Volkswagen lifts the lid on T-Roc


Volkswagen has revealed its all-new T-Roc crossover SUV.

The T-Roc is the German automaker's latest entry into the ever-growing market of crossovers and is up against the likes of Audi's Q2 - on which it is based - Nissan's Juke and the Toyota C-HR among others.

Every model comes with a plethora of safety kit as standard including front assist area monitoring with city emergency braking - to help prevent low-speed crashes - pedestrian monitoring, and lane keep assist.

Other standard equipment includes air conditioning, an infotainment system with colour screen, LED daytime running lights and LED taillights.

In terms of design it is easy to see that its sibling is the Audi Q2, especially at the rear where they both share a large panelled area behind the rear doors.

Inside, the T-Roc has some funky touches such as trim and upholstery designs that match the exterior.

It's practical, too, with a capacious 445-litre boot capacity. Fold the seats down and this increases to an impressive 1,290 litres – enough to cart garden waste to the tip.

All models are available with a choice of both turbocharged petrol or turbocharged diesel engines. Volkswagen's 4Motion four-wheel-drive system is also available with certain engine choices.

There is also a choice of either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG automatic.

Prices for the T-Roc will start at around £18,448, with the car hitting dealership forecourts across Europe from November later this year.
