Successful crossover model
At the end of 2017, Volkswagen expanded its range to include
an all-new crossover in the compact class: the T-Roc. Crisp dimensions outside,
high functionality inside. A stylish all-rounder that combines the sovereignty
of an SUV with the dynamics of a compact hatchback. The T-Roc is just as at
home in the urban world as it is on the most beautiful routes in the world.
The harmonious concept of the T-Roc is the basis of its
success and has already inspired many customers. Since its market launch in
November 2017, it has been sold around 200,000 times worldwide. The compact
crossover’s broad range is now being expanded to include the new T-Roc R, an
emphatically sporty model that appeals to individualists who attach as much
importance to a stylish appearance as to outstanding driving performance.
