Volkswagen will welcome a guest to its SUV line-up in April with the introduction of the T-Cross CityLife, a special model aimed at delivering exceptional value to the brand's most affordable SUV.

Introduced last May, the T-Cross made waves in its first year in the Australian market with its urban yet refined duality. Based on the 85TSI Life variant, the T-Cross CityLife special model retains the more rugged features of the Life and adds polish and functionality.

Priced at $30,390, the T-Cross CityLife sits in the middle of the T-Cross range between the 85TSI Life ($28,390) and 85TSI Style ($31,390).

At a premium of $2,000 above the Life variant upon which it is based, T-Cross Citylife adds a comprehensive list of styling and equipment enhancements as standard including foldable gloss door mirror covers, upgraded alloy wheels, CityLife tailgate badge, 'Transition' black-grey dashboard décor, Black or Bamboo themed upholstery, tinted rear and passenger row windows, dual zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and start, comfort sport front seats, and blind spot detection with rear traffic alert.

Powered by the T-Cross range's existing 1.0-litre 3 cylinder engine, the T-Cross CityLife delivers 85kW and 200Nm through a 7-speed DSG transmission and front-wheel drive.

A total of one thousand T-Cross CityLifes are being built.

The T-Cross CityLife is available in two dynamic colour themes - Bamboo Garden and Black - each with a unique set of styling elements distinguished by their contrasting colour detail. Each theme is offered in its own selection of complementary exterior colours.
