2023 Volkswagen T-Cross

When buying your first car, you want to ensure that the vehicle you are about to purchase is reliable and has an excellent brand reputation.

Such was the case with Stara Mae's first vehicle purchase, the Volkswagen T-Cross.

Stara Mae is a Cebuana teacher who chose the T-Cross as her first vehicle citing the brand’s strong reputation in the country and its connections with the Iconic Volkswagen Beetle.

The color of attraction

One of the main aspects of the Volkswagen T-Cross that attracted Stara to it was its Syringa Violet color. The T-Cross has unique exterior colors that help it stand out in a sea of typical whites, blacks, and grays. It also provides the Volkswagen crossover with a standout look that sets it apart in a sea of traffic.

To add to this, the T-Cross also comes with a panoramic sunroof that lets plenty of natural light inside the vehicle with the option of opening it to provide some fresh summer air ventilation. 

Like its unique exterior color options, the Volkswagen Crossover has a trendy interior. True to being eye candy, its playful interior hues, and attractive leather and fabric trims match its exterior color. 

On top of that, transporting teaching materials from one location to the next is a breeze for Stara with the T-Cross’ ample cabin space of 329 liters of luggage compartment expanding up to 1,319 liters with folded rear seat bench.

Tech and more

Regarding technology, the Volkswagen T-Cross has a 9.2-inch infotainment system with Wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity. The head unit lets customers like Stara enjoy high-quality digital surround sound projection. “This completely makes my day whenever I listen to my favorite tracks,” said Stara Mae.

Quality safety features

The Volkswagen T-Cross also sports quality safety features such as Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP), Hill Hold Control, Anti-Slip Regulation, Rear Parking Distance Control, and a reverse camera. 

According to Stara, “I feel safe in this car because it has plenty of safety features. Also, I’m assured that I won't get stranded when I traverse flooded roads because of its high ground clearance.”

These features and more help keep you in control of the vehicle and even help you out in an emergency. 

Easy ownership experience

Another thing to consider when buying a car is the ownership experience. Remember that maintaining and owning a vehicle doesn’t stop after it leaves the showroom floor. It continues for many years.

The Volkswagen T-Cross makes ownership easy, as it has a once-a-year periodic maintenance service (PMS), leading to 20% less ownership cost than its competitors.

This is on top of a 100,000 km or 3-year warranty coverage program (whichever comes first), 3-month stock on parts, enhancements in service quality via Express Service, and free 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERA).

What do you think of the Volkswagen T-Cross as a possible first car candidate?
