2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet

2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet

A more affordable alternative to the Range Rover Evoque Convertible

The 2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is a drop-top version of the company’s subcompact crossover. Launches two years after the coupe regular version, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet isn’t just a T-Roc with a soft-top, it also features only two doors instead of four. What’s more, the soft-top has a sleeker design, so the Cabriolet looks sportier than its standard sibling. Inspired by the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet and the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet is Volkswagen’s only small convertible to date after the discontinuation of the Beetle.

The soft-top and the revised shape of the roof are the only features that set the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet apart from its standard sibling. The bodywork and the interior are similar, as is the technology package. They’re identical under the hood as well, although the 2020 T-Roc Cabriolet doesn’t yet feature the more powerful gas engines. Volkswagen doesn’t offer diesel mills for this model either. Let’s find out more about this bold convertible in the review below.

Volkswagen T-Roc goes topless for fresh air fun

Convertible SUVs are only slightly more common than hen’s teeth these days, primarily because there doesn’t seem to be a huge market for them, yet VW has taken the plunge and launched one of its own - the new T-Roc Cabriolet, a model the manufacturer promises has a lot of appeal thanks to the many qualities it blends together.

The New Volkswagen T-Roc R Is More Than Just a Sporty Variant Of The T-Roc

The New Volkswagen T-Roc R Is More Than Just a Sporty Variant Of The T-Roc

It comes to Geneva with more than a hundred horses over the standard crossover

Gone are the days when performance cars used to be a different segment altogether. Even hatches and pseudo-SUVs these days offer enough horses to stop you dead in your tracks. The latest addition to the list is Volkswagen’s baby SUV. The German automaker has injected the T-Roc with steroids and named it T-Roc R. The T-Roc R was launched at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, and it comes riding on 296 horses!

2019 Volkswagen T-Roc R Production Concept

2019 Volkswagen T-Roc R Production Concept

Golf R Packed in A T-Roc Body For Equally Sharp Hotness, Only On A Bit Higher Positioned Seat

In an unprecedented invasion of performance SUVs, the Volkswagen Group introduced yet another performance crossover - the Volkswagen T-Roc R. It is basically a buffed up version of the highly sought after subcompact crossover T-Roc. Digging a bit deeper one can find a whole lot of the Golf R under its subtle body. And, that is a good thing. As for now, the Volkswagen T-Roc R is a near-production concept car. Yet, as is the case with the Cupra Formentor Concept, I believe it will be greenlighted for production in a few months following the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show.

The T-Roc R joins a quite astounding lineup of performance crossovers that include the Cupra Ateca, the Cupra Formentor Concept, the Skoda Kodiaq RS, the Volkswagen Tiguan R-Line with 240 horsepower engine, the Audi RSQ3, and the Audi SQ5 TDI.

Obviously, I included here almost all performance SUVs regardless of the power output. They do target similar customers. Do you really think someone in love with the Formentor does not dream bigger - like about the SQ5? Of course they do.

Obviously, Volkswagen is big on giving the drivers what they really want, and although it came to the SUV/Crossover party a bit late with the T-Roc, it definitely moved in the right direction with the hot one.

2019 Volkswagen T-Roc R

VW’s fastest compact SUV to date

The Volkswagen T-Roc R is not yet officially unveiled, but we know what it looks like thanks to a fresh round of spy shots. The car has been spotted at the Nurburgring numerous times where it’s undergoing high-performance tests while giving us a clue of what to expect. Spy shots reveal the T-Roc R sans any camouflage, and it looks largely similar to the regular T-Roc with just a few minor updates to make it stand out.

2019 Volkswagen T-Roc GTI

2019 Volkswagen T-Roc GTI

The company’s first SUV with a "GTI" badge?

Launched in 2017, the T-Roc is Volkswagen’s smallest crossover yet. Built on the MQB platform that underpins several Volkswagen Group vehicles, it’s related to the Audi Q2 and Seat Arona and competes against the likes of the Nissan Juke, Toyota C-HR, and Renault Captur. Ever since it arrived in showrooms, there have been rumors that Volkswagen may develop a GTI version of the mini SUV. Come 2018, and the beefed-up crossover was spotted testing on public roads.

Performance-oriented models are quite rare in this niche. Although the segment is populated by at least ten models from various companies in Europe, none of them are available with power upgrades. Nissan used to offer a Nismo version of the Juke, or even the extreme, GT-R-powered Juke-R, but these variants are no longer available. This means that the T-Roc GTI will be a unique model and will have the entire market to itself. At least for a while. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table in the speculative review below.

Report: VW will Launch the T-Roc R, Tiguan R, and Arteon R Sometime This Year

Report: VW will Launch the T-Roc R, Tiguan R, and Arteon R Sometime This Year

Well, the Golf R won’t be so special anymore it seems

As of the time of this writing, the Volkswagen Golf R is the only car offered by VW with an R badge. All of that is apparently about to change, as reports indicate that VW will be giving the R treatment to a big portion of its lineup, beginning with the T-Roc R, Tiguan R, and Arteon R. Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this rumor, but there’s more to it.

2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R-Line

Still not coming to the U.S.

The Touareg and Tiguan have been so successful in their first years on the market that Volkswagen decided to expand its crossover lineup with at least three new models. One of them is the T-Roc, and it’s the company’s smallest SUV until the T-Cross arrives. Built on the ubiquitous MQB platform, the T-Roc slots under the Tiguan and it’s related to the Audi Q2 and Seat Arona. Developed to compete with popular subcompact crossovers like the Nissan Juke, Renault Captur, Toyota C-HR and many more, the T-Roc is now also available in R-Line spec, Volkswagen’s top trim outside the GTI and R models.

Now available on a wide range of cars, the R-Line package is both sporty and stylish, creating a unique look that you can’t get with the usual options. This is available for the T-Roc too, which gets sportier bumpers front and rear, while a the body-colored elements from the sides and around back make the crossover look less rugged. It’s a bit far-fetched to say that the T-Roc R-Line is more elegant than the standard model, because not many SUVs are, but I must admit that the small SUV looks really well with body-colored side skirts and rear apron. As usual, the engines are shared with the standard model, but Volkswagen added a bespoke suspension setup for a sportier ride. Let’s find out more below.

VW Teases a New Global SUV and It’s basically a T-Roc That’s Not for Europe

Gotta get that model count up, bruh!

The world is crazy over SUVs, so automakers are rushing to fill every possible little niche they can to secure their piece of the pie. Over in Europe, Volkswagen has done just that by introducing the T-Roc as a model that slots below the Tiguan. But, the U.S. and the rest of the world needs a compact SUV as well, and that’s why Volkswagen has teased what it’s calling the Volks-SUV or “Peoples SUV.” It will slot below the Tiguan in in most other markets outside of Europe, including the United States. It will hit dealers in China first and will eventually be imported from Mexico into the U.S.

We Don't Know Why but Volkswagen Confirms Intent to Produce T-Roc Cabriolet in 2020

We Don’t Know Why but Volkswagen Confirms Intent to Produce T-Roc Cabriolet in 2020

Apparently, VW thinks the SUV convertible market is a real thing

The Volkswagen T-Roc compact SUV is getting a convertible version. Yes, you read that right. Volkswagen’s jumping into the sparsely populated SUV cabriolet market. Those who know the German automaker’s history shouldn’t be surprised at this development because a concept version was introduced in 2014. But just as we thought that it was nothing more than a show car, Volkswagen apparently had a different idea. And so, it’s come to this. Like it or not, the Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is not only a real thing, it’s also scheduled to be launched in 2020.

2018 Volkswagen T-Roc

2018 Volkswagen T-Roc

Are you ready to let the T-Roc "Roc" your world?

Remember back in 2014 when Volkswagen put the T-Roc Concept on display at the Geneva Auto Show? Well, you should, because it was one of the few VW concepts that we could actually appreciate and the one that we really looked forward to seeing in production form. Fast forward to today, and VW has decided to spill the beans on the all-new T-Roc just a month before it’s set to make its first major appearance at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Billed as an innovative compact crossover, the T-Roc boasts a large number of standard features, a sporty exterior design, lots of cargo room for its size, and a massive list of drivetrain options. Driver assistance features fill the list of standards as well, while there are enough options to make the T-Roc customizable to just about any taste, whether your bland and boring or like to stick out like a sore thumb. Three trim lines make up the T-Roc family tree, with the base model offering a good, affordable starting point, while the upper two trim levels – Sport and Style – bring lots of personalization and stand-out options that are exclusive only to those trim levels.

As an all-new model, that we really haven’t known too much about until now, we truly have a lot to talk about. But, you can rest assured that Volkswagen wasn’t playing games or being lazy when it came up with this compact crossover. It’s very well thought out, full of all the goodness that should drive sales and should certainly stand out in the very crowded segment for which it now resides. So, with that said, let’s dive on in and talk all about it – you never know; this just might be your next new car.
