Four new Volkswagen models will be launched in South Africa this year.
The German car manufacturer announced the news at a recent media event.
The new ID.4, T-Cross, Tiguan, and Touareg were unveiled at the event. An updated version of the Golf GTI and Polo sedan were also revealed.
The new Tiguan will arrive in South Africa during the third quarter of the year with a more striking design and a hi-tech interior.
During the five years since the launch of the T-Cross, it has become one of the brand’s most popular cars worldwide. The new facelift will include LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, as well as LED taillight clusters.
The company recently underwent an official renaming exercise as it unveiled it will now be called Volkswagen Group Africa in line with its plans to expand into Africa.
The German group also hinted at a new small SUV that will be launched next year or the year after that. The model will be assembled at its Kariega plan and will be positioned below the T-Cross.
The third-generation Touareg will feature a sharpened design and improved technology with revised suspension for enhanced driving.
The new ID.4 was voted 2021 World Car of the Year and will be Volkswagen’s first electric car in South Africa. The crossover will be offered in several variants.
