Are you interested in a Volkswagen Golf R, but wish it was a bit higher off the ground?
Good news, because Volkswagen recently introduced the T-Roc R, which marks the first time the R department has applied its tuning talents to an SUV since the Touareg R50 of 2008.
Obviously, 11 years means one would expect a lot of progress and VW definitely delivered on this front.
The T-Roc R is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which delivers 220kW and 400Nm of torque. All this power is sent to all four wheels via VW’s famous 4Motion via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
Volkswagen claims a zero to 100km/h sprint time of 4.9 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 250km/h.
While this R model hasn’t been confirmed for South Africa, the standard T-Roc has.
