The New Volkswagen T Roc
The New Volkswagen T Roc.Volkswagens tend to be great box tickers; they’re usually cars that appeal to your rational side rather than your emotional one. But with its smallest SUV, the German brand is hoping to show that it can do flair as well as functionality.
At the cheaper end of the line-up, The New Volkswagen T Roc competes with the likes of the Seat Arona and Kia Stonic, even though it’s fractionally bigger than those models. However, move up the T-Roc range and you’ll quickly find yourself in Audi Q2 and Mini Countryman territory.
Interestingly, VW expects the best-selling The New Volkswagen T Roc will be at the cheap end of the range, the 1.0-litre petrol with FWD. That’s right up against an endless list of crossovers based on superminis: the 2008, Captur, Arona, C3 Aircross and new Korean-branded entrants Kona and Stonic. That said, next year VW will have a properly compact front-drive crossover along thelines of the Seat Arona. It’ll be called the T-Cross.
Once the full The New Volkswagen T Roc range is on stream in stream 2018, there will be six engines. Opening the bidding is the popular 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol at 115bhp, but with FWD and manual transmission the T-Roc isn’t too heavy so that engine ought to do a half-decent job. But it isn’t available for test as we write this.
Next up, the 150bhp 1.5-litre with cylinder deactiviation. Top petrol is a 190bhp 2.0-litre, sold only with 4WD and the 7-speed DSG. Diesels also come in 115, 150 and 190bhp outputs, and again the top one mandates DSG and 4Motion.
