Fresh on the heels of my last anecdote-laden review, this trendy Vee Double You gave me plenty of chances to load this article with pleasant stories.
Drive to Defy. Although my co-pilot and I were tempted to visit an appliance warehouse, what Volkswagen of South Africa meant by that tagline is that their new compact crossover is meant for the defiant among us. City slickers get a T-Cross, families should grab a Tiguan while the movers and shakers may welcome this new T-Roc.
Die klein Sportsnutsvoertuig-klas hou aan uitbrei in Suider Afrika en soos ons alhoemeer sien, trek selfs die grootste vervaardigers hul sedan modelle uit die mark. Hyundai is een van die mees onlangse vervaardigers wat hul sportsnuts model reeks meer uitgebrei het met die nuwe Venue.
Slegs twee weke na Volkswagen se nuwe T-Cross die Suider-Afrikaanse mark getref het in September, het Volkswagen elke maand drie voertuie in die top-10 landwye verkope gesien. Met ‘n markwaarde van 22% in Oktober, het die T-Cross die derde beste Volkswagen verkoper geraak, naas die Polo Vivo en die Polo.
Volkswagen turning heads
Just short of two months after its national launch, the new Volkswagen T-Cross not only became Volkswagens best selling SUV and third-highest selling vehicle, but it also became the fifth highest selling passenger vehicle in Southern Africa.

Toying with the idea of a compact city SUV? Besides the new Volkswagen T-Cross, Volvo’s chic XC40 and a stampede of other trendy pavement hoppers, there’s now this new Venue from Korean manufacturer Hyundai.
The long-awaited T-Cross makes its way to our shores
Volkswagen South Africa has just launched its first small-compact SUV contender, just as the German manufacturer announced its new ideals for future mobility. The question, however, begs if Volkswagen did not maybe join the compact SUV rivalry too late? Well, Volkswagen took us on a roadtrip along the Garden Route to prove skeptics wrong.
