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.
