On Wednesday, Volkswagen unveiled its flashy new T-Roc compact crossover. The Mini off-roader was introduced to the world in a ceremony on the shores of Lake Como in Italy.
The T-Roc will be available in a base spec or with two higher trim levels: Sport and Style. Rather than one being superior, the trims are equal, acting as alternatives to each other. Style focuses on visual touches, such as a variety of interior colour options, whereas Sport includes more driving-focused features, like sports seats.
The T-Roc measures 4,234 mm in length, 1,819 mm in width, 1,573mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,603mm. The international version of the car gets a long list of safety features such as automatic post-collision braking, active land keeping and a front monitoring system, pedestrian monitoring and emergency braking as standard on all models.
Inside, it uses the automaker’s Active Info Display, to create a new digital cockpit with smartphone and Volkswagen ‘Car Net’ connectivity. Another feature being offered for the new T-Roc is the “Security & Service” package (includes Emergency Service, Automatic Accident Notification and Roadside Assistance).
