Volkswagen is set to launch its updated T-Roc range this coming August, with significant tech upgrades. The increasingly popular compact SUV will also feature design changes, with a sharper exterior and more premium interior.
This bolstering of the T-Roc range means that not only will Australia receive the entry level Style spec, as well as the R-Line (which replaces the T-Roc Sport), but we’re also getting the performance-focused T-Roc R.
The Style, priced from $37,250 excluding on-road costs, is powered by a turbocharged 1.4-litre petrol engine, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It’s new features will include travel assist, wireless charging, shift paddles, privacy glass and a digital cockpit.
The R-Line, priced from $45,350 excluding on-road costs, is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine paired to a seven-speed direct shift gearbox. New features will include R-Line interior styling, and sports front seats with R-Line fabric.
Digital Cockpit Pro and 18-inch inch alloy wheels are joined by wireless app-connect too. There are also an array of optional extras for both the Style and R-Line, including the Vision Package for the Style, and Black Package for the R-Line.
The sharpening of the exterior design will emphasise the T-Roc’s inner sport nature, with redesigned headlights blending into a new grille, with chrome highlights. Inside, is a new soft-touch dash, with decorative stitching enhancing the premium cabin feel.
The latest version of Volkswagen’s IQ.Drive software will be standard across the range and include travel assist, adaptive cruise control, side assist and parking assist. If you’re looking for a sporty compact SUV, the updated T-Roc will be a great addition.
