As part of what it describes as the biggest model offensive in its history, Volkswagen is extending its model range by adding a compact-class crossover: the T-Roc.
Volkswagen says that it offers maximum personalisation, innovative digitalisation, perfect connectivity, leading-edge driver assistance systems, dynamic engines, and a modern, expressive design. It adds that it is a car that is just as much at home in the city as it is on rough terrain.
The European SUV market is booming, especially in the compact segment. Experts estimate that the segment will almost double in size during the next decade. It is for this reason that Volkswagen is bringing in another attractive model in the compact SUV space, below the Tiguan: the T-Roc.
Volkswagen claims that it sets new benchmarks and is equally appealing to customers of every age. With its sporty modern design, it stands for a new emotive Volkswagen style and sets a new course within the model range.
Volkswagen says that numerous design elements define the new five-seater’s style: at the front it is the wide radiator grille unit with integrated dual headlights and the repositioned light signature, which make the T-Roc unmistakable even at night. The off-road look is enhanced by all-round, dark plastic trim, which protects the bodywork around the wheel arches and side sills, as well as the vehicle’s front and rear.
The interior has been adapted to the exterior design. It has a robust SUV feel and modern treatment of surfaces. The interplay between the ‘Active Info Display’ and the specific infotainment system creates a new, digital and interactive cockpit. Via smartphone and ‘Volkswagen Car Net’, it is possible to use a wide spectrum of online services and apps and to integrate your phone and/or media library.
The T-Roc entry-level version comes with high-tech systems such as front assist area monitoring with city emergency braking and pedestrian monitoring, the automatic post-collision braking system, and lane assist. Also part of the base specification are details such as air-conditioning, the composition colour infotainment system, LED tail light cluster, visual underbody guard (black ), and LED daytime running lights in the bumper.
Volkswagen will offer the T-Roc in the familiar Trendline, Comfortline, and Highline grades.
The new T-Roc is being offered with efficient turbocharged engines: three petrol engines (TSI ) and three diesels (TDI ). They are being offered partly with front-wheel drive and manual gearbox, partly with front-wheel drive, 4Motion all-wheel drive (including 4Motion Active Control as standard ), and the dual clutch gearbox (seven-speed DSG ).
The T-Roc is expected to go on sale in December, with cars available to view in showrooms during their roadshow in November.
