Not one to lax on some noticeable sales momentum, Volkswagen has introduced a funky special edition of the T-Cross to help fill out the lineup.
Volkswagen has announced a special edition of the 2021 T-Cross small SUV known as the Citylife which will temporarily join the Australian lineup in April.
The T-Cross CityLife will sit in the middle of the range with a price of $30,390 (before on-roads) and will offer a series of upgrades over the base 85TSI Life such as 17-inch alloy wheels, tinted windows and keyless entry.
Other added features such as sport seats and dual-zone climate control should make the T-Cross CityLife a nicer place to be while the addition of blind-spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert will make it safer.
Volkswagen is offering the T-Cross CityLife in a choice of two colour themes known as Bamboo Garden and the creatively named Black.
The Bamboo Garden theme uses black-bamboo material within the seat upholstery, with the wooden theme continuing to the door mirror covers and alloy wheels. Both versions are fitted with a black and grey dashboard covering.
Similarly, the Black theme uses a black and grey upholstery, black 17-inch alloys and gloss black door mirrors.
Buyers wanting a bit of extra kit can option the Sound and Vision package for an extra $1,900 which adds a Beats premium audio system, a digital driver’s display and wireless functionality for the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Under the bonnet remains the punchy one-litre three-cylinder petrol engine making 85kW of power and 200Nm of torque which is sent to a seven-speed DSG and the front wheels.
Volkswagen says it will manufacture 1,000 units of the T-Cross CityLife but it is not clear how many will make it to Australia.
All prices listed are before on-road costs.
