The T-Roc Cabriolet will be the first crossover cabriolet in the compact class with it offering a distinctive, striking design. It will see its official presentation at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) from the 12th-22nd September. The open-top model will add further variety to the already impressive SUV segment and will give customers a unique driving experience.
Following the tradition of the Beetle and the Golf, it similarly has a classic soft top, that opens in just nine seconds. It can open and close with the car in motion, at speeds of up to 30 km/h, with it locking and unlocking electromechanically. Passengers riding in the T-Roc Cabriolet will be well guarded by the roll-over protection, which can be extended behind the rear seats. It is designed with a reinforced windscreen frame and plenty of other structural modifications in order to exchange maximum safety.
With state-of-the-art technology, the Cabriolet is always online thanks to its next generation Infotainment system (MIB3). It offers completely new services and functions making every journey one to look forward to. The new system has an online connectivity unit, including an integrated eSIM. This means the Cabriolet can, if desired, be permanently online as soon as the driver has registered it in the Volkswagen system. The infotainment system screen is 8 inches and when used in combination with the optionally available Active Info Display, with its 11.7-inch screen, a completely 'Digital Cockpit' landscape can be created.
The customer can choose between the ‘Style’ and ‘R-Line’ equipment lines. The Style specification package embodies a focus on design and individual flair. The R-Line specification package is resolutely sports-oriented and incorporates the contents of the R-Line exterior and interior packages, which are offered as options for the T-Roc, as fixed elements.
