new addition to the German line-up when the T-Cross is expected to be launched in the city on 21 September.
Volkswagen Polokwane plans to launch the new T-Cross at Meropa Casino and Entertainment World with the event starting at 10:00. Potential buyers are more than welcome to take it for a test drive and to get the real feeling of the new compact SUV’s capabilities.
The Volkswagen T-Cross was designed to be bold, confident and stand out. With features like the eye-catching LED lights and rear reflective band, it is bound to catch the eye and turn heads no matter where it is.
Seize the chance to choose from a variety of exterior colours that speak to your adventurous side.
Equipped with the latest Volkswagen safety features, the T-Cross is intuitive on the roads and built with safety as its highest priority. Safety features include Adaptive Cruise Control, Park Distance Control, Lane Assist, Blind Spot Monitor, ISOFIX for fastening children’s seats and many more features which allow the driver to play with confidence.
With the T-Cross’ stylish and spacious interior, one always have enough room to do the things one has always wanted to. The T-Cross’ adaptable rear seats are both foldable and slidable. Which means you can turn 377 litres of boot space into 455 litres of rear cabin space.
When you get into the T-Cross you are taken to a whole new level with Discover Navigation, and a colour touchscreen infotainment system. With the most advanced Volkswagen technology on offer, you can upgrade to the latest sound from Beats (optional) and drive the future with Active Info Display, which has advanced graphics to keep track of useful driving information with ease on a 12,3 inch screen.
The ultimate T-Cross comes in the ultimate package. The T-Cross R-Line upgrade is a powerfully unique design package that’s ultra-modern and even bolder. Drive the R-Line with design stand-outs like the 17” Manila alloys on the Comfortline and 18” Nevada alloys on Highline.
The ultra-connected T-Cross is right on the cutting edge of useful and playful technology. VW Connect lets your car and your digital world connect through your mobile phone using the Data Plug. It comes standard on Comfortline and Highline and is an option on Trendline. You can charge your mobile wirelessly by simply laying it in the inductive charging tray.
App-Connect brings your smartphone onto your T-Cross’ touchscreen and includes the latest software applications such as MirrorLinkTM, CarPlayTM from Apple and Android AutoTM from Google.
Active Info Display shows useful data that’s uniquely configured by you, so that you can enjoy the drive while staying in touch with the car’s driving data. The display also lets you view the Discover Navigation map if you want to.
The models to be launched will include the Comfortline and Highline equipped with a 1,0 litre engine partnered with a seven-speed DSG gearbox. The engine produces 85 kW of power and 200 Nm of torque. It reaches the 100 km/h mark in 10,2 seconds and maintains a combined fuel consumption of 5,3 litres per 100 km with a top speed of 193 km/h.
