Volkswagen has announced a further 1,800 T-Roc R examples are headed down under. Launched in Australia in September last year, it represents the most attainable R variant, at $60,300 plus on-road costs.
A new, and cheaper still, Grid Edition is also on its way next month, at $54,300 plus on-road costs. Both are unmatched in the compact SUV segment for a combination of power, performance and practicality.
They’re powered by a 221kW and 400Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, paired with a 7-speed DSG transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive, and are capable of zero to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds.
The 2023 Volkswagen T-Roc R Grid Edition comes standard with 19-inch Pretoria graphite alloys, black roof rails, adaptive chassis control with race mode, progressive steering, R exterior and interior styling, and performance LED headlights with auto high-beam.
You’ll also find exterior ambient lighting, keyless access, a 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system with voice and gesture control, Digital Cockpit Pro, wireless phone charging and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Volkswagen’s IQ.DRIVE safety system includes travel assist, active cruise control, lane assist, park assist and a rear view camera. The full T-Roc R swaps out the wheels for 19-inch Estoril alloys and adds a host of additional features.
These include premium LED tail lights with dynamic indicators, additional IQ.DRIVE items such as side assist, rear cross-traffic alert and proactive occupant protection. An electric tailgate offers easy open and close functions.
Nappa leather appointed upholstery and heated front seats (powered for the driver) also feature, while an optional Black Style package adds a host of blacked out items, including roof paint, mirrors and roof rails, as well as carbon-look trims inside.
A Beats audio system and Lapiz Blue matte décor inlays can also be added. To find out more, visit your local Volkswagen dealer. If you’re keen on either variant and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
