The Volkswagen T-Roc was first discussed in 2014, and production started in 2017. Designed to be an offroad vehicle with aggressive design, this model almost wasn’t mass-produced. This car is excellent for people who love to explore the outdoors, and buying a second hand Volkswagen T-Roc is a great way to get the vehicle you want with a smaller price tag that buying new.
It is a small and stylish SUV that can handle rugged terrain while still being high-tech. Two-toned paint jobs catch the eye, and some models have digital screens and smartphone mirroring will enable you to stay connected.
The T-Roc comes in options with a powerful engine for exploring the country or smaller engines that are more economical for driving around town. The T-Roc is surprisingly quiet for the power behind the engine, and bigger alloy wheels are available in some models. The storage is expansive so you can fit all your camping or off-roading equipment in the back.
The interior of the T-Roc is well laid out, and everything is right where you would expect it to be. It is also easy to reach all the controls that you need to adjust while driving. Some models also come with more supportive front seats, stainless steel pedals, black roof lining, and leather-trimmed steering wheel for added luxury.
Some later models have an 8-inch touchscreen system nestled in the dash that has a bright and crisp display. Dedicated touch-sensitive keys allow for easy access to commonly used shortcuts. It is also very intuitive, so you don’t have to think very hard while using it. Navigation will calculate three routes to your destination, so you have more control over total time, distance, and fuel cost. You may even want to find a model with smartphone mirroring that allows you to use apps on your phone like navigation and music on the car’s display.
