The new Volkswagen T-Cross compact SUV is set to be fully uncovered soon following a series of teaser under the theme “I am more”. Under the fourth teaser “I am safe”, the company boasts that the T-Cross will be launched as one of the safest vehicles in its class thanks to its full suite of advanced driver assist systems.
The T-Cross will feature Lane Assist lane-keeping system and Front Assist area monitoring system with City Emergency Braking System and Pedestrian Monitoring as standard across all variants. Stepping up the range, it can be further equipped with Blind Spot Monitor, Rear Traffic Alert, proactive occupant protection system that closes windows and sunroof, tightens seat belts and increases brake pressure in the event of an accident as well as Adaptive Cruise Control.
Other key information that has been revealed prior are the T-Cross will adopt the group’s MQB platform, strictly front-wheel driven, has one of the most spacious interiors in its class and will come in no less than 12 exterior options.
Once the Volkswagen T-Cross makes its global debut, it will be measured up against the likes of the Honda HR-V and Mazda CX-3, both models which are highly popular in the Malaysian market. If Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) offers the T-Cross here, will its funky looks and extensive features sway you away from the popular Japanese brands?
