Volkswagen launched sales of the “charged” Volkswagen T-Roc ROctober 15, 2019
The German automaker launches the new T-Roc R in Europe as the hottest version of the company’s subcompact SUV, which, as it turned out, shares its power plant with the Golf R.
Volkswaagen T-Roc R was the first SUV of the brand, which also received the prefix “R” in the name. Under the hood of the model is a turbocharged 2.0-liter unit that produces 296 hp. power and 295 Nm of torque. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a DSG dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission, which is uncontested.
With so many “horses” under the hood, it’s not surprising that the T-Roc R can accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 5 seconds – 4.8, to be precise. The maximum speed is electronically limited at around 250 km / h, as is the case with fast VW models.
Engineers equipped the T-Roc R with an understated sports suspension, large brakes, a servatronic and electronic stability control, which can be completely disabled. Customers can also order the “bass” exhaust system Performance A Titanium from Akrapovic.
As expected, the exterior of the new VW T-Roc R has a more aggressive look, thanks to the R-style bumpers, unique black-fin air intakes and new daytime running lights. The taillights with LEDs are darkened, and the 18-inch wheels are replaced with 19-inch dark graphite.
Inside, you can find sports front seats, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with App-Connect, a digital instrument cluster and a sports leather steering wheel. Customers can order wireless charging, adaptive Stop & Go cruise control, Rear Traffic Alert, and more.
Prices for the new Volkswagen T-Roc R in Germany start at 43,995 euros, making it 2,290 euros cheaper than the Golf R.
