Volkswagen South Africa recently announced pricing for its three-strong upcoming T-Roc range. And now the German firm's local arm has detailed the options list, too.
At the local launch in November 2020, the range will comprise the front-driven T-Roc 1,4 TSI Design and the 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.
So, what sort of optional extras will be available? And what will they cost?
Well, opting for a contrasting roof colour (offered in white, black or red) will add R3 150 to the price, while specifying a panoramic sunroof will cost you some R13 400.
A trailer hitch (R8 700), smoker’s package (R400), adaptive cruise control (R5 600, including forward collision warning), the Discover Media touchscreen system (R17 300) and wireless smartphone charging (R4 000) will likewise be optionally offered across the line-up.
Other range-wide options include a parking package (R6 200, with park assist and a rear-view camera), a Beats sound system (R9 500) and a R10 250 equipment bundle that incorporates a camera system, electrically folding and heated side mirrors, blind-spot monitor plus, rear traffic alert and a lane-keeping system.
Extras available only on the base- and mid-spec variants (many of these are standard on the R-Line derivative), meanwhile, will include LED headlamps (R13 850), active info display (R9 200), keyless entry with an electric tailgate (R10 650), various 18-inch alloy wheel designs and Vienna leather upholstery (R12 000, including electric adjustment for the driver’s seat).
VW SA furthermore offers extensions to the standard five-year/90 000 km service plan, stretching as far as a 10-year/300 000 km arrangement for R47 512.
As a reminder, 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.
