Volkswagen sets clear standards in terms of equipment: Customers can choose between the design-oriented Style and the sporty R-Line specification packages. For both lines, those who want to up the style factor can select 19-inch alloy wheels instead of the standard 17-inch wheels.
The Style specification package stands for design and individuality. With a total of four different décor options for the vehicle interior, standard ambient lighting, 17-inch Mayfield alloy wheels with a lacquered finish and optional leather packages available in two colours, a personalised experience is guaranteed. The specification package with the standard Composition Infotainment system, which includes USB and Bluetooth interfaces, as well as the online services offered by We Connect produces an harmonious overall package.
The R-Line specification package is resolutely sports-oriented and incorporates the contents of the R-Line exterior and interior packages, which are offered as options for the T-Roc, as fixed elements. The sporty orientation is further emphasised by the standard fog lights, the sportstuned running gear and the progressive steering with speed-dependent steeing control. The adapted sports sets with the integrated head restraints and the specific seat covers in a combination of fabric and leatherette with R-Line branding are a particular highlight. Thanks to the standard electrically adjustable lumbar support, the vehicle is not short on comfort, and the selectable decorative fabrics offer options for individual customisation.
The basic technical equipment for both variants includes Front Assist with City Emergency Braking System and pedestrian detection, the Automatic Post-Collision Braking System and the Lane Assist system.
Dynamism is written into the DNA of the T-Roc family. The front-wheel drive convertible enables sporty and agile driving in everyday situations and radiates with the confidence of an SUV. It handles city driving just as easily as a long-distance journey. The available engines enable relaxed cruising at all times – especially when the soft top is opened. Customers can choose between two efficient turbocharged petrol engines with 85 kW / 115 PS (200 Nm torque) or 110 kW / 150 PS (250 Nm torque). The manual six-speed gearbox comes as standard with the 1.0 threecylinder engine with 85 kW; for the more powerful 1.5 four-cylinder engine with 110 kW, a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox is also available as an option.
As a stylish and sporty member of the T-Roc family, the TRoc Cabriolet pushes the boundaries of an automobile. It stands for both utility and freedom, as well as performance and comfort. The design, which is as charming as it is cool, sparks positive emotions. Its high-quality soft top opens in nine seconds, even when driving at speeds of up to 30 km/h. What’s more, the crossover utility vehicle (CUV) boasts all of the familiar strengths of Volkswagen SUVs: elevated seating along with numerous customisation options. With these features, the T-Roc Cabriolet establishes itself as an embodiment of vitality and driving pleasure, developed for adventurous people who are looking for freedom both in their everyday lives, as well as off the beaten path. The crossover convertible will be officially presented at the IAA international motor show in Frankfurt am Main from 12–22 September 2019. The launch will take place in spring 2020.
Positioned within the segment under the Tiguan, the T-Roc and the T-Roc Cabriolet both share its design basis: the modular transverse matrix (MQB). The MQB enables developers to create a compact design and a completely independent body style. The T-Roc Cabriolet is 4,268 mm long, with a wheelbase of 2,630 mm. The vehicle is 1,811 mm wide (without exterior mirrors) and 1,522 mm high. The driver and front passenger are seated at a comfortable 599 mm over the tarmac (rear seats 616 mm) and therefore can enjoy a great view. Inside the twodoor model, the drivers and passengers can expect a high degree of flexibility and generous open spaces. The same goes for the 284-litre luggage compartment, which is something to be proud of in the compact crossover segment. The versatility of this vehicle concept is also underscored by an optional towing bracket.
Following on from the tradition of the Beetle and the Golf Cabriolet, the T-Roc Cabriolet has a classic soft top. The soft top itself consists of the linkage, the headliner, an all-over cushioned mat and the outer cover. The development team configured the longitudinal joints of the outer material shell (centre panel and two side panels) in a way that enables them to function as an additional drip rail.
