T-Cross ‘checks boxes’

The recent weather we have been experiencing across the Limestone Coast has been warm, but the current deals on offer at Barry Maney Volkswagen as part of the Mount Gambier dealership’s 2024 Volksfest Summer Demonstrator Sale are even hotter, with big savings to be had across a wide range of vehicles.

Everything from Tiguan and Tiguan All Space models, T-Cross, T-Roc and Golf as well as a couple of special guest appearances from Amarok and Caddy are parked at the dealership ready for new owners to enjoy the Volkswagen experience.

The sale is running now until February 29, but with great deals already flying off the lot it’s best “T-Roc” on down and check out the offers and grab a bargain for yourself before it’s too late!

Having recently put the Amarok range in the spotlight, we here at The SE Voice thought it would be a nice change of style and pace to grab Volkswagen’s pocket rocket SUV in the T-Cross and enjoy a nice Thursday drive around the region.

The little T-Cross comes wrapped up in a fun and funky outfit with a range of playful colours, LED tail light clusters and striking front and side profiles which show off the vehicle’s stylish alloy wheels to look the part when cruising around town or hitting the open road.

The T-Cross is every bit an SUV but is nimble enough to take on the urban city scape with ease, with the 1.0-litre turbocharged engine spooling up 85kW of power and 200Nm of torque while sporting an impressive fuel efficiency number of 5.4L per hundred kilometres on a combined cycle.

Popping open the door to the versatile and spacious cabin is also a treat, with supportive and adjustable seating providing maximum comfort for all drives with little details like matching seat upholstery and dashboard decor and a leather steering wheel featuring infotainment and driver aid technology controls able to be operated at the touch of your fingertips.

With smartphone devices being a key part of our day to day lives, Volkswagen has equipped the T-Cross with a wireless charging tray as well as four USB ports to ensure passengers are not forgotten about either, while the optional Sound and Vision Pack kicks up the features even further with a full ‘next-gen’ digital cockpit display to customise gauges and trip data as well as a full navigation map display and high-quality 300W Beats premium audio system to deliver perfect sound throughout the cabin. Priced at just $2,200 it is an optional upgrade well worth the money that will not disappoint.

Ensuring every drive is made even better is a host of drive and safety features including Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE, which gives you greater peace of mind on the road through lane keeping assistance, light assistance and adaptive cruise control while giving the T-Cross an ANCAP Safety rating of 5 Stars – the highest of the Australasian New Car Assessment Program safety standards.

While touring the Limestone Coast it was clear very quickly that – despite it’s size – the Volkswagen T-Cross packed a big punch across the style, comfort, convenience and ride quality categories, being a delight to drive around town and even more impressive with how planted and firm the vehicle drives at speed on the open road, living up to the manufacturer’s tag-line of being a small, city-smart SUV that can get you to places without a worry.

Each Volkswagen sold boasts a five-year unlimited kilometre warranty from the date of first registration and 24-hour roadside assistance for the first year, with five-year service care plans available to ensure hassle free motoring.

This demonstrator Volkswagen T-Cross Life in Reef Blue is incredible value at just $32,990 driveaway including the upgraded Sound and Vision package, which is a massive saving of around $5000 and ready to drive home with no wait time.

Whether you’re scouring the market for a new SUV or looking for something bigger like the Tiguan or Amarok range, don’t hesitate to surf in and see Nathan and Jarrod at Barry Maney Volkswagen at the Crouch Street South site or contact 8721 3400 and take advantage of the 2024 Volksfest Summer Demonstrator Sale now.
