We were able to see 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R in August for the first time, but since then it has been changed. It seems that designers in VW do not sleep, making a unique vehicle with great new design, changed to be attractive to new buyers, but still interesting to the old ones. We are used to seeing how VW makes its greatest model even better and more attractive before, so this is nothing new from their kitchen. As a modernly designed compact SUV, T-Roc R simply has to be even more attractive than other cars.
As we could see from spy photos, made in Nurburgring, 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R got many changes in design, which point at changes in engine strength and performance. That is why we were able to see two doubled exhausts with a large air intake in between them. There are few changes on the front end, too. Wider and massive front end has a wide gridded grille, only similar to the classic VWs, with wide mesh air intake on the bottom of the front end. Large LED front lights are fulfilled with two LED lines below them as fog lights.
As the manufacturer has no secrets from us representing the design of 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R openly, we know many other things about this car, including the engine. It should be 2.0-liter turbocharged four-in-line petrol engine with 305 horsepower. As other new cars from VW got the seven-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel driving system, we are sure that manufacture has decided to put the same combination on this model.
2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R Release Date and Price
As we concerned, not only that VW is proud of their new baby 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R, they are not hiding it from curious people at all. This first showing at Nurburgring was without any cover and protections since manufacturer obviously does not want to hide anything. Even the VW spokesman is willing to answer any journalists’ question. If you want to see how it really looks like, you should visit next Geneva Motor Show (in March 2018) when the first model will be officially represented.
The only bad news is for US buyers, which will not be able to buy 2018 Volkswagen T-Roc R in their country. The manufacturer said that this model is planned for the European citizens only. But, do not worry, the twin brother of this model, 2018 Volkswagen T-Cross is supposed to be shown in the middle of the year for US buyers.
