2021 Volkswagen T-Cross pricing and specs detailed: Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke rival scores CityLife variant

The new VW T-Cross CityLife is priced from $30,990 before on-road costs.

Volkswagen has added some more “polish” to the T-Cross light SUV range, introducing the new CityLife variant.

The German brand has announced this new special edition will be available with the option of a ‘Bamboo Garden’ colour theme (which isn’t actually the material but Volkswagen’s name for a unique shade of green), or black if you prefer a more conservative palette.

The Bamboo Garden option includes unique black-bamboo seat upholstery, 17-inch alloy wheels with black and bamboo colour surfaces, gloss bamboo coloured side mirrors, tinted rear and side glass, and what VW calls a ‘transitions’ dashboard that features both black and grey elements.

Naturally the black-themed version offers the same options, but in the darker hue.

To ensure the colours work, Volkswagen is offering the CityLife in a limited range of exterior hues. The Bamboo Garden trim is only available with ‘Pure White’, ‘Limestone Grey’ metallic and ‘Deep Black’ pearl effect, while the Black theme can only be had with ‘Pure White’, ‘Reed Blue’ and ‘Energetic Orange’.

But, wait, that’s not all. The CityLife comes with a number of extras not fitted to the standard T-Cross Life. This includes dual-zone climate control, keyless entry and ignition, comfort sports seats, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and electronic-folding side mirrors.

The CityLife is powered by the same 85kW/200Nm 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine and paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission with front-wheel drive.

The T-Cross CityLife is priced from $30,390 before on-road costs, which is a $2000 premium over the T-Cross Life. There’s no cost difference between the Bamboo Garden and Black colour schemes, but premium paint adds $600.

Volkswagen Australia says the T-Cross CityLife is limited to only 1000 examples.
