With its package of features, the T-Roc sets new benchmarks and is equally appealing to customers of every age, from young singles to empty nesters. With its sporty modern design, it stands for a new emotive Volkswagen style and thus sets a new course within the model range.
Snappy, sporty dimensions on the outside; great functionality on the inside – that’s the new T-Roc. The optionally front-wheel or all-wheel-drive all-rounder combines the aplomb of an SUV with the agility of a sporty compact model. And it does indeed rock the segment – in varying ways depending on specification and colour-combination. The T-Roc is the first VW SUV that will be available to order in two-tone paintwork with visually contrasting roof section (including the A-pillars and exterior mirror housings).
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 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 the telephone and/or media library.
If all five seats are occupied, luggage space when loaded up to the top edge of the rear seatbacks totals 445 litres. The backrests can also be folded down in a 60/40 split, yielding luggage capacity of up to 1290 litres.
The new T-Roc is positioned within the segment below the Tiguan and is also based on the modular transverse matrix (MQB). Like the Tiguan, the new T-Roc is being offered with efficient turbocharged engines – three petrol units (TSI) and three diesels (TDI), with a choice of front-drive or 4Motion four-wheel-drive, plus a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission.
