Challenge the status quo with the new VW T-Roc

The T-Roc is more than just another car on the road. With a personality that really packs a punch, you’ll enjoy the confident, strong appearance of the vehicle on the road while the sporty coupe silhouette makes the vehicle look longer and sportier.

There are customisable colour options which allow you to really personalise this car and make it your very own drive.

Interior

The interior of the updated T‑Roc comes packed with high-quality equipment. All controls are at your fingertips with the multifunction steering wheel, controlling not only the T‑Roc, but also the radio, media player, telephone and the view of the Digital Cockpit.

Technology

Whether you’re out and about during the day or night or in bad weather, the IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights, ensure better visibility.

Dynamic Light Assist helps to predictively illuminate winding roads and ensures that oncoming traffic is not dazzled even when the main beam headlights are active.

Don't have any hands free? You can now easily open and close the boot of the T‑Roc with your foot. As part of the Easy Open & Close package, the Keyless Access system recognises the key in your pocket and with a swift movement under the rear end the electric boot lid opens or closes automatically. Making everyday life that little bit easier.

First Look at Volkswagen T-Roc

It’s been on sale for four years now, so was definitely ready for a facelift.

What is it?

The T-Roc has been a hugely popular model for Volkswagen, tapping into the huge demand for crossovers with badge appeal and build quality. It’s been on sale for four years now, so was definitely ready for a facelift.

VW has refreshed the T-Roc for 2022, bringing new styling tweaks, upgrades to the interior and a revised engine range.

What’s new?

Generally speaking there’s not a whole heap of difference between this and its predecessor. However, the keen-eyed will notice that the chunky-looking front end has been tweaked to have a softer, curvier appearance.

Bigger changes can be found inside, where the dashboard has been replaced with a more premium-feeling soft-touch material. There’s also a new infotainment system and the multifunction steering wheel from the Golf.

What’s under the bonnet?

There are three petrol and two diesel engines available on the standard T-Roc. The petrol engines start with a 108bhp 1.0-litre, with a 148bhp 1.5-litre engine in the middle of the range and a 187bhp 2.0-litre unit at the top.

As for diesels, there are two 2.0-litre options with 113bhp or 148bhp. There are also front- and four-wheel-drive options depending on engine, as well as manual and automatic transmissions.

The performance-focused R has a 2.0-litre petrol engine making 296bhp and has an automatic transmission with four-wheel-drive as standard. It can go from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds.

How does it look?

Mid-life refreshes often come with subtle styling changes, and while the T-Roc hasn’t been overhauled, it’s noticeably different from before. That softer front end comes in the form of reworked headlights with a new LED running light and a redesigned grille.

At the rear there’s a chunky lower bumper with new LED lights, while new 16- to 19-inch alloy wheel designs are available.

What’s it like inside?

The updated T-Roc has taken a more noticeable step inside, with more modern technology and more premium materials. There’s a new digital instrument display ahead of the driver, while the infotainment display now sits proud of the dashboard and is 6.5, 8.0 or 9.2 inches depending on trim.

It also gets the new Volkswagen Golf’s multifunction steering wheel, revised switchgear and new fabric door trims. Opt for the R model and you get some unique parts, like a flat-bottomed steering wheel and R-specific instruments.

What’s the spec like?

There will be a variety of infotainment displays, while the driver assistance systems will likely be more extensive on higher trims.

We also know that the R model will get a sporty body kit for the outside, and a range of technology and equipment upgrades over regular models to cement its place as the flagship of the range.

Verdict

Although it’s too early to get behind the wheel of the new Volkswagen T-Roc, it’s clear that the German firm has given the model a decent makeover that should make it worthy of your attention.

The T-Roc has always been an excellent option in the crossover market, but with improved equipment and a stylish new look, it should push itself back into contention as one of the best in class.
