2020 Volkswagen T-Roc Black Edition unveiled
Volkswagen has announced a new trim for its globally sold T-Roc SUV. Named the Black Edition, the kit adds slain-out styling to the mid-spec T-Roc SE model and an updated equipment list. Unlike India-spec VW T-Roc, which is available in a single fully-loaded version, there are more than five trim levels in the model on sale in those markets.
The Volkswagen T-Roc Black Edition combines the grille panels, door mirror tops, roof bars, and exhaust pipes with a black finish. The description also refers to the 18 “alloy wheels of the T-Roc. Furthermore, the SUV gains a rear privacy window, and what Volkswagen defines on the C-pillar as a new “eye-catching” decal. It also adds LED headlights as part of the package.
Within, the models of the Black Version feature ‘piano black’ dash pads, black roof covering, a leather-wrapped gear knob, and multifunction sports steering wheel with matching gray stitching and white ambient lighting and footwell lighting.Adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and electrically heated and foldable door mirrors with integrated puddle lights are standard equipment on offer. Offered as accessories are equipment such as Vienna leather upholstery, a Beats audio sound pack, and sports suspension.
The Volkswagen T-Roc Black Edition is available with petrol and diesel engines, much as with the regular T-Roc. Two TSI turbo-petrol options are available–a 115hp, 1.0-liter, and a 115hp, 1.5-liter – and two TDI diesel options –a 115hp, 1.6-liter, and a 150hp, 2.0-liter.
Volkswagen launched the T-Roc here on the Indian market on 18th March. The India-spec model, as mentioned above, is available in a single fully-loaded trim and comes exclusively with a 150hp, 1.5-liter TSI petrol engine coupled with a 7-speed DSG gearbox. LED headlamps, Vienna leather upholstery, a wireless instrument cluster, six airbags, ESC and a coming premium panoramic sunroof are all on offer. The T-Roc in India is rivaling the Jeep Compass and its sister brand, the Skoda Karoq, which was recently unveiled.
