Outdrive the ordinary with the new VW T-CrossOpens an external link. Priced from R334 600 for the Comfortline and from R365 000 for the Highline, it’s ready to turn heads. Keep on reading to discover the specs, highlights and options of the enthralling new Volkswagen T-Cross.

Be first in line to play by your rules with the T-Cross R-Line


The 110 kW R-Line version of the T-Cross hits South African soil in Q1 2020. The vehicle will obliterate convention with a 1.5 TSI engine and stun the standard with an upgraded exterior design package. Bold, unique lines and elements such as 18’’ Nevada alloy wheels exaggerate the R-Line exterior design, while ultra-connective technology like App-Connect, wireless charging and Active Info Display make your journeys worth the drive.

The T-Cross is Volkswagen’s first-ever compact SUV and is built to cross the city, province or wherever impulse takes you. However, when it comes to safety features, that’s one place where the T-Cross always plays it safe. It’s abundantly equipped with the latest Volkswagen safety features including:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control optional
  • Park Distance Control
  • Lane Assist optional
  • Blind Spot Monitor optional
  • ISOFIX for fastening children’s seats

Technology at it's most innovative
