The facelifted Volkswagen T-Roc

By Tshidi Malebana

In 2022 we are anticipating a face-lift for the versatile and stylish T-Roc which is a compact SUV to look at with its crisp and expressive design since its introduction 4 years ago more than one million T-Rocs were sold and now it brings a wide range of offering nothing standard, the T-roc, the T-Roc Cabriolet and the T-Roc high-performance R.All I'm saying is there is a car for every journey!!

The exterior sleek lines of the T-Roc make a bold statement. No details have been left behind in the recreation of the T-Roc LED headlights and darkened rear lights comes as standard. At your request IQ LIGHT with LED matrix headlights and illuminated radiator grille strip including tail light clusters with new graphic structure and dynamic turn signal. Show off your favourite colour wherever you are as you have an option to choose from five exterior colours and newly designed 17 and 19-inch alloy wheels. Customers will be able to show off their great eye for style and customisable T-Roc style.

It's all in the details inside, you are given an option enjoy Nappa leather upholstery as well as top of the range sports seats for both driver and front passenger which I find interesting as in the past you could only find them in the Troc R. The high fabric door trim is now standard. In the style and R line door trim, equipment line and armrests are made of leatherette and boast designer seams, just like the head restraints. You can never miss a turn with the TRoc 's dual-screen navigation by integrating the signals from the front camera, as well as the GPS and map data, the vehicles control system can incorporate local speed limit information, roundabouts, town boundary sign and junctions. The 8. 0 or 9.2 inches infotainment display and an option of 10.25 inches digital instrument cluster as the digital cockpit pro. An infotainment display designed like a tablet and well-positioned on the dash panel in a line of sight behind a multifunction steering wheel from the Golf which is also a standard now, leading to a simpler way to connect with wireless: Apple Carplay and Android Auto, 3D sound system, automatic car conditioner, clean air filter and reverse camera.

When it comes to engines of the new T-Roc there are three TSI petrol units and two TDI diesel units to choose from paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch DSG gearbox. The lineup pushes a three-cylinder, 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline engine delivering 110 horsepower (81 kilowatts) to the front axle. The larger four-cylinder, 1.5-liter TSI ups the power ante to 150 hp (110 kW) while retaining the FWD layout. Upgrade to the 2.0-litre TSI rated at 190 hp (140 kW) and you get 4Motion as standard.

There is a market for diesel the range rounded off 2.0-liter TDIs, one with 115 hp (The pie is big for everyone to eat and Volkswagen think and believe there is a market for diesel the range rounded off 2.0-liter TDIs, one with 115 hp (85 kW) and the other with 150 hp (110 kW). kW) and the other with 150 hp (110 kW).
The T-Roc was not overhyped it is what it is even its sales in the previous years speak high volumes, it gets you wherever you are headed safely with the IQ drive- a suite of intelligent assistance systems you can count on and keep your passengers safe.
