All-new VW T-Roc has €20,390 starting price in Germany

Mind you, that will only buy you a three-cylinder, front-wheel drive model

Fresh from the T-Roc's world debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, VW has announced it is taking orders for the small SUV, with the entry-level model equipped with a 115-hp 1.0 TSI engine being priced from €20,390 in Germany.

At launch, the T-Roc is available with a choice of three engine options: the 115-hp base unit with front-wheel drive, the 190-hp 2.0 TSI with seven-speed DSG and 4Motion all-wheel drive, and the 150-hp 2.0 TDI, also with the double-clutch transmission and AWD. In total, there will be six engines available, with outputs ranging from 115 hp to 190 hp.

The T-Roc is VW's smallest SUV so far, slotting below the Tiguan in the automaker's lineup. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's not roomy. Thanks to the good-for-all MQB platform, the new model offers a cargo volume of 445 liters — one of the largest in its class.

VW also claims the T-Roc has "a Golf-like level of ride comfort," always thanks to the modular architecture it uses.

As a sign that it targets a younger audience, the T-Roc is the first Volkswagen SUV available to order in two-tone exterior paintwork, with a contrasting roof section that includes the A-pillars and mirror caps.

Also targeted at the young are gadgets such as the Active Info Display digital instrument panel and Volkswagen Car-Net connectivity system, while available assistance systems include Front Assist, Lane Assist, and Traffic Jam Assist.

For European markets, the T-Roc will be made at VW's plant in Setubal, Portugal. Market launch across Europe begins in November.

If, for some reason, you don't fancy the T-Roc, you should know the VW Group also offers it in a more Latin flavor as the SEAT Arona .
