Building on a stunning success story
High-quality materials, a new Infotainment display, and the Digital Cockpit were all included as standard in the interior. In the form of IQ, advanced technology from higher vehicle classes has been integrated into the compact SUV model family. With LED matrix headlights and IQ assist systems, there’s a lot of light.
Travel Assist and predictive ACC cruise control are available. As part of its ACCELERATE strategy, Volkswagen is making significant progress toward becoming a software-oriented mobility provider in this manner.
Over the past four years, the Volkswagen T-Roc has become a popular, best-selling vehicle because of its modern design, dynamic performance, and rock-solid flexibility. It became an important pillar in Volkswagen’s product program suddenly, despite having no direct antecedent.
More than one million units of the small SUV have been sold since its introduction in 2017. The T-Roc R, a very sporty vehicle, has been available since the end of 2019. The T-Roc Cabriolet has been available since the spring of 2020, combining the benefits of an SUV with the option of driving with the top down.
Modern on the inside, fresh on the outside
The new dash panel, which has a foam-backed surface and prominent seams, adds contemporary and high-quality design features to the inside of the new T-Roc. The infotainment display has been redesigned to look like a tablet and is now located on the dash panel in line with the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.
The infotainment display is either 8.0 inches or 9.2 inches in size, depending on the equipment. The small SUV comes standard with a digital instrument cluster, which can be upgraded to the Digital Cockpit Pro, which has a screen size of up to 10.25 inches. The standard multifunction steering wheel features a novel design that helps the vehicle’s intuitive control.
Fabric door trim of superior quality is now standard. Door trim and armrests, like the head restraints, are made of leatherette and have designer seams in the Style and R-Line equipment lines. The center panels of the ArtVelours comfort seats are another characteristic of the Style equipment range.
Top-of-the-line sports seats for both the driver and front passenger (previously only available in the Volkswagen T-Roc R), as well as Nappa leather upholstery, are available as options in combination with the R-Line.
The new T-external Roc’s lines have been accentuated, emphasizing the vehicle’s recognizable crossover shape. Standard features include LED headlights and dimmed backlights.
On request, IQ LIGHT is available with LED matrix headlights and an illuminated radiator grille strip, as well as tail light clusters with a novel visual layout and dynamic turn signal. Customers may now choose from five new exterior paint colors and new 17- and 19-inch alloy wheels, giving them even more options to personalize their vehicle.
Turbo engines and optional DSG and 4MOTION
There are three TSI and two TDI engines to select from in the new T-broad Roc’s driving lineup. The front axle is driven by a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed DSG, depending on the driving mode. The three-cylinder 1.0-litre TSI engine has a maximum output of 81 kW (110 Hp).
A 1.5-liter TSI engine produces 110 kW (150 Hp), while a 2.0-liter TSI engine produces 140 kW (190 Hp). The lineup is completed by two 2.0-liter TDI four-cylinder engines with 85 kW (115 Hp) and 110 kW (150 Hp) outputs, respectively.
4MOTION all-wheel drive, in combination with the 110 kW (150 Hp) diesel engine, provides greater power transfer as an alternative to front-wheel drive. The 2.0-liter TSI engine produces 140 kW (190 Hp) and comes standard with 4MOTION.
The new Volkswagen T-Roc is connected and digital
The sophisticated assist systems Front Assist and Lane Assist are standard on the new T-Roc. Furthermore, at speeds up to 210 km/h, the new IQ.DRIVE Travel Aid and Predictive Cruise Control assist with steering, braking, and accelerating.
The vehicle control system may combine local speed limit information, town boundary signs, crossroads, and roundabouts by combining signals from the front camera with GPS and map data.
The third edition of the Modular Infotainment Toolkit (MIB3) is included in the new Volkswagen T-Roc, allowing for the usage of a range of online-based functions and services. As part of the regular subscription, We Connect Plus services are available across Europe for free for a year.
This implies that streaming services and natural online voice control are now accessible. If requested, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionalities may be remotely connected into the control system through App-Connect Wireless.
Three attractive versions to choose from
Because of the reorganization of equipment lines, the T-Roc may be tailored even more simply to individual preferences. The tiny SUV is now available in Europe in three additional configurations: Life, Style, and R-Line, in addition to the base T-Roc.
The interior of the Style equipment line features two-tone paint, additional chrome elements, background lighting, and convenience seats. The R-external Line’s look and equipment are now heavily influenced by the top-of-the-line T-Roc R.
The distinct personality is reflected in a variety of ways, including a bold, athletic bumper design and a multifunction sports steering wheel with touch control.
In addition, the new T-Roc comes with a sports package that includes driving profile selection, progressive steering, and sports running gear, as well as the R-Line equipment line. Customers may also choose between a Black Style design package and the Style and R-Line equipment lines. Its black exterior and interior design components give it a sporty vibe.
Best performance: the new VW T-Roc R
The new T-Roc R is the most sporty small SUV in the model family, with a 221 kW (300 Hp) four-cylinder engine. This is aided by the standard sports running gear and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The athletic performance is visibly underlined in the interior and the R-specific exterior, in addition to the unmistakable sound.
Touch controls and the model-specific R button provide fast access to driving profile selection on the newly designed sports leather steering wheel.
Pure fun: the new VW T-Roc Cabriolet
The new T-Roc Cabriolet represents driving pleasure, independence, and a passion for life more than ever before. It combines the toughness of an SUV with the joys of a convertible as an open-top crossover type. The three-layer cloth soft top on the new T-Roc Cabriolet is electrically powered and opens in less than nine seconds.
Style and R-Line equipment lines are available for the open-top four-seater. Customers may pick between a 1.0-liter TSI engine producing 81 kW (110 Hp) and a 1.5-liter TSI engine producing 110 kW (150 Hp).
The new T-Roc and T-Roc Cabriolet will be ready to order by the end of this week, while the new T-Roc R will be available at the start of the new year. All versions will be available from dealers in spring 2022.
