The new drop-top T-Roc will be a spiritual successor to the VW Golf Cabriolet, which was quietly dropped from the brand's United Kingdom line-up back in 2016.
With the new cabriolet based on the T-Roc, Volkswagen will further reinforce its presence in the compact SUV segment. It now produces the Tiguan and Porsche Cayman as well as the ultra-low-volume XL1 economy auto. "The Osnabrück plant now has bright prospects for the future", he said.
VW said SUVs are making a key contribution to the growth of the core group brand. "With the cabriolet based on the T-Roc, we will be adding a highly emotional model to the range", stated Dr. Herbert Diess, CEO of the Volkswagen brand.
The Wolfsburg-based firm is investing over 80 million euros (about $100 million) to develop the model and prepare its Osnabrück, Germany, factory to build about 20,000 units annually. Despite the low volume and the small decline, the Beetle Cabrio was Europe's No. 2-selling convertible previous year behind the Mazda MX-5. By then, about 40% of its vehicles will be SUVs. The T-Roc convertible is expected to feature just two doors, a smaller boot to accommodate the fabric top, and is likely to be heavier than the conventional version, thanks to the amount of chassis strengthening it will need to offset the decrease in rigidity due to the loss of the roof.
"Volkswagen is evolving into an SUV brand".
This new model will continue VW's cabriolet traditionwhich dates back nearly 70 years to the original Beetle.
The T-Roc uses the MQB platform, similar to the Volkswagen Golf, Seat León, Audi A3, and Skoda Octavia.
The T-Roc will be offered with three turbo-petrol (TSI) and three turbo-diesel (TDI) engines with a choice of front-wheel drive and a manual or 4motion all-wheel drive with 7-speed DSG.
The 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc will be presented in six engines options.
