Volkswagen T-Roc officially unveiled

2018-volkswagen-t-roc-15

Volkswagen has revealed the latest SUV to join its range - the T-Roc.

Volkswagen will offer an array of driver assistance and active safety systems on its entry-level SUV as well, with city-speed autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and pedestrian detection standard on the base auto, along with post-collision braking and lane keep assist.

Air conditioning, Composition Colour infotainment system, LED tail light cluster, underbody guard (black) and LED lights in the bumper are included as standard.

Volkswagen says the T-Roc forms part of the company's "biggest offensive in its history" and added that it is a vehicle that "sets a new benchmark in the booming SUV segment".

The T-Roc is a stylish compact crossover that is a bit more interesting to look at than the larger Tiguan.

The T-Roc enters a crowded segment, though VW hopes it will stand out by a combination of functionality, dynamic handling and technology.

In terms of the exterior design, the T-Roc is pretty much what we expected after seeing an uncamouflaged prototype earlier this year.

Russian Ambassador to Sudan found dead in pool
A police official told the news agency that there appeared to be no "foul play". Born in 1954, Shirinsky has become Russia's ambassador to Sudan since 2013.

The T-Roc has a shorter front and longer rear overhang than a Golf and it rides around 8cm higher, but from the centre of its front wheels to the cabin, it's essentially the same as a Golf underneath, just taller, owing to a raised axle line.

Continuing strong diesel sales in rural Ireland, though, have nixed that idea so the T-Roc will come with both DERV and petrol derivatives, with a plugin-hybrid GTE model due soon too. Via smartphone and Volkswagen Car Net it is possible to use a wide spectrum of online services and apps and to integrate the telephone and/or media library.

For those who will have access to the T-Roc, here's what you're going to get. While the feature list in the model here might be different from the global model, the popularity of compact SUVs in India and Volkswagen's need to have a blockbuster hit make a good foundation for the vehicle's launch in India.

Along with the standard T-Roc styling, VW will offer "Sport" and "Style" lines, akin to the R-line and Highline now offered with the Mk7.5 Golf.

The T-Roc will go on sale in Europe first with a range of gasoline and diesel engines. "While the T-Roc "Style" is characterized by exclusive touches such as the interior's decorative panels available in a choice of four colors, the focus in the case of the T-Roc 'Sport" is on sporty features such as the standard sport comfort seats. That increases to 1,290 with the rear seats folded down. The SUV can optionally be configured with ten further driver assistance systems.

There are also options to the safety equipment such as adaptive cruise control, reversing camera (not as common in Europe as Australia), a lane-change system, rear cross-traffic alert, blind spot monitor, park assist including manoeuvring brake function, traffic-jam assist and emergency assist.
