Could PH market get the updated Volkswagen T-Cross?
If there's one vehicle from Volkswagen that's due for a facelift, it's the T-Cross.
Volkswagen Philippines did update its B-segment crossover earlier this year, they only gave it new colors and not much else. We were originally expecting it to get a new turbocharged engine and some subtle changes here and there.
In the future, however, we might be saying hello to the facelifted version of the T-Cross. Spotted recently by spy photographers is what looks like the refreshed version of the crossover. While it may not seem obvious at first, it's quite apparent that the Volkswagen T-Cross will get a new face.
For starters, it gets a new grille that appears to have been inspired by the 2023 Tharu (or Taos) – giving it a more assertive look. The LED headlights have been restyled as well and look sleeker than before. Meanwhile, the front bumper is not as busy and seems to have received a new set of fog lights.
Over to the back, designers were also busy changing up the rear of the refreshed T-Cross. While not as significant, the LED taillights look like they get new graphics while the lightbar at the center appears to be bigger and more prominent.
We have yet to see the interior changes on the updated T-Cross. But we can expect the crossover to get a similar look shared with the 2023 Tharu. That means a new fully-digital instrument cluster, a wider touchscreen infotainment system, a rearranged center stack, and maybe some new interior amenities as well.
Under the hood, we can expect the T-Cross to still be powered by a wide array of turbocharged and naturally-aspirated engines. For the Philippine market, we may still get the 1.5-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder although there are rumors going around we may eventually get the 1.4-liter TFSI turbo with a dual-clutch automatic.
With still no word yet if the T-Cross will get a facelift for our market, we'll be keeping our eyes and ears open for any new development.
