VOLKSWAGEN T-ROC R: INTRODUCING NEW TOP VERSION OF THE COMPACT CROSSOVER MODEL
Volkswagen T-Roc R is set to be unveiled at the International Geneva Motor Show (7 – 17 March 2019).
Volkswagen R is a 100% owned independent subsidiary of Volkswagen AG. The letter R has stood for racing since the first model, the Golf R32, so T-Roc has some racing pedigree.
T-Roc R, comes with a 2.0 litre four-cylinder TSI engine generating an output of 221 kW/300 PS as well as torque of 400 Nm. It is equipped with a 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a 7-gear DSG dual-clutch gearbox as standard. The Volkswagen T-Roc R can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 4.9 seconds, while the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h.
The racing pedigree is enhanced further due to sports running gear box and lowered suspension, that’s ensures ideal road holding. The progressive steering included as standard plays a major part in ensuring agile driving behaviour, while the 17-inch brake system – which was previously only found in the Volkswagen Golf R Performance provides enhanced braking.
The driving modes include a special race mode, which guarantees an especially sporty driving experience, specially when you get launch control feature, which provides optimal traction during acceleration while offering maximum drive torque and a corresponding stability management program. The ESC (Electronic Stability Control) feature can be manually switched off to ensure particularly dynamic driving on the edge.
