Crossovers competing against the R560,000 VW T-Roc

The updated VW T-Roc has landed in local dealers at a starting price of R563,800.

For half-million rand there are many competitors in the new car market, whether you’re after a premium crossover or an all-purpose SUV.

Despite this, the VW has been a popular choice for car buyers since its debut in 2020 and the new model brings even more to the table.

In the baseline T-Roc Design, you will find top-end equipment including automatic LED headlights with high-beam assist, rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone climate control, smart entry and push-button start, parking assist with all-round parking sensors, a leather multifunction steering wheel, driver fatigue detection, and hill-start assist.

A configurable driver’s display is also included, as is an 8.0-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and We Connect Go support.

A 1.4-litre, turbo-petrol engine under the hood then gets the job of powering the new VW, producing 110kW and 250Nm.

The motor mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the configuration taking the 1.2-tonne crossover from 0-100km/h in 8.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 205km/h.

An average fuel consumption rating of 6.3l/100km also makes the T-Roc rather frugal, while a decent 445 litres of cargo space in the boot lends it practicality, too.

What’s on offer

With around R560,00 to spend you are spoilt for choice in the broad South African new car market.
