VW T-Roc Gains 187 HP Diesel, Two New Design Packs In Europe

Volkswagen has added a top-of-the-line engine and two design packages to the T-Roc range in Europe.

For starters, the compact SUV gets a 2.0-liter TDI four-cylinder turbodiesel engine rated at 190 PS (187 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque in the range-topping Sport trim level. The new power plant is paired as standard with a seven-speed DSG dual-clutch gearbox and 4Motion all-wheel drive.

Equipped with the new powertrain, the T-Roc covers the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 7.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 216 km/h (134 mph). Unsurprisingly, this model is the most expensive T-Roc you can buy in Germany, not counting the extreme T-Roc R, and starts from €35,105 (approximately $38,650), including VAT.
