Are you excited about the Volkswagen T-Cross? Well, we suggest you read on. We now have more information about Volkswagen Philippine's upcoming model. After the price and the powertrain details, our source has now told us how many variants and colors will be available for the subcompact crossover.
Starting with the variants of the 2021 T-Cross, customers will be able to choose between two – the entry-level 1.5L MPI Trendline and top-spec 1.5L MPI Comfortline. As mentioned in our previous article, the Trendline is expected to be priced at PHP 1.1 million while the Comfortline at PHP 1.25 million. Yes, the DTI safeguard bond of PHP 70,000 is part of the price.
Now, onto the colors. There are a total of five, including three that are quite loud. Depending on the exterior color, it will match with a corresponding specific interior trim. The paint and matching interior trim are as follows: Syringa Violet with Black and Storm Grey interior with Violet Trim; Tribu Yellow with Black and Storm Grey interior with Yellow trim; Romance Red with Black and Storm Grey interior with Red trim; Chinchillagray with Black interior; and Polar White with Black interior.
The louder colors (Violet, Yellow, and Red), together with Chinchillagray and Polar White, will only be available on the top-spec Comfortline variants. Meanwhile, Trendline owners will have to settle between just gray or white. Do note that not all colors might end up being offered locally. Our source says Volkswagen Philippines is still finalizing the color options. More importantly, the automaker has yet to decide what color will be the “hero color” of the T-Cross. Maybe we can help them out. Let us know what you think should be the best color for the subcompact crossover.
Unfortunately, there is still no information about the specs and features of the Philippine-bound T-Cross. But, thanks to Volkswagen Philippine's latest teaser, we know the Comfortline model will be offered with a panoramic sunroof. It is unknown if the Trendline will also get a sunroof as standard.
What else can the T-Cross offer? Upon checking the SAIC-Volkswagen website, the top-spec T-Cross in China comes with a 6-speaker Beats audio system paired to a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system. In front of the driver sits a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster, and wireless charging is available. Safety-wise, the range-topping variant also comes with autonomous emergency braking (AEB), fatigue monitoring, and adaptive cruise control.
Hopefully, most, if not all of the features found in the range-topping T-Cross offered in China make their way to the Philippine-spec model. If all the high-tech goodies are included in the PHP 1.25 million price tag, Volkswagen Philippines will have a very serious contender in their hands, no matter what the color is.
