Coming soon: 2019 Volkswagen T-Roc R
Sporty, high-performance version of VW’s small SUV boasts 300 horsepower.
The sporty version of the T-Roc will be shown at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
The standard VW T-Roc rivals the likes of the Seat Ateca, Skoda Karoq, Ford Kuga and Toyota C-HR to name but a few, but there's only one genuine high-performance rival for the T-Roc R, and that's the Cupra Ateca with which it shares a great deal mechanically.
It will be able to do the 0-62mph run in 4.9 seconds, with a top limited speed of 155mph.
Compared to the normal T-Roc, the R version will have lowered suspension to improve grip, and will also be fitted with the brake system from the VW Golf R Performance.
The T-Roc R will also have selectable driving modes, including a race mode, which features launch control, and the ability to switch off the Electronic Stability Control.
Inside, there’s a scattering of ‘R’ badging around the cabin and a sportier steering wheel. Buyers can also opt for a leather package.
There’s no word on pricing yet, but the Volkswagen T-Roc R will likely cost around the £35,000 mark.
