We are ready to Roc with the Volkswagen T-Roc

Volkswagen unveiled the all-new T-Roc in Italy ahead of its launch in December. The new compact crossover is based on the Golf, with the practicality of an SUV and the quirky and dynamic hatchback styling. 



Herbert Diess, Chairman of the Volkswagen Brand Board of Management commented “The T-Roc sets a new benchmark in the booming SUV segment. The T-Roc embodies all good Volkswagen qualities” 




The T-Roc is snappy with sporty dimensions outside and great functionality inside. Stay connected while driving with the cutting-edge Infotainment systems like Car-Net which brings the internet to your car. You can also choose additional features that let you connect apps, navigate, and send safety and security notifications to your phone.

Inside the T-Roc is roomier than the Golf, with more shoulder and head room in the front and rear, as well as a 445-litre boot. 


T-Roc exterior


“This car really rocks the SUV segment – sometimes louder and sometimes more subdued, according to its specific options and colour combination. It is a new Volkswagen which takes the brand and its owners into the next decade of mobility.”
