Volkswagen to Launch T-Roc R in 2019

A new year brings a raft of opportunities for drivers on the lookout for exciting new models. Hailed by magazines and motoring journalists as the ‘most agile’ and ‘fastest’ car in its class, the Volkswagen T-Roc R is expected to grace the roads in 2019. An updated version of the impressive T-Roc, VW’s R model has been shrouded in secrecy, which has only served to intensify the hype.

What can we expect?

VW has been rather coy when it comes to the new T-Roc R, but we do know that there are a few notable changes to previous T-Roc models. Images suggest that the front of the vehicle is similar in style and shape to its predecessor, but the new model has a different rear, with a 4-pipe exhaust, a sporty boot spoiler and larger, bolder alloy wheels. Inside, the cockpit features state of the art infotainment and digital displays, and there’s a plush, premium feel to the finish.

In terms of performance, VW has made no secret that it wants to create an SUV that is more agile and nimble, and the T-Roc R looks to tick these boxes. This model will feature the same engine as the Golf R, which can reach 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds. The time, will of course, be a little longer for the T-Roc R due to its size, weight and higher centre of gravity, but you can expect a pretty rapid response when you put your foot on the gas thanks to the 2.0 litre, four-cylinder supercharged engine. The T-Roc R will also feature a more robust suspension system and more powerful brakes. The tyres will also be larger and wider, reducing body roll and improving surface grip.

The VW T-Roc R is suited to a range of drivers, from motorists with families and commuters to those who want space, as well as speed and style. The latest version is also likely to appeal to those who want or need to be connected to the outside world, with enhanced digital technology available as standard.

When will the T-Roc R be available to buy?

The most recent images of the VW T-Roc R were captured during testing at the Nürburgring in Germany. A date has not yet been confirmed for the launch of the T-Roc R, but it is expected to land in the UK during the first six months of 2019. Production is underway in Germany, and it shouldn’t be too long before VW confirms a release date. Previous T-Roc models have proven a hit with motorists looking for a sporty, stylish, functional and practical SUV, so the T-Roc R is expected to be in high demand when it reaches UK shores.
