A first glimmer of summer has arrived early with news from Volkswagen that the T-Roc Cabriolet is on the way.
The latest in a dynasty of Volkswagen Cabriolets spanning seventy one years and numerous successful models, the T-Roc Cabriolet should arrive here with a choice of a couple of specification levels.
It should also come with a likely choice between two petrol engines - a 1.0 litre TSI 115 PS and a 1.5 litre TSI 150 PS. The latter should also have the option of a seven speed DSG transmission, in addition to six speed manual versions of both.
Aside from the fabric folding roof which can be lowered in nine seconds and raised in eleven seconds.
The T-Roc Cabriolet is distinct from the standard T-Roc in its two-door body style and its wheelbase, which has been extended by 40 mm compared with its five-door, solid-roof sibling. This allows maximum room for passengers in the cabin, as well as a useful 284-litre boot capacity.
