Review: Volkswagen T-Roc

CAR OF THE WEEK: Volkswagen T-Roc

VOLKSWAGEN IS shaking-up the SUV sector with the arrival of its stylish new compact SUV: the T-Roc.

And, echoing the new car’s marketing tagline, those ‘born confident’ are being invited to order the new model at Volkswagen retailers nationwide. To secure one of the initial 1,000 new T-Rocs on offer, and become among the first in the UK to drive it when cars arrive in showrooms and deliveries begin in December, buyers are being invited to visit their local retailer to order their new car.

It is anticipated that demand for the initial cars will be strong, even before a more comprehensive line-up of T-Roc trim levels opens for order in December, and as an extra incentive this first group of 1,000 retail buyers are being offered smart T-Roc accessory running boards – worth £565 – free of charge, further helping them stand out from the SUV crowd.

The T-Roc sees Volkswagen enter a new market segment with this stylish and sporty model. Sitting beneath the established and extremely popular Tiguan SUV, and above the forthcoming new T-Cross small SUV, the T-Roc represents a key element of Volkswagen’s ongoing SUV offensive.

A wide and long stance allied to a relatively low roofline and steeply-raked C-pillar underscore not only the T-Roc’s sporting style but also its dynamic and engaging ride and handling characteristics.

Luggage space in the five-seat T-Roc is generous. Indeed the five-seat car has one of largest luggage compartments in its class – measuring 445 litres when loaded up to the top of the second row seat backrests.

Discussing the T-Roc’s distinctive looks Volkswagen Head of Design, Klaus Bischoff, said:

“Volkswagen has created another authentic SUV with the new T-Roc.

“In launching this crossover we are also bringing a very expressive, even ‘sassy’, design to the streets. This emotional component makes it likeable. The T-Roc is therefore equally well-suited for the urban world as it is for great adventures.”
