Volkswagen PH confirms T-Cross arrival
During the virtual presser Friday, Felipe Estrella, president of the local distributor for the German automaker Volkswagen dropped the bomb, saying that it would be introduced within the next few months.
Such revelation was made following their teasers posted on their official social media page.
According to Estrella, the global SUV offering—which was revealed simultaneously in Amsterdam, Netherlands, Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Shanghai, China—have received exceptional sales performance around the world.
Estrella shared that in 2020, the Volkswagen T-Cross had a total of 300,000 units sold worldwide. This helped the brand post a 45-percent growth as compared to the previous year’s figures.
Volkswagen’s first subcompact SUV, the T-Cross (which sits on the MQB platform), was rated with five stars at the European New Car Assessment Program (Euro NCAP) back in 2019.
So while waiting for the specs here’s what Volkswagen Philippines could be bringing in the country.
For its powertrain, it might bringing the 1.5-liter TSI (capable of more than 147 horsepower) or the smaller 1.0 liter TSI petrol engines (we are looking forward to having both).
Among the host of assistive features that comes as standard in the other markets are Front Assist area monitoring system with Pedestrian Monitoring and City Emergency Braking System, Lane Assist, Hill Start Assist, Blind Spot Monitor lane change assist with integrated Rear Traffic Alert.
Further, since many vehicles are now into this, we are hoping that the local version would still carry the other technological fitments such as the wireless charging feature, four USB ports, keyless access locking and starting system and the eight-inch infotainment touchscreen and the most recent generation of the “Active Info Display”.
Are you excited of the upcoming T-Cross? We’ll keep giving you updates as it happens here.
