Spot the difference: What sets the Volkswagen T-Cross apart?

Volkswagen Philippines launched on May 26, 2021 the #TCrossTrendspotting activity, an on-the-road caper engaging the public to take a snapshot and post sightings of the T-Cross anytime, anywhere.

The brand encourages photo fanatics to send T-Cross pictures to the social media pages of Volkswagen Philippines carrying a brief caption of their impressions of the vehicle, along with the hashtag #TCrossTrendspotting and #MoreThan1Thing. Five winners will be chosen to receive an entertainment gadget.

Volkswagen officials said the activity is one fun way of creating awareness for the global SUV, be it on the road, in showrooms or in social media.

The #TCrossTrendspotting activity, which runs from May 26 to June 30, 2021, not only showcases the sleek form and eye-catching details of the T-Cross, but also provides car enthusiasts and the public, alike, with various glimpses of the crossover in different surroundings and conditions. 

The photos, combined with the enticing introductory price offers and outright P30,000 cash discount upon reservation during the promo period, is a steal in its own right, a good buy that lasts for many productive and stylish years.

Fitted with a long wheelbase, the T-Cross offers spacious, versatile 5-seater cabin or about 1,319 liters of cargo space. The T-Cross also comes equipped with electronic stabilization program (ESP), cruise control, tire pressure monitoring system, and rear park distance control (PDC), with additional LED headlights, six airbags, rear camera, and autonomous emergency braking (AEB) for the SE variant.

At its heart of the T-Cross is the Euro6 emission standard 1.5-liter engine with 6-speed  Tiptronic  AT in both variants (180 MPI AT S and the 180 MPI AT SE) for optimal fuel efficiency and satisfying power in both city and countryside drives.

The T-Cross’ design and engineering attracts an upwardly mobile, results-oriented, and no-nonsense millennials expecting automobiles to keep in pace with their moods and passions.

Every T-Cross unit that rolls out of any of Volkswagen’s four global manufacturing and assembly hubs in China, Brazil, Germany, and India is consistent with the exact design and engineering specifications and standards of Volkswagen Germany.

So far, the T-Cross has lived up to its global stature after its successful introduction in 2018, and hitting sales of over 300,000 units in 2020. The T-Cross has crossed over to 55 countries in the course of 2 years.

With its form and power, the T-Cross has been a recipient of multi-awards across the globe, earning 5 stars in the European New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), the Australasian NCAP, and Latin NCAP safety rating.

Aftersales service is also a another winning facet of owning a Volkswagen -T-Cross. Volkswagen Philippines’ aftersales will make sure that the T-Cross is for keeps. With its once a year periodic maintenance service (PMS)  or 10,000 km, whichever comes first, the T-Cross is on average  up to 40 percent more affordable than the industry standard, versus most of its competitors in the segment in the duration of 5 years of ownership. This would be on top of the warranty coverage of 3 years, or 100,000 km (whichever comes first); spare parts warranty of 2 years, and; service quality consistent with Volkswagen standards across the world.

Volkswagen Philippines is extending the  introductory price offer of P30,000  off the standard retail prices until June 30, 2021.

The global SUV is now available since May 26, 2021 at all Volkswagen dealers nationwide at    limited  introductory prices of P1.068M for the 180 MPI S and P1.168M for the 180 MPI SE.
