Cebuana Teacher Goes For The Volkswagen T-Cross As Her First Car

When the Volkswagen T-Cross was launched, Stara Mae Tiongco—a high school teacher in Cagayan de Oro City—immediately set her eyes on the one colored Syringa Violet.

Being Stara’s first vehicle purchase, brand reputation and vehicle reliability is important for her. Credits to her mother who helped choose their ideal model as their family’s first Volkswagen vehicle. Stara narrates, “When [my mother] was young, Volkswagen was already an elite brand and had built up a reputation for craftsmanship, precision, engineering and durability. Plus, she’s forever a fan of ‘The Love Bug’ movie where the cute and sturdy Beetle is the star.”

Stara Mae has certainly been bitten by this “love bug” which makes her see the world in rose-colored glasses, or rather in Syringa-colored glasses. A guaranteed stand out among other cars on the road, Stara proudly drives around her Syringa Violet T-Cross with the windows down and panoramic sunroof drawn—filling the interiors with warm sunlight and fresh summer air during her daily drives. “I always get good vibes whenever I’m at the steering wheel,” Stara states as she describes how much she enjoys driving in utmost comfort and style in the T-Cross.

The most interesting thing she enjoys with her T-Cross are its trendy interiors. True to being an eye candy, its playful interior hues match its exterior color paired with attractive leather and fabric trims. On top of that, transporting teaching materials from one location to the next is a breeze for Stara with the T-Cross’ ample cabin space of 329 liters of luggage compartment expanding up to 1,319 liters with folded rear seat bench.

Plenty more of Stara’s good vibes likely come from another additional source—the T-Cross’ large 9.2-inch infotainment system with Wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity. This lets her enjoy high-quality digital surround sound projection. “This completely makes my day whenever I listen to my favorite tracks,” Stara Mae gushes.

Stara has a penchant for stepping on the gas pedal at times, stating that “My T-Cross is the best sub-compact SUV for highway runs. It’s very smooth on the road.” With various safety features such as Electronic Stabilisation Program (ESP), Hill Hold Control, Anti-Slip Regulation, Rear Parking Distance Control, and the rear camera, Stara stays continuously safe and in control of her drive regardless of the driving condition. “I feel safe in this car because it has plenty of safety features. Also, I’m assured that when I traverse flooded roads, I won’t get stranded because of its high ground clearance,” Stara shares.

With Volkswagen’s aftersales campaign “Keep your Volkswagen running like a Volkswagen,” the T-Cross is covered with delightful aftersales services on all fronts. This includes once a year periodic maintenance services (PMS) leading to 20 percent less cost of ownership compared to its competitors. This is on top of 100,000-kilometer or 3-year warranty coverage program (whichever comes first), 3-month stock on parts, enhancements in service quality via Express Service, and free 24/7 Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERA). “Buying this was not only a smart choice for my lifestyle, but also for our wallet.” Stara stresses.
