Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet Will Debut Next Month

Volkswagen will officially present the T-Roc Cabriolet at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2019.

This is the first-in-the-class crossover convertible based on the Europe-market T-Roc SUV.

The carmaker designed the open-top version for European customers, first of all. It is not planned for North America or Australia, at least in the near future.

The T-Roc Cabriolet’s roof is soft and power-operated at speed up to 19 mph (30.6 km/h). It takes 9 seconds to open.

The car looks funny and bold, indeed, and causes nostalgia for the Volkswagen Cabriolet from the 90ies.

The Volkswagen T-Roc Cabriolet is equipped with four- and three-cylinder turbo motors (1.0- and 1.5-lier ones). They work in combination with a 6-speed manual or 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DSG).

The model comes with the brand’s latest MIB3 infotainment system with an 8.0-inch touchscreen providing online connectivity. An Active Info Display is optionally available. Its interaction with the infotainment system produces the Digital Cockpit.

The regular Volkswagen T-Roc has many rivals is the dense subcompact SUV segment. They are the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke, Dacia Duster, Renault Captur, Opel Crossland X, Mazda CX-3, Ford Ecosport, Honda HR-V, Toyota C-HR.

This successful model sits below the VW Tiguan and above the T-Cross. It currently costs from £20,040 in the UK, €22,620 in France, €25,390 in Germany.

Volkswagen also presented a high-performance T-Roc R in March 2019. The market launch of the T-Roc Cabriolet will take place in spring 2020.
