VW T-Roc R is a more powerful version of the subcompact crossover. The official presentation of the new items is expected in the coming months.

In the high-performance family of Volkswagen cars, they all receive the “R” prefix, currently only one model is represented – the Golf R, but this is for now. It is believed that the German brand wants to turn the VW R into a full-fledged competitor for the sports divisions of competitors – we are talking about Mercedes-AMG and BMW M. Currently, the guys are testing the “charged” modification of the subcompact crossover VW T-Roc R. Not yet decided , will be released more powerful versions of the crossovers Tiguan and Touareg, as well as the flagship sedan Arteon.

A couple of minutes ago, car publications published “spy” photos of the German novelty, which traveled around the famous Nurburgring race track.

 I must say that the car looks almost ready for the presentation. I also note that it is fast enough and maneuverable for a crossover, albeit a small one.

  Under the hood, the VW T-Roc R may be the familiar 2.0 TSI engine, whose power will be about 300 horsepower. The standard T-Roc R will be equipped with all-wheel drive 4Motion, as well as a 7-speed automatic transmission with double clutch.

  Yes, the “charged” novelty will not receive the power that is in the Golf R, but there is no doubt that this version of the model will be popular.

 The official presentation of the high-performance VW T-Roc R, as well as the open-top version of the crossover T-Roc Convertible can take place in the coming months.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the pickup VW Amarok for winter drive got a generator and a coffee maker.
