Volkswagen to introduce 221kW/400Nm T-Roc R

Volkswagen will debut the T-Roc R at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.

It comes standard with a four-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 221 kW and 400Nm.

It is equipped with a 4MOTION all-wheel drive and a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox as standard. This combination ensures excellent acceleration without any loss of traction. 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 driving modes include a special race mode, which, according to Volkswagen, guarantees an especially sporty driving experience. These measures are supplemented by the 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 completely.

The T-Roc has not been confirmed for South Africa yet, but it’s smaller brother (T Cross) will arrive later this year.
