Volkswagen T-Cross price reduced by $1000 as supply gets huge boost for Australia


The most affordable SUV in Volkswagen’s range has just become a little bit cheaper – and there’s actually a decent chance of getting your hands on one

Volkswagen has confirmed an influx of stock and reduced pricing for its smallest SUV – the T-Cross.

Now priced at $35,990 driveaway, the Volkswagen T-Cross in top-spec Style guise has dropped $1000 when compared to pre-April pricing. Pricing will be locked in until June 30. 

Volkswagen says it has secured an additional 1400 T-Cross Style cars which are now on their way to Australia and will be ready for immediate delivery.

What powers the T-Cross?

Both Life and Style variants of the Volkswagen T-Cross are powered by the same 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that produces outputs of 85kW/200Nm – the same engine is also used in the Skoda Kamiq

This engine is paired to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission that powers the front wheels exclusively.
