Volkswagen has updated the T-Roc lineup for 2022 with subtle styling revisions and tech upgrades. Order books in Europe will open later this month, with dealer deliveries commencing in spring 2022. Prices in Germany (including VAT) start at €23,495 for the base T-Roc with a 1.0L TSI engine and €31,850 for the T-Roc Cabriolet with a 1.0L TSI engine.
The front fascia has received a minor cosmetic surgery which makes the crossover look a lot more sophisticated than it already looked. LED headlights and darkened taillights are included as standard, however, IQ.LIGHT LED matrix headlights, an illuminated grille strip, and taillight clusters with new internal detailing and dynamic turn signal, are all optionally available for those who want to take the T-Roc’s looks to another level. New 17- and 19-inch alloy wheel designs and five new exterior paint options round off the exterior updates and upgrades for the T-Roc.
Inside, you’ll notice a new dashboard where the infotainment display (8.0- or 9.2-inches) has that “floating” design, and the central air vents are positioned underneath it. A digital instrument cluster is standard while a larger 10.25-inch Digital Cockpit Pro is optionally available. A high-quality fabric door trim is now standard. In the Style and R-Line equipment lines, door trim and armrests are made of leatherette and feature designer seams. Options include front sports seats and Nappa leather upholstery. As for safety and ADAS, Front Assist and Lane Assist come standard. The optional IQ.DRIVE Travel Assist and Predictive Cruise Control enable assisted steering, braking and acceleration at speeds of up to 210 km/h (130 mph).
The electrically operated, three-layer, fabric soft top in the T-Roc Cabriolet takes about 9 seconds to open. The open-top four seater comes in Style and R-Line equipment lines. Buyers can choose from an 81 kW (110 metric hp) 1.0-litre TSI engine and a 110 kW (150 metric hp) 1.5-litre TSI.
A 140 kW (190 metric hp) 2.0-litre TSI engine and two 2.0-litre TDI engines with 85 kW (115 metric hp) and 110 kW (150 metric hp) outputs, respectively, are available for other T-Roc models. The 4Motion AWD system is available on the 150 metric hp diesel engine while is standard on the 190 metric hp 2.0L TSI. Depending on the engine, the transmission will be a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG.
The T-Roc R continues with a 221 kW (300 metric hp) 2.0-litre 4-cylinder TSI petrol engine hooked with a 7-speed DSG and 4Motion AWD system. It also boasts a model-specific R button on the new steering wheel for direct access to driving mode selection.
