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.
Moving on to the newly-available design packages, they’re called “Black Style” and “beats.” As the name suggests, the former brings many black elements including the mirror caps, side trims, bottom grille strip and 18-inch “Grange Hill” alloys, as well as a new decal on the C-pillar with a grey and black graphic pattern, while options include a black roof and black 19-inch Suzuka alloy wheels.
Inside, the styling pack adds a black headliner, black glossy dash pad, and white background lighting. In Germany, the “Black Style” package is available on the Style and Sport trim levels from €1,575 ($1,733) and €1,235 ($1,360), respectively.
As for the “beats” styling pack, it comes with a 300-watt “beats” sound system with six loudspeakers, digital 8-channel amplifier, and subwoofer. The package also includes a Composition Media radio and App-Connect, as well as red accents for the exterior and interior.
On the inside, the package brings tread plates with “beats” lettering, a red dash pad and red background lighting. Exterior upgrades consist of red mirror caps, unique C-pillar decals and 17-inch “Mayfield” alloys with a red edge around the VW badge. The “beats” package is available in Germany on the Style and Sport grades from €720 ($793) and €850 ($935), respectively.
