Western publications have published photos of the updated VW T-Roc coupe crossover. The brand tested the novelty performed by R-Line. It looks like the brand is doing crossover braking tests.
The T-Roc will remain one of Volkswagen’s mainstream models this decade, with a new generation already announced earlier this year. However, it is too early for the current T-Roc to “retire” and instead, it was decided to present an updated version to keep it competitive for another three years. These are the latest spy photos of the refreshed T-Roc showing the model in the R-Line version.
The T-Roc Cabriolet and T-Roc R prototypes were spotted earlier this summer, showcasing an updated exterior without camouflage.
The T-Roc R-Line is now showing subtle changes during what appears to be a brake test for a pre-production Golf-based crossover prototype. The boot lid label and optional equipment fitted to each wheel does indeed suggest that Volkswagen is performing a brake calibration.
As we said, the crossover will receive mostly minor visual changes, including slightly redesigned headlights, a redesigned grille and a redesigned lower front bumper. The rear bumper appears to have been redesigned as well: the tailpipes have been moved to a new diffuser with a lower gloss black finish.
No big changes will happen under the hood as we expect the current TSI and TDI engine lineup to remain unchanged. The choice between a standard six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission should also be offered.
