In the wake of the decision to discontinue an icon, the VW Beetle, Volkswagen is introducing a drop top version of their small SUV the T-Roc.
While the T-Roc Cabrio looks more fun than practical, it is, according to VW, the only vehicle in its class with a convertible roof. The structure and body don’t scream SUV making the model truly something different.
The engine options are either an 85kW turbocharged 1.0 liter three cylinder or a 110kW 1.5 liter four cylinder. Standard transmission is a six-speed manual, but a seven speed dual clutch automatic is available with the 1.5 liter engine.
One package offers 17-inch wheels, leather interior and ambient lighting. The other adds part leather, part fabric sports seating and fog lights. Additionally, this “sport” package gets an engine retune for gear and steering.
All the new drop top T-Rocs will come standard with pedestrian detection and lane assistance.
Meanwhile consumers can add things like 11.7 inch digital gauge upgrade, Beats audio system and an infotainment system operated via touchscreen.
The drop top T-Roc Cabrio will be a debutant of the Frankfort Motor Show.
