Spring is a beautiful season across the world and more so in Europe. With the winter chill on its way out and the lush green greenery back. Its is the time before the harsh summer sun sets in. A time to enjoy the nature as it is meant to be. March is also the season when people start having this itch to drive with the top down. To enjoy the wind in the hair. To meet this desire, VW has launched the convertibel T-Roc, an SUV which will allow you to soak in the Sun and smell the flowers as you drive down your favourite twisty.
The T-Roc is a small SUV with a canvas top which can be raised and lowered automatically at speeds up to 30 Km/h. The car is offered in two trims, the “Style” and the more sporty “R Line”.
The R Line is offered with a 1.5 litre 150 PS Turbo petrol mated either to a manual or a dual clutch DSG. The Style on the other hand has an additional power unit available, which is a 1.0 litre 115 PS Turbo petrol. The Style comes with 17″ Mayfield alloy wheels, white ambient lighting, an air conditioning system, lane keeping system Lane Assist, Autonomous Emergency Braking Front Assist, Driver Alert System, Composition radio system and much more. The options list includes a Digital Cockpit and top-of-the-line “Discover Media” Infotainment system. Both cars come with 280 litres of boot space which can be increased by folding the rear seats. VW also offers a towing hook as an optional extra to allow the vehicle to tow caravans.
The 1.0 litre engine is frugal with a mileage of 15.9 Km/l while 1.5 litre drinks a bit more of the golden fluid stretching each litre to 14.5 km.
