2021 Volkswagen T-Cross pricing and specs detailed: Mazda CX-3, Hyundai Venue, Nissan Juke and Ford Puma rival now dearer

Eight months after its local arrival, the T-Cross has had its pricing increased.

Volkswagen Australia has increased the T-Cross light SUV’s pricing for the first time since its launch last May.

As before, the Mazda CX-3, Hyundai Venue, Nissan Juke and Ford Puma rival is available in two variants, with the entry-level 85TSI Style and flagship 85TSI Sport both up $400, to $28,390 and $31,390 plus on-road costs respectively.

CarsGuide has contacted Volkswagen Australia to find out why the T-Cross is now more expensive, with exchange-rate pressures expected to have prompted the move. As such, standard equipment is likely to carry over.

For reference, the 85TSI Style and 85TSI Sport are powered by an 85kW/200Nm 1.0-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine, which sends drive to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Motivated by a punchier 110kW/250Nm 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit, a new 110TSI Style variant was set to be added to the range in the second half of last year, but Volkswagen Australia ultimately couldn’t establish a strong business case for it.
