Volkswagen South Africa has announced local pricing for the T-Roc range ahead of its launch in November 2020.

The crossover, which was revealed almost three years ago, slots in above the T-Cross and below the Tiguan. Pricing starts at R489 400 (for the record, the least expensive Tiguan is R491 500).

As previously reported, the T-Roc range will comprise three variants: the 1,4 TSI 110 kW Design, the 2,0 TSI 140 kW 4Motion DSG Design and the flagship 2,0 TSI 140 kW 4Motion DSG R-Line.

The familiar 1,4 TSI unit makes 110 kW and 250 N.m, interestingly directed to the front axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission. VW says that’s enough for a sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 8,4 seconds, a top speed of 205 km/h and combined fuel consumption of 6,9 L/100 km.

The 2,0 TSI engine, meanwhile, generates 140 kW and 320 N.m, which is fed to all four corners via a seven-speed DSG. This powertrain sees the T-Roc reach 100 km/h from standstill in a claimed 7,2 seconds before topping out at 216 km/h. Fuel consumption, meanwhile, is a claimed 8,3L/100 km.

At the start of November, the range will launch with the T-Roc 1,4 TSI Design and T-Roc 2,0 TSI 4Motion DSG R-Line. The mid-tier 2,0 TSI 4Motion DSG Design derivative, meanwhile, is scheduled to hit the market in January 2021. 

A panoramic sunroof, an electronic trailer hitch, a Beats sound system and a parking package will be optional across the range. A three-year/120 000 km warranty ships standard, along with a five-year/90 000 km service plan (with intervals of 15 000 km).
