Power pack: 2.0 TSI, 221 kW (300 PS) power, 400 Nm torque

  
Price: starting at 43.995 Euro with generous standard equipment





For years, the letter "R" has adorned the Volkswagen brand's extremely sporty models. With the T-Roc R1, Volkswagen is now bringing the new top model from the successfully launched T-Roc product line onto the road. Thanks to its four-cylinder TSI engine with a displacement of 2.0 litres, the compact performance CUV has an output of 221 kW / 300 PS and a torque of 400 Nm. The new T-Roc R is available to order now.


The T-Roc R comes standard with a 7-gear dual clutch gearbox and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. The performance data is R-specific: The T-Roc R can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h. Sporty running gear with a 17-inch brake system ensures agile handling. The new T-Roc R is available from EUR 43,995 (in Germany), including a broad spectrum of standard equipment.



The sporty characteristics of the T-Roc R are underscored by the unmistakable design on the exterior and in the interior. The radiator grille has a polished silver band of anodised aluminium on the bottom that runs the entire width of the vehicle. The R-specific bumper is painted the same colour as the car. The light units in the vertically arranged daytime running lights are integrated into the front. The rear bumpers include visual air outlets in the upper part and an “R” diffuser in a contrasting colour.



The twin-exit exhaust system on both the left and right are specific to the “R” model. As an option, an R "Performance" exhaust system can be selected for EUR 3,800, in which the rear silencers are made of titanium. The T-Roc R is equipped with the 18-inch Spielberg alloy wheels as standard. The 19-inch Pretoria Dark Graphite matte alloy wheels are available as an optional extra for EUR 820.
