2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R set to arrive in Australia in August priced from $59,300
Volkswagen's cheapest R model will not leave punters wanting for more power, with the 2022 T-Roc R packing a full 221kW punch.
Volkswagen Australia has revealed full pricing and specifications for its 2022 T-Roc R ahead of the high-performance crossover's Aussie arrival in August.
Priced from $59,300 before on-road costs, this entry-level R model undercuts the new Mk8 Golf R hatch by $6,690.
Despite this, the T-Roc R offers just as much power as the Golf R, featuring the same 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder petrol engine producing 221kW of power and 400Nm of torque.
Exclusively offered with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive, it can cover the 0 to 100km/h dash in just 4.9 seconds.
Given its price point, the T-Roc R comes fully loaded with the Digital Cockpit Pro instrument cluster, 9.2-inch Discover Pro navigation system with voice control and digital radio and wireless phone charging.
The T-Roc R also has the comprehensive IQ.DRIVE active safety suite that includes active cruise control, lane assist, side assist, park assist, a rear view camera and matrix LED headlights with dynamic light assist.
Adaptive chassis control with a Race mode setting and a progressive steering system are also added over standard T-Roc models to enhance the driving experience.
Outside, the 2022 Volkswagen T-Roc R rides on 19-inch Estoril alloy wheels and has its looks enhanced with an illuminated grille strip, R badging, matt silver mirror caps, lowered ride height, quad exhaust pipes and a gloss black rear diffuser.
A redesigned cabin will feature in all 2022 T-Roc models, with a new fascia that incorporates a dual-zone climate control panel, piano black trim and soft-touch materials.
Nappa leather sports seats with heating and electric adjustment for the driver feature in the R model, along with a black headliner and tinted rear windows.
An optional Black Style package is offered to enhance the interior with a range of black-painted trim details, while Lapiz Blue matte interior trim inlays are also available.
A panoramic sunroof and 7-speaker Beats audio system round out the options list, along with a palette of 6 exterior colour options.
Details and pricing for the 110TSI and 140TSI T-Roc variants are yet to be announced, but expect more details to emerge closer to the arrival of the complete facelifted range.
