Introduced in 2017, more than one million T-Rocs have been made, helped by the addition of a sporty R version in 2019 and a funky Cabriolet model last year.
Volkswagen has focused on giving the T-Roc a more upmarket interior, with a softer dashboard replacing the solid plastic found on the outgoing car. There’s also new fabric on the door trim, while the R-Line model now benefits from sports seats.
The touchscreen, which measures either eight or 9.2 inches, is also moved from being integrated into the dashboard to being positioned higher up like a tablet. There’s also a new multifunction steering wheel to build the feel of the cabin.
Design changes are relatively light on the exterior, though new LED headlights are fitted as standard, while the lights at the rear are now tinted too. Matrix LEDs are also available as an option, as is an illuminated radiator grille strip, as seen on the Polo and Golf. Volkswagen has also introduced five new colours and revised the choice of alloy wheels.
A new semi-autonomous ‘IQ.Drive Travel Assist’ feature joins the options list, while the T-Roc now uses the Volkswagen Group’s latest media software, enabling additional online services and wireless smartphone mirroring.
The updated T-Roc will also adopt Volkswagen’s latest trim levels, with Life and Style options set to replace the pre-existing Design and SEL offerings, while the sportier R-Line and R versions will remain.
The engine choice is also set to go unchanged, with buyers having a range of petrol and diesel options to choose, ranging in power from 108bhp through to the flagship 296bhp R model.
UK pricing for the range will be announced in the coming months, with first deliveries expected in Spring 2022.
