When it comes to the SUV market, it’s fair to say we’re spoilt for choice – but Volkswagen’s new creation is different to the norm and most certainly deserves your attention. Its sporty coupé silhouette stands out from the crowd, and its beauty’s not only skin-deep.
Fresh and contemporary no matter which way you look at it, the new T-Roc has been built to enhance your urban lifestyle – it’s engaging to drive, it’s packed full of the latest infotainment equipment and offers you a variety of personalisation options.
In the upmarket interior, find colour-matched dashboard inserts, satellite navigation and MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for your entertainment. And next to the gear lever, you’ll find a badge spelling out ‘Emotion’.
Ever so slightly shorter than the Tiguan but fashionably wide as an SUV should be, the T-Roc’s not short on space – the front seats are comfortable and roomy, and the rear is surprisingly spacious too, with more than enough head and legroom and a good view thanks to a 46mm higher seating position than at the front. The 445-litre boot offers enough space for all you could need for the family, with the option to extend this by folding the 60/40 split folding seats for an almost flat load bed. Now that’s space sorted – but what’s it like to drive?
The new T-Roc will be available with three petrol engines offering 113bhp, 148bhp and 187bhp, along with diesel engines offering 113bhp and 148bhp. Choose from a six-speed manual and seven-speed DSG twin-clutch semi-auto transmission, paired with your choice of front-wheel drive or Volkswagen’s 4Motion 4x4 system.
No matter which of these powerful and refined engine options you choose to go under the bonnet, the Volkswagen T-Roc offers crisp steering, agile and fun handling, supple suspension, progressive and powerful braking and more – this is a compact crossover that you can confidently push to the max.
